Today Yahel and I came to talking about the idea of the kibbutz. He didn't know what a kibbutz was, so I explained the concept in a nutshell: the members work as a collective, people work as much as they can, all the wealth is divided equally, there is virtually no private property, etc. The kid (who is not 7 yet) thought for a second and concluded: nobody will be willing to work.

And now to the solution of the reverse V sign riddle. Turns out this is the proper way to request permission to go to the bathroom during class. Nobody in LJ guessed it, but my boss knew it immediately when asked yesterday during lunch break. How he knew, beats me.

Suppose you're a school kid living in Kfar Yona (not Winston Churchill), what does this sign mean to you? Hint: victory has nothing to do with it. Correct replies will be screened until tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning Yahel goes to first grade. How time flies...

Yahel: !תפסיק לגעת במשאית שלי
Shachar: отъебись!

Yahel has got a new illustrated kids' atlas.

Should I feel personally offended? ;-)

I try to explain current politics to Yahel:
Me: You know, some people are not happy with our prime minister. They think that he wasn't good enough during the war in the summer, and he needs to be replaced.
Yahel: They want Ariel Sharon to be prime minister?
Me: No, Ariel Sharon is sick at the hospital. He cannot be prime minister. Do you know anyone else who can be prime minister instead of Ehud Olmert?
Yahel: (no hesitation) You!

Yahel is talking to his friend Romi, both are 6 year olds.
Y: Guess what was my costume for Purim?
R: I don't know. What was it?
Y: *giving her a hint* Go back 50 years ...

I've got some kind of a connectivity problem between my cellphone and my PC. That's why some pictures appear here quite late. Well, what the heck, better late than never.

Here are a few late adders from our trip to the Hermon two months ago.

I never knew that orthodox Jews also go skiing, and in their everyday outfit too.

Another traveling bear project, a bit more artistic than the one we took part in :)

One of the older instructors told us a story about her daughter, a school student who is also a K.A.M.I. practitioner. There was one kid who constantly bullied her at school, and she always held back. One day the girl lost her patience, and punched the other kid in the face. The kid got badly bruised. Surely enough, she was brought before the principal who asked her "why did you hit him in the nose"? The girl calmly answered "because it's a pressure point".

Yahel, skiing for the first time in his life, last Tuesday on the Hermon. Boy, was he excited. I couldn't get him out of that place until they closed down the lifts at quarter to four. Next time - Aspen Colorado ;)

I am at work, and the phone starts ringing. It's Yahel. "Dad, I have a tummy ache, please come and pick me up from kindergarten". I look at the caller-id and it shows my home number. "But you are already at home, aren't you"? Yes he is. The missus took him home early. It's a joke. Very funny.

On Friday Yahel and I filled out a lotto ticket together. I chose six numbers, and he chose another six (2 "cells" altogether). After sending in the ticket I glanced through the numbers. It turned out that his guesses were almost identical to mine. I don't know if he did it on purpose or not, but the fact was that we hardly differed. I wonder, suppose we had filled the exact same numbers, and won the first prize, would we take two shares among the winning tickets, or just one?
