Today is Liat's birthday on the לועזי ["lohahzi"--secular] calendar. She is 15 years old, Thank G-d. We acknowledged the day, but since it is a fast day, we will celebrate her birthday (and Orli's because she was in camp for her big day) on Chol Hamoed Sukkot, her Hebrew birthday.

The phone has been ringing off the hook as Liat's friends from America keep calling her to say hello. And I distinctly heard Liat say that even though school was really, really hard, she really, really liked it.

And I am really, really hopeful that, with G-d's help, she will have a really, really good year.

Really, really.

Happy Birthday, Liat.

I'm so glad Liat has an upbeat attitude. We are currently struggling with First Grade. No signs of saying she likes it. But she does like her friends.

My middle son has a birthday on Erev Yom Kippur. Not sure what we will do, other than bring a pizza to his art class on Monday (it's only the teacher, his good buddy, and him in the class).

I really really want to wish Liat a really really happy birthday. (And to Orli as well. Really.)
