We built a different succah this year. I love this one, it's neat, it's easy to put together as evidenced by the photo below and it stands up straight as a succah should. But I do kind of miss the slightly lopsided and extra-heavy succah we have an home, the one my kids painted. I'm going to have to figure out how to reconcile my love of going away to the country for holidays with my love of my homemade-ish succah that is way too big to pack into the van and bring upstate.
Okay. I think I'm reconciled. I looked at this year's succah pictures thus far, and I have to say, being able to build a succah, any succah, on a deck right off the dining room beats any nostalgia I feel for our other succah. And so for my brother, who has an awesome succah of his own this year, I say, behold, the building* of the First Annual Presidential Sukkah.
And now behold, the first bug in the First Annual Presidential Succah. Notice I don't say first annual bug. He's not welcome to come back next year.
*I only say the 'building of'. We don't have any actual 'sitting in' pictures yet. It needs to stop raining for more than three minutes first.
Chag Samayach and Happy Succot!
