Happy Thanksgiving!

Brandon and I enjoyed our second Thanksgiving on the island Thursday.  We had lunch with our prep school family and then headed to the Marriott Golf Course for dinner with our church family.  It was nice, but we missed the festivities that were happening in the great state of Texas!  The countdown is on for December 27, 2010 when we will be back in the USA for Christmas!

Brandon and I are so thankful for our family and friends who love and support us! I am also extremely thankful for my wonderful husband!

Good News and Bad News

The good news is that there are NO snakes on St. Kitts.  The bad news is there are centipedes. They are extremely quick and have a painful bite.  I encountered this critter on my walk up to the apartment.  It was met by my screams for Brandon to come and get it.  Thank goodness it was not in our house!

Sunday Fun Day!

On Sunday afternoon, our friends Christy and Chris invited us to go zip lining through the rainforest with them and their brother and sister-in-law. I have been wanting to do this for some time, so we took them up on their invitation.  We had so much fun!  Here is some pictures from our rainforest adventure!

Christy and I! She teaches third and fourth grade at the prep school and I teach first and second.  She is an awesome teacher and friend!

St. Kitt's Rainbow

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.

Life's a Beach!

Sunday Brandon and I took the day off to enjoy the island.  We slept in and then enjoyed lunch at the Marriott and then headed to the beach.  Here is some pictures from our day.  We enjoyed looking for seashells and trying to snorkel!

Our New Apartment!

Here are some pictures of our new apartment and our gorgeous view.  We are so thankful for our friends Jakki and Joe for helping us find this place with such a short notice.  We will be moving out at the end of December into an apartment across from the Ross Vet School campus.  It will be much more convenient for Brandon and I to be closer to school, but we will definitely miss this place! 

Here is some pictures from our front porch.  It overlooks the golf course and the Atlantic ocean.
