It has been a long time since I have blogged here. I guess life got a bit too humdrum and boring in some ways, though not in others. We moved to Orem, into a wonderful house, but have had 10 floods/leaks in 7 months and it seems we never quit doing emergency work on the house so we can do other things. The kids keep getting bigger and better. Life goes well in so many ways. I will try, every now and then, to write about some of the things I have not recorded here.
But for now, lets talk about Egypt. It is my first night back in the country since about 9 months ago. It is good to be back. After some delayed flights, too many hours traveling, and two lost bags, four of us are here. Tomorrow we begin meeting with the Ministry of State for Antiquities people so that we can start the excavatoin season. While it seems like it has been a long time since we were here (9 months), in some ways when we get here it seems like we have never left.
Here we go!!
