This past Shabbat, we were sitting around the dining room table enjoying the delicious foods I had cooked based on everyone’s specific preferences. Roasted asparagus for my oldest, pumpkin muffins for my son, and cauliflower for his twin sister, just to name a few. Conversations ensued, expected fights amongst the kids broke out, and laughter and giggles over the silliest things filled the room.
So it’s been 7 ½ months since we moved to Israel and let’s call a spade a spade. I’ve pretty much been on vacation since we got here. Well, I have been extremely busy with life- wife, mother, household, volunteering, blogging…but I haven’t needed to answer to anyone, i.e. a boss. No one is demanding that I get into the office by 8am. I am on my own schedule- at least just for this year. And I am so grateful that I have had this opportunity to really acclimate the family to life in a new country.
