You may recall the somewhat awkward and heartbreaking 1st play date we had a week or so ago.
Well, Faith had another friend over today and it went so much better. I think I was more relaxed since I knew what to expect. Aaron also took on the roll of
bossy mcboss mentor and got the girls playing with a ball and also teaching them some karate moves.
I even read them a story! In Hebrew!
We have just bought a set of bookshelves from friends who are relocating to the States and I could finally unpack the last of our boxes. All the books! So while the kids were playing I was unpacking and I came across Not A Box by Antoinette Portis. Its a very simple story about using your imagination, and as I found out, quite easy to translate into Hebrew as I went. The kids loved it.
After the book, the kids took all the empty boxes and created a carnival game, Aaron wrote ‘points’ on each box and they placed them at different heights and then took turns throwing the ball into them to get the most points. Definitely not just a box.
I fed them supper before Faiths friend had to go home and both girls didn’t want the play date to end. I consider that a great success!
