What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

My husband's hobby - Sukkot!

In the last four years, Doug has become completely obsessed with Feast of Tabernacles.  He tries to improve and design a better sukkah every year.  It's a challenge here in northeast Michigan.  We've had rain, flooded tents, mud, "smoke" issues, freezing temperatures, flat air mattresses, etc.  And we've never had more fun!  We look forward to the day when we can keep the feast at home in Israel with warm temperatures and a sukkah made of palm branches!

Until then, we are looking forward to this year.  Here is a picture of our progressing sukkah.  The roof is now on, but I don't have a pic of that yet.




It also doubles as pioneer practice for school!

Yep - I would say that is a serious sukkah! Well if my memory serves me right, you would need a serious sukkah for Northern Michigan....I use to live near Frankfort! LOL!
