Thanks so much to all of you for the well wishes for my son's journey to the US last week. He arrived safe and sound, had a great couple of days with his grandparents and is now off at sleepaway camp. No photos have been posted to the camp website yet, but I've got that refresh button working overtime. (I'm not at all worried, just excited to see how much fun he's having. Not sure how much will be posted though, since they warned me ahead of time that they don't have a very dependable internet connection out there in the bloomin' woods.)

Maya and I fly out to join him in just eight days, so things around here are kicking into overdrive as I prepare (home/work/life) to be gone for a month. If I didn't get to your blog this past week rest assured it wasn't for lack of trying and I very much appreciate all of your visits to my little island on the net. (Don't get too excited burglars, my husband will still be here and we have VERY watchful neighbors ;).)

Psst... Wondering how I ended up in Israel, and why I stay? Here's your chance to find out :).

Leaving on a jet plane

My notatallababyanymoresuddenlyhe's11 year old is at the airport as we speak, checking in for his flight to the US. It's his first time flying alone (Jay got permission to stay with him until he's at the gate, then the airline will escort him to NY, through customs, etc. there, then on to the NY-Boston shuttle until my parents meet him in Boston), he's practically vibrating he's so excited. On the agenda are one-on-one time with the grandparents, a week at sleepaway camp, and all sorts of other adventures before Maya and I join him later this month.

Gee, do you think he's happy about the idea? It's kind of hard to tell ;)...Seriously, he is SO ready for this, and his utter joy at getting to do it does a mama's heart good, even if we're going to miss him like crazy.

Still Not Dead, July 2012 edition (aka holy moley I did it!)

If you've been reading here for a while, you'll understand what a tremendous accomplishment this is...

And yes, this really is from this year. It's blooming on my island as we speak. YAY ME! (I was tempted to photograph it with the front page of today's newspaper as proof but we never buy an actual paper anymore.)

Click here to see how stunning this looks as a framed and matted print.
