I'm completely relaxed - all fueled up for a snow covered home, papers to grade, a birthday celebration for Jenny and ultimately the three week school run until Thanksgiving arrives. Little Miss Samantha Rose will be arriving around the same time! JOY!
My friend Tom, a fellow eighth grade teacher from my school, went to dinner with us last night. All Jeff's friends came down and we dined at the Italian restaurant that Jeff worked at his freshman year at UH. They are all so sweet and we had a delicious meal together. Tom brought me a lei! Isn't it gorgeous! Tom's staying until Saturday, so he's just beginning HIS Hawaiian fun!
Kelli sent me this picture of her neighborhood at home. She took this early in the day, but the airport is out of operation a bit, so it's good that we are flying through the night. The sun is expected in Denver on Saturday. I am filled with thankfulness for such a beautiful five days in this tropical paradise. We'll go back to the beach this morning, soak up some golden sun, float one more time in the salty, blue water, eat lunch, take another nap, stow our bags and grab a quick dinner, catch a cab to the airport and go home. Thank you so much for joining me and leaving such happy, generous comments. I have loved sharing this with you!
