So sad

After threatening us for months that they were going, the AP's took of to Israel for six months of learning. Saturday night was the official godobye party, the Natalie shed a few tears, just thinking about them leaving, Adina cried when we left, hoping that we all dont forget them in the next six month, Jonah cried, possibly because his girlfriend is leaving, or just maybe he had a dirty diaper.

When you look at the big picture, they arent going away for that long, basically they are taking a big vacation, thy will have a local phone number, and a webcam, so its not liek we'll go 6 mos, without seeing or talking to them. As Tom Cruise says in A Few Good Men " Six month is nothing..its a Hockey season" (Obviously that movie wasnt talking about this season, which doesnt exsist)

I'm not saying its not sad that they are gone. because it is sad , thats 24 Tuesdays night basketball games he'll miss, some shabbos meals, fun times and all that good stuff, but they will be back.

The question is will they come back the same or will Israel change AP the way it has changed so many of my friends? Only time will tell on that one. Aaron doenst think he will change
"you cant teach an old dog new tricks" but these Yeshivas specialize in brainwashing,

Of course even sad things have some good that come out of it, and in thh case of the Pergie's leaving town, its that they were kind nough to lend us their car for the duration of teir trip, and Jonah has a new (for him) baby einstein toy to play with.

In closing, iu would like t wish the AP'S all the luck in the world, I hope Israel is a good experience for them, but that they come back home, as they promised,

Why should they go back? Aren't you a zionist pig? Don't you need friend's here for when your wife convinces you enough eating Jonah's spit-up, we're off to Israel?

I heard that as part of the brainwashing process they make you give up basketball.
