This month has really flown by. It seems like just a few days ago I was frantically packing to come here, and now I'm packing to leave.
We've had a great visit, seen a lot of family and friends, gotten outdoors to really enjoy this magnificent corner of the world, and done enough outlet shopping to last us a while.
The kids are off gallivanting around a local theme park with my parents today while I try and gather possessions that have spent a month hurling themselves into the farthest reaches of the house (not to mention expanded into enough new stuff that I had to buy another duffel bag. I LOVE outlet shopping.). In a few minutes though I'm going to call a timeout and head down to the beach for some much needed sunshine and quiet time, and perhaps a final paddle on that beautiful blue water, before returning to tame the remaining chaos.
Tomorrow we head for home, finally arriving Thursday afternoon Israel time. After that it's just a few short days until the relentless school/work grind begins anew.
Catch you on the flip side.
