The summer has flown by, and the little Goofs have had so many adventures - with more coming. But between the power outage and a little getaway for MamaGoof & I we've been a bit busy I haven't even finished discussing their school year.
School is out, and GoofBoy closed out the year with a tour de force. He and a friend wrote their own version of the Torah – in Hebrew! He ran out of time and couldn’t do the whole thing, so he focused on Exodus. He spent a great deal of time updating the plagues. There were only five plagues, because for the fifth plague Snooki and Jersey Shore came to Egypt and Pharoah relented immediately. He explained that this was why the Israelites wandered in the Sinai for 40 years - Snooki was getting a tan.
Biblical Hebrew does not have a word for Jersey Shore, or Snooki. He rehearsed his presentation for me (he insists on doing this even though he knows I don’t know Hebrew.) But it was odd to hear the Holy Language punctuated occasionally with the word “Snooki.”
He also worked with friends to create this extensive PowerPoint presentation. Which leaves me with a single profound question: what are they doing with my tuition money?
