I haven’t posted anything since March 9 and haven’t written since the day of Gedaliah’s bris. Wow… talk about a drought. Truth be told, I’ve been busy. *Really* busy.
First things first: The kids are darn cute. As Judi wrote, Purim has happened recently and, as part of the festivities, we went to a Purim Seudah here in KC. At the end of the evening, a clown performed for the children who was fantastic. I’ve done some clowning, and I know how hard it can be and, let me tell you, this guy was talented. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding; ignore the red-eye and take a look at the reaction he got from my kids in this photo.
What else has been happening. Well, mostly, the play. In addition to my teaching duties, I direct the High School play at school. This year, we produced *Lost in Yonkers*, by Neil Simon, and the performances took place this past Wednesday and Thursday nights. I’m not exactly unbiased, since I’m a little too close to things to be impartial, but I think that the students did a bang-up job and the audience response was totally positive. We impressed our audiences for the third straight year which, when you think about it, is pretty remarkable, expecially if you know that we had only eight weeks between our first rehearsal and our opening night.
So, that kept me pretty busy. I’ve also been trying to keep up with school, the newspaper and this year’s yearbook, as well as our school’s once-every-seven-years accredidation process and the fact that we had a baby. That’s a lot to heap onto once plate, so you’ll understand why blogging has slid down the list of priorities a bit.
The kids are great and, as expected, Gedaliah is as cute as a button. This coming Tuesday is his one-month-day and he is already responding to visual and auditory stimuli and has, thank-God, been sleeping through the night since he and Judi came home from the hospital. He eats nicely, poops nicely and is generally good natured so we’ve got nothing to complain about… and lots and lots to be thankful for.
