On the left, our little Menucha. Guess she's not so little anymore. And on the right, one of her classmates. They graduated last night from the 8th grade. What a production--dance, choir, drama, the works. Here they are in the costume they wore for the choir performance, a very pretty 2-colored shawl, worn over a black shirt and skirt. During the performance, the lighting made the shawls look different colors, and of course the shiny "coins" attached to them sparkled beautifully.
They still have a few days of school left, but today they are off--the graduation ceremony ended late last night, and today they have the day off to sleep. After all their hard work, they certainly deserve it!
