26 Days in Bahrain

Eek.  May has not been good to me.  It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted and in that time I’ve spent more hours at Awali Hospital than I care count.  It started with the girls getting pink eye.  A week later, I thought I had it, only to discover that what I had was hypertension.  I suppose it’s a good thing I went in for the pink eye.

Anyway, we are more than half-way done with our 60 Days in Bahrain.  I can’t believe that we’ll be leaving in a mere 26 days.  Its not particularly real yet- there are still 17 more teaching days and we haven’t packed out yet.  Our nanny is buying a large majority of our things so we still have most of our stuff.  We have started receiving emails from our new school and that is very exciting- but that’s even farther away than this move.  I know the reality will set in soon.  There will be tears.  There will be sadness.  There have already been a few ‘last times.’  But this little project is keeping me focused on each day, allowing me to find the good, the positive in my today.

We’ve had an eventful almost-30 days and I’m going to post the photos here.  You might want to get a coffee to help get you through!  Enjoy!
