A week in Israel. I had a great business trip! We had an offsite event for 2 days in a beautiful hotel in the middle of Negev desert in Israel. This event was organized incredibly well and was a lifetime experience, especially some fun parts like a dancing party late at night in the desert. The last 3 days in the office were a whirlwind of meetings, but it was good to see my coworkers and friends face to face again.


Water Mouse. In the meantime, Anna had a great week with her father. Every day they spent 3 hours at the pool, and I was very amused to see how tanned she got despite sunscreen that papa applied diligently but only before leaving house. Swim classes are going well, and Anna swims more and more confidently. We expect she will be a fully independent swimmer by the end of this summer.


Quote of the week. Mama, I am so glad you came back safe and sound, and all in one piece... I am your tail, your fluffy long tail that follows you even when you go on business trips. And I will always be your tail, and also I will be part of our family tale, because I am your daughter, and I will continue our tale even when you die.
