We made the trek to Kona today and got our new mattress!! This is so exciting. Although the drive was long and our adventuresome teens (who have been troopers) had to ride in the back of the truck because our van has yet to arrive. We drove through 2 1/2 hours each way of sun, wind, rain and then glorious rainbows! We also enjoyed a stop off at Hapuna Beach. Such a great place! Rated one of the best beaches in the world! I so love being in the water – swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding. The boarding is great here…I go elsewhere to snorkel.
Ben is completely on target – he has already obtained his Hawai’i drivers license and license plates for his truck. Wow! The reality of living here sinks in a bit more every time something more permanent happens. I keep reminding myself – this is not a vacation, this is our life.
Thank you Lord again for always making great provision for us! (We even finally have a new mattress!)
