And the star of the show!!

Jack Hurckes was definitely the best part of the USA! I hope no one is offended, I had a wonderful time with my parents, sister, brother-in-law, ROI, and other family. But this little boy is just too much cute in one little bundle. He is so so perfect and he makes leaving the US almost unbearable! I can't wait to see you next time Jack, I love you!! 

One month in the USA

My month in the US was amazing!! So amazing that I didn't have time to blog.  We went to Yellowstone, which was unreal! It is beyond beautiful. We saw deer, elk, buffalo, birds, geysers, etc..but no bear =(
We drove through Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and there was a great Andy Warhol exhibit. Who knew he did a print of Golda Meir?? Not me!!  

And we saw Mount Rushmore! 

Steam at Yellowstone! It was very impressive at first, then you see it everywhere. Which, then, becomes less impressive. 

The first elk we saw. 

The falls. Gorgeous.

Grand Prism in Yellowstone, this thing doesn't seen real.

On the way home we sent to St. Louis and the Budweiser brewery. And also to Springfield, IL to the awesome Lincoln museum there. =)

It was such a great summer...and now I'm back in JERUSALEM!!!!

Fun with the Hurckes'!

Katie, Rick, and Jack got home from their Colorado vacation and I have been with them ever since!! I got to babysit Jack yesterday. He is beyond perfect. He is talking and running, he's so amazing! Today Katie and I did tons of shopping and then had dinner with Aunt Gail, Grandpa Al, and Grandma Rina. It was really a wonderful day!

I also had a Hebrew lesson this morning with Ulpan Or on Skype, it's really interesting, but I am looking forward to more lessons. It's really listening based lessons, and that's hard for me, so I think it'll be really beneficial!

Tomorrow ROI is arriving in CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
