For those of you who are wondering, Shira and the rest of Shoshana’s class is saying the “daytime” Shema prayer as part of the morning prayer service, shacharis.  Shoshana the night owl, however, is reciting part of the “bedtime” Shema, which is recited at night before we go to sleep.  Pleasant dreams, Shoshana! :P


Fact of the Day: National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is in November, and kids can join the Young Writers Program.  There is also a Camp NaNoWriMo program in April and July, so if you’re not away at real camp, writing a novel during that time might keep you busy instead! :)


PS. Do you guys want to see more facts of the day in my posts?  I’ve seen other bloggers here doing it, and I’ve learned a lot from them.
