I wish I was able to get on here more, but the kids keep me super busy, I was really hoping this could be a more helpful guide to people thinking of converting or those going through it since there wasn’t much when I started. Maybe one day I’ll get there! If you stumble across this blog at some point and have questions, don’t hesitate to ask! I also recommend following the Coffee Shop Rabbi, she’s super great and you’ll learn a lot!
The husband has guaranteed he will get off in time to make it to Shabbat at least once a month, so I’m very excited about that. Hanukkah gifts are already wrapped and ready to go for the most part. I figure I’d better get that done because I’ll be busy with Ozzie recovering from his surgery next month 😦 I am starting to become a hot mess about it, and I feel bad because it’s making things that should be fun, like thanksgiving, really sad for me. I just hope ok doing a good job at not letting that show. Please keep my little guy in your prayers! It would be much appreciated.
wishing you all a happy, healthy, and peaceful year!
Lots of Rosh Hashanah crafting going on today! 🙂 I’m especially excited for services this year because an hour before the adult service is one especially for the 5 and under set. The kids will love it!
Also my littlest human, Ozzie, will have to go under anesthesia for a CT scan to look at a lung issue tomorrow. Any prayers or positive thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Ozzie is here! He arrived Friday the 13th. We are all doing well, 2 toddlers and a baby are quite the adjustment. He had his bris 8 days following his birth. It was a bit traumatic for me to be honest, I cried… A lot. I think it was mostly the hormones and medications making it so hard than the actual bris. Temple also plants a tree in Israel for every baby, I thought that was pretty awesome. I think I’ll get Thad and Marnie a tree on the 1 year anniversary of their conversion.
A few weeks ago I officially joined Temple. They sent this lovely welcome basket
It’s been almost a month since I have been to Shabbat at temple and I’m really missing it. Unfortunately they don’t usually do childcare during summer services since it’s a slower time at temple, and toddlers sitting through a service is a no go, so I most likely won’t be able to go for a while 😦 updates will probably be sparse here too, I’m hoping to be outside with the kiddos a ton this summer. That is if it ever stops raining here.
