Hello everyone in cyber land! I owe you an update as well as promised pics and videos which I haven't yet posted but I'm home all week so I should have no problem putting everything up. Meanwhile I'll let you know the girls are doing great, they're happier at their new gan each month and are starting to pick up on the language. They even play with each other in Hebrew sometimes. This shabbat Bracha led us all in Shalom Aleichem Friday night then Vishamru at lunch (both of which apparently include everyone linking arms and rocking side to side). Both girls can draw nicely and write their names in English and can both draw people, flowers, and suns. That's it for now, more to follow soon.

Well, it's been a while since my last update (but look, mom, no apologies!). A lot has happened. The girls finished their fabulous Gan Shelanu and went to a new kaytana (camp) for two and a half weeks in the summer before moving on to their new gan. It's a municipal public religious gan which sets them on track for an education in the public religious school system for the next fourteen years. It's a Hebrew speaking gan of 30+ kids, a huge change from their class of fourteen in an all-English gan the last two years. But the gannenot are all really nice and there are a bunch of other English speakers there (including another set of gg twins with a daughter names Eliana!) We told the kids they'd have the language figured out by Chanukka. I hope that happens. Meanwhile they no longer complain about not understanding (at least, they don't complain as much as they used to) and are happy there, so I'm glad. Oh. and the best part is it is just across the street! I have pictures and videos to upload which I will be doing today and tomorrow. I have a new phone, and thus a new camera, so I have to figure out how all this works. But I have some great footage from the last month or two that I really want to share. So keep your eyes peeled for more updates soon!
