It was indeed an extravaganza. Held in the sports hall at the local community centre with music, dancing, performance and a sumptuous lunch afterwards. I've been to Bar Mitzvas with less food and the cakes could have been served at the best weddings.
The children, dressed in white, sang songs and danced their way through the creation. It was all very impressive.
All the children that is, except DD. DD sat firmly planted on her chair and refused to join in with anything. I tried to persuade her. The teacher tried to persuade her. The music lady tried. In the end we gave up. This is the face we got for our trouble... I was so proud - not.
The other children had a great time.
I didn't manage to photo record much from the party as I was busy sitting with one sulky child on my lap and trying to look proud. Meanwhile, every time I pointed the camera, Sulky Child pulled my arm down so the picture was ruined. So here are the displays of the some of the different days of creation that were made at the Bayit Me'arayach dates.
