Passover is nearly over. The matzoh balls were what they were. My kids are used to it. It’s sort of the family joke. Why? Because I’m a fairly competent cook – except for when I’m not.
Spring break is over for my oldest and winding down for the youngest two. The house will be quiet with them both in school all day again. Still, the routine makes me appreciate the moments of special time we create and fit into the cracks between school, homework, work, and sleep.
For Shabbat this evening we’ll talk about the Book of Job. I’m interested to hear what my kids have to say on the subject. I’m usually amazed at what they bring to the table. If that’s a no-go, we’ll discuss the Torah portion for this week or use the guide from Family Shabbat Torah Talk. Either way we’ll have some quiet family time.
