Here's a recap of the last few days. Photos coming in another week or so.
On Tue, Dec 06 a friend threw a going away party for us. It was wonderful to see so many of our family and friends. We appreciate people who made the trek and took time during this already busy season to spend time with us.
We were up by 6:00am on Wednesday morning to do the last minute jobs. We've been surviving on four to six hours of sleep a night for some time and still there was so much to do. In fact, we worked literally all night Wed night. Abraham went to bed about 12:30 and Solomon at 2:00am. We got them up again at 4:00am to mop, take out bags of garbage and thrift store donations, and get suitcases in the car. Then off to the airport at 6:30am. Needless to say, we all got a bit of sleep on the plane. It was 81 degrees when we landed in Honolulu. That felt good!
We got to Hilo yesterday evening. Maxine (Robert's sister) had already stocked the rental house with food, sundries, and bedding. It was wonderful to be pampered!
Today we've run errands and tried to get a little bit organized. We met our landlord and made this library stop to get internet access.
Thanks again to everybody who has helped us along the way. We love you!
