Is It Cliche to Say Happy New Year on January 8th?

After 3 weeks, 4 days, 11,000+ miles, and over 24 hours flight time... we're baaaccckkk!! And strangely enough it feels pretty good to be here. Maybe it's the jet lag talking, or the flu that Sheridan caught that's kept us both housebound for the past 2 days. Either way, we're happy to be reunited with Matt and the doggie, and look forward to getting back into a routine again... at least for the next 11 weeks.

Our trip to the States was FANTASTIC - filled with visits of family and friends. As I haven't sent out any real updates, and I know it would be WAY too long to detail our last 10 days, here are some of the highlights... in pictures!

Hopefully my internet will stay connected so I can send out more frequent updates. Until next time...

By the way, Happy New Year!

December 24th ~ Rock Climbing

Sheridan did much better than last time...

Riley was a champ! She climbed to the top and rang the bell every single time!

December 25th ~ The Feller Cousins Come For a Visit

Noa, Riley, Dara, Sheridan

January 2nd - 5th ~ Off to India, by way of D.C. to Visit Friends From Oman and Israel

Friends from Oman... who we tend to visit every trip thru D.C.

Friends from Israel ... newly posted to D.C.

Virtual Sisters... Neighbors from our past 2 posts in both Oman AND Israel.
The girls have truly grown up together.
