We woke up this morning to an announcement about the earthquake that happened on Kona, (the big Island) effecting many of the Islands!
We’re still at sea, uneffected by it. We have been at sea since last night at 6pm and we’ll be at sea all day tomorrow as well. So far we’ll be ok to dock in Kona, Hawaii on Tuesday. We’re watching the news closely. The sea is a bit rougher today. It’s overcast and raining. Everyone is stuck inside. Dave is singing at the talent show – I think that’s either tomorrow or Tuesday. He’s singing the song he sang to me on our wedding day, “I will be here” by Stephen Curtis Chapman. The band leader has to learn the song to be able to accompany him.
We’ll keep you informed as to what will happen with us for docking this big ship, not sure if we’ll be deverted to another Island or what.
Being at sea for so long, I have lost track of time. When we were on Fanning Island (where a lot of scenes for Gilligan’s Island were filmed) yesterday it was today already… we crossed the International Date Line. I didn’t realize that it is already the 15th!! That means that today back at home my oldest is celebrating his birthday.
Happy 8th birthday Q!!!
He arrived 2 weeks early and was still 8lbs 1oz (my smallest baby). God gave you to us, He promised us a little boy who was full of wisdom and that’s what you are! I’ll do a full blog just for you. I tried to call but being in the middle of the ocean – we can’t get any signal. I love you Q.
I love you kids and miss you all lots. We’ll do a family cruise soon, Nana is all for doing a whole family one soon – all the kids and all the grandchildren – all at once!!
I’ll keep working on her… 😉
