If I'm not careful, I'm going to miss our bus this morning. We are headed to the BYU Jerusalem Center on the Mount of Olives for church. We have been swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, visiting an archaelogical dig, spending precious moments at holy sites, and in between it all we have been gabbing and chatting. I'm trying to hit all of my old hang out spots in Jerusalem and even visit a couple of my old friends. Yikes-bus leaves in 10 minutes but since I have the Internet I'll leave you with my pictures and very little explanation. You'll see my family, my sisters, and even some ice creams. The good news: Heidi got her luggage. Bella got her cast-not green, but pink in a last minute decision. I saw my old friend Omar from twenty years ago. Bathrooms were locked and we had to change in the bushes for our swim in the Sea. My sister Laurie forgot to pack her bra after the swim. You might think this is bad news, but since we all laughed so hard, I'm including it as good news.
The bad news: The Quiet Man caught this wasp in our hotel room. And for really bad news, one of my sisters fell in an ancient cave and sliced her ear requiring a trip to the emergency room and a little reconstructive surgery. She's doing great but I don't want to mention which sister until she has a chance to talk to her family. The Van Gogh jokes are already starting.
