Week 15 is up! Another 37 to go.
"Beauty and The Beast" movie at Kent Theater was a perfect ending of your spring break. Kent is a small old theater that we discovered last year during the school playdate. It's not fancy in any way but we like it. It reminds me of a movie theater that was right next to my house back in Russia. The name of that theater was Spartak and that was also the name of our bus stop and that's how everyone called my neighbourhood - Spartak. When I was your age no one was going to movie theaters in Russia. Having a TV and cassette player (like dvd-player but with cassetts) seemed way cooler. But I loved it. To have a movie on there had to be at least 10 people in the audience, so we worked hard to find enough friends to go together. Then 10 of us would seat in the very first raw right in front of the huge screen and enjoy an old Russian movie or cartoons. There were about 10 people in the Kent Theater yesterday.
It's 11:30 PM and we just came back from Seder night at our synagogue. You and Sammy are watching cartoons while parents are having tea in the kitchen.
You made us so proud today as you volunteered to read the questions from seder haggadah for Rabbi. You read loud and wasn't shy to do it in front of a large group of adults. Everyone was so impressed!
Even though we let you sleep longer and you went to school later today after a late night celebration of Pesah, you still had a tough morning crying and saying "I don't want to go to school!". I promised you that right after school we'll go to the playground and it helped you to calm down. One little boy was playing with a bubbles gun and you loved it so much. We agreed to get you one as soon as we see it in the store, but it turned out that there was a guy selling those right there at the park. So here you are - enjoying your new toy and sharing the fun with other kids at the park.
Parents appreciation day at school. Thank you for the sweet poem you wrote to me... and dad. We love it!
Sick day for you and remake for ponies.
Murzilka is a name of a Russian magazine for kids named after this furry dude who is going everywhere with his camera (just like your mom), takes pictures and shares fun facts with kids. This was my favorite magazine growing up and I was so excited when I found it in Brooklyn Public Library. We enjoyed reading it together every night this week. And here you are working on Murzilka project.
Your current reading level is way above picture books, but I still bring some for you from the library. I feel that every picture book is a work of art - story, pictures, the way each page is composed, techniques that illustrator is using. Picture books go beyond reading and as long as you are interested I'll be sharing these treasures with you.
