Tuesday, June 23


so, it's been kind of a whirlwind since we've been back. here is what has happened in the last 12 days....

-we finished packing up our old apartment.
-jason, saleem, and rachel (along with some other volunteers) ran a one-day camp for over 100 kids from Bethlehem
-jason, saleem, and rachel worked at a summer camp in ramallah
-we moved into our new apartment
-we un-decorated our new apartment
-we have attempted to decorate our new apartment
-we (meaning mostly me and rachel) consolidated all of our landlords' things into a couple closets, including, but not limited to, clothes, blankets, pillows, decorations, marriage licenses ... you know, things like that.
-we (mostly me and hiba) unpacked our things and cleaned our new apartment
-jason and rachel spent a couple of days gathering tools and such to get ready for this week
-paidia welcomed a group of 10 volunteers who are here for about 10 days and are currently helping to finish the climbing tower
-i totally re-arranged the group's itinerary as soon as they got here since they were delayed by about 24 hours getting here and are leaving about a day earlier than we originally thought

i think that's all. i mean, apart from normal life things. i'm hoping to put up pictures of our new apartment in the next couple of days...i know you are all dying to see what it looks like. but for now, i'm going to sit on the couch, watch a movie, and probably fall asleep.
