Ragamuffin Parade

The first Saturday of every October is the Bay Ridge Ragamuffin Parade. It is an opportunity for the kids in the neighborhood to dress up and parade down the street. Jolee was a flapper, Shayna was a New York Giants football player, and Nanda, a friend of the girls from Cool School, their after-school program, was a princess.

We had gorgeous weather in Brooklyn this weekend and Shayna had two birthday parties. The Yankees clinched the division title by beating Boston in one of the three games they played. Today we worked at the Bay Ridge Jewish Center table at the Third Avenue Festival. The girls loved passing out balloons and giving apples and honey to passers-by in honor of the upcoming Jewish New Year.
