Memories of Grenada

Schools compete together for this event. This year they memorized John 4.
tea time cookies and Glup, (Grenadian "Kool-Aid)...they know our children well:)
years of dedicated service as school administrator
.....and after the school's program, complete with so many good-byes that I didn't think I could handle another one, plus a few final moments with dear friends, we headed home. It was a strange feeling going to bed for the "last" time in Grenada. Kinda like reading the last chapter in a book and knowing after this, there will be a different book....and wondering what for adventures that book will hold:)
Sometimes this day seemed light years away and the next time it seemed to be coming so fast I could almost panic. The last few weeks seemed to go very fast as we were kept busy wrapping things up and handing the torch on to the next people. All of a sudden "this day" was upon us. I can only think of one word to explain how I felt...surreal. Well, and sad...the reality hit as we took off. So many dear friends made on this island. Well, and excited....to see friends and family back home:)
and the pilots were so nice and explained all kinds of stuff about the control panel to him.
So how is the adjusting going? I never quite know how to answer this question. For the most part it is going well. However, it is a process and I don't feel we're quite "there" yet. We are back in our same house which we had rented out while we were gone. I think that helps with things seeming more normal than if we had to adjust to a new home and area.
On the downside, right before we left Grenada alot of people around us were getting Zika and we were quite happy we managed to make our escape before it hit our household. Or so we thought. We weren't home long before we realized we brought home more than our luggage. Everyone ended up getting it except for Carter & I. There were also some challenging days for Chris as he worked out the glitches in his "new" (old) truck while his body had some zika-related "glitches." Seems to be going better now, PTL!
It's been really good to reconnect with friends and family again. Makes me appreciate and treasure them like I never did before:) God is good! All the time!
