Eventually I'd like to get to the point were I can blog just about something funny that has happened but in the meantime these quick updates aren't half bad, huh?
Well, we are here! Living in our condo and settling into our new life. It's great here, so far. I don't think it's hit us really just how far away we are. Or that this isn't some between semesters vacation... But slowly but surely things are settling down and we are finding out groove.
Kona is turning out to be a really great place for families! It's a very ohana friendly community with many, many activities that are free to families (the pool is free here, activities every Friday geared towards 0-3 year olds, to name a couple). I get stopped in every store at least 3 times by people wanting to make friends with sweet little Nora. They just adore her! And she adores them, too! Especially the old men and women.
Last week we drove to the other side of the island to pick up our car from the port (since we shipped it). We decided to make a day of the trip and stopped at a few places along the wa y. Instead of turning around and going home the way we came, too, we continued forward and made a big loop. We were able to stop at Volcano and see a little bit of our backyard up close. It really wetted our appetites to get back and explore some more. We live in such a beautiful state!
I will say this much though... As dream-worthy as this move has been it is hard to leave Idaho and that life behind us... I definitely could not do it without these two by my side!
