I live close to a pre-K, so I took these photos on Friday morning when the children were arriving in costume for their Purim party.
I love the expression on this little girl’s face. She wasn’t scowling at me. She was squinting in the sun and had her tongue out the side of her mouth at the same time.
There are always lots of brides. I’m surprised that this one turned out, considering I was 2 stories above her and she was walking behind a fence.
Snow White and Noah, with a foam ark over his shoulder (it looks like a shoulder bag but it has “Noah’s Ark” written on the side).
Older children, on their way to school.
One of the requirements of the holiday is to give at least two items of food to a friend. That’s why this little girl in pink is carrying a basket of sweets.
In the middle of the morning, when there’s no traffic on the streets, the pre-K children, the teacher and her assistant go into the street for one quick song and dance in a circle. I wasn’t able to photograph them in a circle because the trees in the garden between my building and the street have grown so big, so I ran downstairs to take a few photos.
