So, after spending the first half of this year getting all settled into a house here on Roatan, we have moved into a different house in a totally different area of the island. Some might say it is less safe, however, we have bars on the windows and a "watchie" to help keep intruders away. This island is not known for violent crimes, but break-ins are common and expected if you are careless.
We were moved into our new house less than a week when we welcomed Eric and Tara Kendrick and their two sons as guests. So exciting to see friends from Texas and to show them the island and all that we are involved with. They were even able to bring a few extra bags full of baseball equipment that many friends from home took time to collect. Thank you, Eric and Tara for lugging all that extra baggage along with your two babies and all that is required when traveling with kids!
With only a few days to give them the grand tour, we hit the ground running and barely got them to the house from the airport before Trey and Eric took off for baseball practice. It was the hottest part of the day and I think EK forgot to put on sunscreen. But, once they got there, the kids from the colonia were so stoked to each have their own mit and a selection of bats and balls to choose from. Thank you to everyone that donated items and went out of your way to give back! These kids will thrive because of your generosity.
We hit the beach, took them on a tour of the colonia and the water project with Henry from lw4r, visited the local Honduran school in the colonia, took he baseball team swimming, went snorkeling, and ate some great food. Time flew by and we miss our dear friends.
