Levey School Shabbat Supper

Shabbat Shalom

Twice a year, the Levey Day School has a Shabbat dinner for students, parents, teachers and friends. Charlotte’s kindergarten class spent painstaking hours making tissue paper flower centerpieces for each table, while the older kids practiced a play to welcome the “Shabbat bride.” While they were getting ready, Margaret, Beatrice and Sadie were in the dairy kitchen of Temple Beth El, helping prepare a vegetarian Sephardic feast. The kids did an amazing job singing and leading prayers and the food–all prepared by parent volunteers–was delicious: homemade falafel, hummus, baba ganoush, carrot salad, roasted peppers and eggplant, chopped salad, matbucha, and an enormous couscous. We’re already looking forward to the next one!

Kidding in November? (It’s not a goat!)

Faithful readers of our blog may have noticed we’ve been a little slack for the past couple of months. We still have a ton going on around the farm this spring–in fact, more than ever! We’re thrilled to announce that we’re expecting our third baby in November!

We didn’t breed the goats last fall, but someone has to give birth on the farm each year! I’ve been laid low by morning sickness for the past 8 weeks, which has been part of the reason for our online absence, but I’m finally starting to feel like myself again, and hope to bring you more regular reports of life (and new life) on the farm. At least until November, when the new baby is due. The girls are calling it “Piggy Wiggle,” and every day they say good morning to my belly. Here are some of the first family portraits!
