We made it!

We finally made it to Roatan for the second leg of our journey here in Roatan, Honduras!
After preparing our home in Crystal Beach to be a rental again, a very long and tedious task with four children under foot, I might add, we spent the night with our dear friends, the Ashtons, and headed out to the airport first thing Sunday morning; escorted by non other than Uncle James.  Little Laney was not a happy camper on the plane, thank God it was half empty! Definitely recommend flying in to Roatan on a Sunday.
Our friends, Jeremy, Melissa and the boys and Henry and Frances met us and picked us up at the airport.  So great to see our friends on the island, it has been way too long!  Melissa prepared dinner and breakfast for us so that we did not have to worry about stocking the pantry just yet.  It has been interesting watching the kids amist all this change and honestly they are reacting as any kids would, asking lots of questions, "when can we go to the beach?, what can we eat?, do I have to take a cold shower?"  We did finally decide that while warming water to wash dishes, we would go ahead and fill a wash tub for the two little ones to bathe in, they were so excited!  Anna and Wiley were not amused.   
First thing Monday morning, we were off with lists in hand that we conquered through various markets and little side vendors.  Trey spent Tuesday with Jeremy and hit all the local spots to introduce us to some of the newer owners of shops and members of rChurch.  Wednesday and Thursday were spent picking up things we missed on our shopping excursion Monday, meeting with the plumber to try and fix the hot water, trying to track down our container with all of our things (which has most of our clothes and swimsuits in it, so we are washing clothes everyday and will look like street people at church on Sunday; gotta love island life!)
We are hoping to make it to the colonia today to say hi and see what needs to be done around there; Anna has been begging to go see her old friends at the colonia, she has such a great heart.
Well, just wanted to let everyone know that we made it and we will blog as the internet permits; it is not very reliable right now and evidently has not been working well lately on this end of the island.
Take Care and God Bless,
