That time of year. Back to school for the kids. Of course, I'm nervous about how they will do. They have all improved their Hebrew, but academic language is still quite difficult for them. This year more will be expected from them. They have many challenges ahead, as we all do. With G-d's help (and some tutors), they'll be okay. I'm sure you'll get to hear more on the subject as the year progresses.
As for me, I have decided that it's time to return to more full-time work. I am a speech pathologist and have worked with children for many years. In March of this year a job practically fell into my lap and I have been working about 6 hours a week. The administration of the school has asked me to expand my hours and I will be working four fairly full days a week. I'll be home by 3, in time to supervise the homework and cook dinner and be pulled in many different directions.
I'm sure you'll get to hear about that as well.
In other news, I got a 96 on my ulpan test, Ramah (level) Daled (D)--"very high". (I have no idea how The Cheater did on her test). I feel good about how my language skills are developing, although I know I have a long way to go. Joining the work force will only help in that area.
Also, my friend Gila, who will be coming over for some matzoh balls very soon, has Haveil Havalim up. She did a really good job, so go over to her blog and read through it.
It's been a really great first summer in Israel. I am sorry to see it end. I've had a chance to write alot; I'm afraid that my posting will be more infrequent now. But I still intend to read and write and comment. I really do enjoy being part of the blogging community.
So stay tuned.
