I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye"
- Peter, Paul, and Mary "Leaving On A Jet Plane"
Ben left for Israel this afternoon, on the group flight for the Yeshiva where he'll be studying this year, Torat Shraga. There were lots of crying mommies - and quite a few of us daddies were doing a very poor job of hiding it.
Hatzlacha, Ben. We'll miss you more than you can imagine. May God grant that you grow and learn and make the most of this opportunity.
L'hitraot - see you soon!
