This afternoon we played with the goats some more. Got to know them and our responsibilities a lot more, although there is still a whole other lesson on milking and then of course how to make the yogurt and chevre.
After that we had what I will call “trust fall afternoon” but did not involve trust falls. We had several blindfolded activities where we were partnered up or working as a whole group. And while things like that can theoretically be cheesey, these were ridiculously fun. Everyone was so into them. We all worked so well together. It was easily the most “light” we’ve been since we’ve gotten here, and I could tell on all of our faces that we all had really positive experiences doing those activities together.
Anyway, there has been SO much in such a short amount of time. But I would say that I’m already starting to feel more settled. I can’t wait for Shavuot on Thursday night (2 night holiday followed immediately by Shabbat). It’ll be great to finish the basic orientation activities, then have a long break, with fantastic prayer and learning, and then start fresh on Sunday with our activities.
