First Day



Dave and I took Maya to school this morning. She walked right in and gave her teacher, Miss Jan, a hug. She is so excited. I was super proud of her for being so confident and that no tears were shed (by anyone ;)



She is the only American in her class. The names of her classmates are: Omar, Remi, Isla, Immanuel, Eleora, Reem, Ege, Tommaso, Cian, Simone, Mert, Kailash, Sarah, Ayushi, and Yi Pin.

Long Time...No Blog

So, it's been a great vacation so far. I've taken tons of pictures, but haven't gotten a single thing scrapbooked.

We're nearing the tail end of our time in the US, and it has been comfortable, happy, fun, familiar, appreciated, and memorable.

Here are a couple random pix.

One of the airplane screen always showing the direction of Mecca (just in case you need to go pray). It's nice to know that God is always up no matter where you are.


And here is one of the glorious flag. Everytime Maya sees one she says, "Hey, we're in the United States of America!" I try to take those moments and tell her what an awesome thing that is. Truly the flags here have been so beautiful and inspiring.
