Here in Los Angeles it's been so hot that a wish for shorter days and cooler temperatures is on all our minds. A nice way to celebrate ( long for ) the coming fall is to honor Sukkot and building a sukkah with the kids at the Waverly school in Pasadena. We built one last year as well . Sharing a meal (snack) with friends in a beautiful setting is always a good way to celebrate.
This year the 1st and 2nd grade class created watercolor paintings of fruits and vegetables, which I turned into a garland to decorate the sukkah.
They happily ate apples, grapes and pumpkins seeds turned into a salad.
