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


2.   Went to the Moroccan Music Festival in Essouara, Morocco


3. Had Henna put on both hands and feet


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

6.  Celebrated Ramadan, Eid al Fitr and Eid al Adha in a Muslim country


7. Enrolled my kids in school in Arabic & French and watched them flourish with language knowledge


8.  Went swimming on the beach in October


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!
