Shabbat dinner – behind closed doors

While the grownups were sitting around the kitchen table on Friday night, drinking homebrew and eating chinese takeout (a real treat for me, after spending the afternoon digging a garden), here’s what the kids were up to. I wouldn’t have had a clue had they not also swiped the camera.
