Meitar's Amphi was full of life yesterday evening, with a "Happening" to showcase some of the extracurricular activities that will be offered in the new school year that starts tomorrow.
A judo student threw his instructor to the mat seemingly effortlessly.
He is on just one leg in the photo!
Ah, and here are the karate kids.
My grandson Dean might join them; he is already very advanced in karate.
Did I ever tell you why I moved here?
My Naomi and her family will be coming from Australia to live in Meitar from October to April! Guy got a sabbatical. For seven months my three grandkids will be living only one kilometer away!
Look how these acrobatics girls lifted the younger ones!
Several dance groups performed on stage.
These three dancers came to stand in front of where I was sitting on the lush grass so they could see the other groups.
I couldn't resist taking a picture.
(Update: I should explain that all the girls in a certain dance wore a protective knee pad on one leg because there was a lot of kneeling on one knee.)
Even little kids are learning the movements of capoeira.
It is quite amazing what kids can learn here in little Meitar, in the Negev desert, in the middle of nowhere.
One of the several youth movements active in the community gave a final cheer off to the side.
Even the dogs were happy as everyone headed home.
Nice ambiance in the amphitheater.
