The first week of school will start after Labor Day. Public school doesn't start until Thursday September 6. The parsha for that week is Ki Tavo in Deuteronomy. The verse I will introduce on Thursday is Deuteronomy 28:6:
Blessed will you be when you come and blessed when you go.
Baruch atah bevo'echa uvaruch atah betsetecha.
On Friday I have an appointment in the morning, so I don't think we will do playgroup that first week.
Playgroup will start on Tuesday, September 11, which will actually be M's birthday, so we will do a birthday party kickoff!
