My Big Guy's Award


Our Big Guy won an award last week for creating an excellent chart illustrating the power of counting by "10's". When the principal asked him to explain his work, our Big Guy was articulate, confident and amazing! :)

Love you and proud of you!

A Few More...

Had to throw these up here. These shots (all void of human interest) really captured the beauty of the place. Miss it so much already.

Paradise

This trip took almost 2 years of planning, 8 years of wishing, and 1 set of parents to go on a mission and leave their time-share behind - and it was absolutely fabulous! We loved being there with Shayne and Lea.

Every morning we ate breakfast on our balcony with stunning views, we packed lunches with camelbacks for daily hikes to waterfalls, got bitten by a million mosquitoes, saw dolphins 2 feet in front of us, discovered hidden pools for lap swimming, snorkeled daily with Swedish goggles :), went on bike rides, swallowed mountain-loads of shaved ice, kicked up amazing waves, ate at the world-famous Puka-Dogs (twice!), and got a tattoo!!

We were a crazy lot.

(don't miss the last picture. My favorite by far.)
