Today was Palm Sunday and of course, at church, we had a parade with the palm branches in the church for the kids. It was wonderful (this is one of my favourite church days of the year) other than that LB and his friend, J, decided, right at the front of the church in front of everyone, to start a light sabre battle with their palm fronds. LB is good at giving everyone a laugh and with eyes on him, he plays it all up.
We also made pretzels today, which ended up being a lot of fun. We talked about the reason we were making them and we worked together to shape them (it ended up being a whole family affair). They ended up looking like dog poop but they tasted good and the kids had never made anything with yeast before so they were pretty excited. It will give them some background understanding that we can use when we make matzoh later in the week.
