Last year Matan turned 2 after being home for only two months. It was too early for even a low key birthday party. This year was different. He has been in pre-school (gan) since September and has seen several birthday parties celebrated for other children in his class. He knew the moves, and his teachers reported that not only did he fully participate, he actually participated more maturely than many of his peers in class. Here are some photos from gan. Parent’s aren’t allowed to attend, so one of the teachers took all the photos.
