So many things

First: As you can see, I'm experimenting with a new look and name for the blog. I would really love your feedback! Feel free to tell me what you like as well as what you don't like.

Second: A huge piece of my heart just walked out the door to catch a plane to New York. I'm so proud of my girl and excited for the opportunity she has to attend a special camp at Skidmore College during the next three weeks, but the letting-gos are always a little hard on a momma's heart.

Third: Yesterday morning, I published the third Geography Explorer book, Explore Thailand. If you have a kid in your life who might be interested in that part of the world, check it out.

Fourth: Yesterday afternoon, we continued our explorations of the island. We visited the Hanapepe swinging bridge and Glass Beach, which is partly made up of a huge deposit of sea glass. We also popped into the Kauai Chocolate shop, before boarding our Napali Coast tour boat. We spent several lovely hours cruising around the island and taking in the stunning scenery of the Napali Coast. We also had appetizers, drinks, and dinner aboard the boat, and ended our tour with an amazing Kauai sunset.

Can you guess why they call this Kong Point?

There are two sea caves at the base of the brown mountain in the center.
These were created by lava tubes, and they are constantly growing.

  1. These photos are stunning! I am behind on reading all of your blogs but just caught up! Will be praying for an awesome time for Ruth. That must be a weird feeling with her going on her own to do something so "grown up!" I can't wait to hear how camp goes and how you go without her. The blog looks beautiful, btw!

    AND>>> I haven't forgotten to leave a review of your China book. Our school term ends after one more week and we have been so busy with school work and extra curricular activities and church that we haven't had time to go through it properly. Planning to on school holidays!!! Love ya!

    1. Thanks, Stacy! No worries about the book review. I understand how crazy life is.
