Barak and Abba were drawing pictures at the kitchen table while I was dishing out supper. Barak got a big piece of Abba's bristol board and drew a big bus for the Torah Team. Then I saw him frowning and scowling a lot.
"I'm trying to write 'stop' but I don't know how."
"I can tell you the letters, OK? First write an S."
[frowning and scowling]
"Then a T, like tree. Then an O. Then a P."
A minute later, he held it up. "Is that stop?"
And it was! The S was backward, but otherwise, he'd written STOP.
First written word!
