So, we just got back from a trip to the US and a lot of people made comments to us that we don't update our blog anymore. So here we go. We'll really try to write more often and keep everyone up-to-date on what is going on in our lives and stories that you may or may not find interesting. So, here is an update of things that have happened since our last post:

-We survived the winter with not too much complaining. Or at least Jason didn't complain much.
-We enjoyed a month-long visit from Marty, Jason's brother. It was fun to see him and show him our lives.
-We celebrated Hiba's first birthday. We had a fun party with lots of our friends and a few of hers.
-We got to go to the beach and the zoo with some of our Palestinian friends while they had passes into Israel for Easter.
-We survived a visit by the Pope to Bethlehem. Surviving meaning dealing with all the road closures, etc. that came with his visit. I had every intention of making it to Manger Square to see him, but it was really hot the day he came, so I didn't.
-We made it out of the country with no problems to go home at the end of May for Sarah's brother's wedding.
-We enjoyed a great, but fast, visit to the US. Two weeks is not enough time to see everyone we wanted to see. We did manage to eat a lot of great food and visit Wal-Mart several times though.
-We survived two loooong plane rides with Hiba, who is probably the world's best traveler. She is wonderful and we actually even had a little bit of fun with her on the planes.
-We picked up another housemate (Sarah's sister, Rachel) for the summer while we were in the US.
-We got into the country with practically no problems and are gearing up for the busy, busy summer.
-We found a new house and will be moving at the beginning of next week.

I think that about covers the highlights. So, we'll write more soon now that you're all caught up on our life.
