Checks off of My Bucket List

04 Dec

So, I’ve officially become a pinterest addict.  But, today as I was pinning to my “Bucket List” board all the places I want to go, I realized I’ve done quite a bit since June that can be checks off of my Bucket List.  I also realized that I haven’t posted here in awhile, and that I’ve been really bad about posting good pictures here.  So, here are some checks – with pictures for you too!

1.  Took my kids to the monuments in Washington DC

4.  Lived at my mother in law’s “traditional” Moroccan home for a week – complete with Turkish bathroom and bucket shower

5.  Went to Rabat, Morocco – visited the King’s Tomb, the City Walls, and the Ruins of an Ancient City

9.  Eaten a ton of yummy, amazing foods – including fresh fruits, veggies, yummy cakes, lots of croissants, tea, bread, mortadella and La Vache Kiri

10.  Successfully lived and taught in a country where I don’t speak the language (although I am learning quick and I have the best translator in town!)

    Dear Ms.Raki,

    Wow, I’m impressed! That is a ton of stuff to cross off. I get my report card on the 22nd and I cant wait! I was on the Principals List last time and the trip we took was awesome. Well, I miss you sooooooooo much and cant wait until you visit (which I hope is soon!) I love you and keep in touch!

    Love,
    Gracie
