Busy, Busy, Busy

Just a few pictures of last year's 2K/5K

So sorry to have been away for so long. I had no idea homeschooling my son would keep me so busy. Also, things really pick up for us this time of year. Even though our son is not going to the school anymore, there are still activities we attend with the school because my husband and daughter are teachers there.

This Saturday, there is the annual 2K/5K that our school does. Kids 4th grade and down run a 2K, and everyone over 4th grade runs a 5K. I ran this last year, but decided not to run this year. They need a lot of help running things, so I decided to be there to help in whatever area help is needed.

The next Saturday, April 9th, we are having an "Open House" at our apartment. We are doing this because we have been so busy this school year that we have not been able to see lots of our friends since we came back to Egypt last September. It will be a good way to see friends and have a good time of fellowship.

The next weekend, the high-school and middle-school will go on a retreat. They go to a "camp" where there are lots of challenging activities. They are put into two teams and these activities teach them to work as a team. My husband, daughter and son will go on this retreat.

I don't think there is anything planned for the next weekend, but we will probably be so busy playing "catch-up" that it will be busy too.

Then the last weekend of April is a family retreat with the church we attend here. This is always a great time of being with great friends and getting to "relax" a little.

From now until the end of the school year, it is like someone pushes a "fast-forward" button, and we seem to do everything in fast motion. Another school year will be over before we know it, and our family will be heading back to the States for a while. It is always a sad/happy occasion because we have to say good-bye (for a while) to our friends here, but we get to see friends and family back home.

In the weeks to come, I'll try to post on some of the activities mentioned above. Meanwhile, keep us in your thoughts and prayers. During the next few months, we will be packing up our stuff and moving to a new apartment. So, on top of all these activities, we will be busy with this as well.

Till next time, Jackie
