Waikiki Sunset
Yesterday was another beach day! Poor Bill had to stay in the hotel for awhile in the morning to work on school, but he met us a little later at the beach. We rented surfboards for a couple hours, and then rented an outrigger canoe. Way cool!!!! It was the […]

Hanauma Bay
Yesterday was Rianne’s 14th birthday – what a place to celebrate! We decided to go snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, so we packed all our snorkel gear and headed out at about 8:30 with a quick drive-thru at McDonalds for breakfast. The McDonalds are few and far between here, so I’m […]

Happy Birthday Rianne!

Heading to Hawaii!

Have you ever had one of those “A-Ha” moments, that sort of snaps you back to reality? This morning was one of those times. I should have known, when I was tempted to skip church just because I was tired. The alarm went off, I mumbled something to Scott, to […]

A Defining Moment

Well, Day 3 was actually yesterday, but I never made it to my computer to post an update, so today is a 2 for 1 day! Yesterday started out a little iffy because we were having car trouble. But, God was good, and we were able to get the car […]

Nebraska Day 3 (and 4!)

We have a great hotel here in Nebraska – tons of room for our family. Kudos to the mom who did all the planning! The four big kids ate the free breakfast in the lobby, while I got to sleep in! Unfortunately, since I missed breakfast, I ate a couple […]
