Early this morning, Mom and Dad packed up their things and headed off to the airport. They're going back to Israel for another year of work and study. It was nice to have them here for a good long visit, but we will be missing them in days ahead.
While Mom and Dad were here, we did a lot of visiting with friends. Mom and Dad got to meet the two granddaughters that had been born while they were away. Mom took lots of photos and videos of her children and grandchildren. Perhaps we'll see a few of them on her blog in coming weeks?
Last Saturday, we headed over to James and Hayley's new house for a psalm sing/housewarming party. It was nice to attend a psalm sing that I didn't have to host! Not that I mind hosting, I enjoy it actually, but it's also nice to have a break now and then.
We sang two selections. The second tune, Palestrina, is one of my favorites.
Psalm 30:1-5 to St. Minver
Psalm 86:14-17 to Palestrina.
