Celebrating the 4th of July on the 7th of July

For many of our volunteers and staff, we spend the majority of the summer in Israel working on the dig. Some supervisors are away as long as 2 months!  They spend time preparing the dig sites, setting up a game plan of what they would like to dig, dig, then get everything put away and stored so they can study it when they go home.

To feel like home for a little bit, one of the girls who comes along on our dig every year (her dad is the dig coordinator) plans a 4th of July party! We had a great time playing cards by the pool, eating cookies, and relaxing. It was great after our long day digging!
