Yesterday, we were starting the amidah. On the first word of the first brachah, one bends one's knees, and on the second word one bows. Eli made it a little fancier. He bent his knees then, instead of bowing, he did a full somersault and sailed back up onto his feet. It was very, very, very funny and I think it will take us a long time to recover our decorum. Today, the amidah was a bit, well, wiggily.
