Photo Friday: I hope my girls look back at their childhoods in Israel and remember them fondly. I remember my childhood quite fondly, although it was so different from the way my girls are growing up. I think they will remember the quaint village of Neve Tzedek where we live, the beach near by that we use as our playground, the nice neighbors we have who say hi to us every day and invite us for holiday meals, walking most places in the hot sun, playing and riding their bikes at the Susan Dalal Center, trips to the desert and camel rides, sand storms that turn the sky orange, our travels in the region, their international friends and the yummy and organic food that we eat.
