It's been quite a while since my last post and, while I've wanted to do an update, I just haven't had the time...until now!
Since my last blog post, my sweet sister Elisheva Shalom was born! I honestly keep trying to wrap my mind around the fact that Elisheva is already three months old; this time goes by so fast.
In current time, my whole family is in preparation for upcoming Ulpan (Hebrew class) with Brayden Waller. Ulpan starts on Monday (the 9th) and will last for five weeks. We are all very excited to have the opportunity to learn the language of Hashem and to learn His heart though reading His words (Torah) in His set-apart language. Another thing I really look forward to is being able to pray to Hashem in the language that He speaks.
After Ulpan, we have a very short amount of time together before Dad and Gregory leave for pruning in Israel. I am so very excited that my brother has the opportunity to go, serve, and share in this amazing, life changing experience.
Okay, so before I conclude this (short) blog post, I would like to ask a question, or rather for an opinion. For my birthday this year my parents bought me a hope chest. I currently have in it a few things from my childhood, some things that my grandparents have passed down, and a large blanket that I crocheted last year. I also have a short list of things I would like to make to put in it. Now for the question, I would love to hear other peoples ideas for things I should make to put in my hope chest or maybe things that they are making to put in theirs. Craft wise, I crochet and sew. Thanks so much!
