|With my family at the Western Wall|
While I had been recently in May to co-lead a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, it was my first time back in Israel on vacation in three years. While the weather was mild and only slightly chilly (okay, it was good weather), I, unfortunately, got sick on one of the flights there. I then spent the rest of the trip trying to recover.
Nevertheless, it was nice to be there and reconnect with the land, with some family, and bumping into other folks there. Of course, it was also great to have our girls have such an experience and, for the older ones, hopefully remember their trip.
