Today September 1th Yael (13) and Sarai (15) went back to school! They had vacation from June 20th and 10 weeks was really enough for me :) Their school started uniforms (just a Tshirt or hoodie with the schoollogo in any color the kids want) for the first time this year and they were really excited!
More good news is a new Ikea on the way! Until last year the only Ikea store in Israel was in Netaniya, a one hour plus drive from here. Last year a new second store opened but in Rishon le Zion which is even further away and a one and a half hour drive! But now...they started the building of a THIRD store and guess where? In the North! Five miles from where I live hehehehehe. It will be opened in 2012!
