We arrived in Kiribati around noontime on Thursday, June 25. Mama, Laae, Toamwane, and Melesiata were at the airport to greet us. It was very exciting to finally be here and see our family, although, I really forgot how stinking hot it is here! I wasn't across the tarmac at the airport and the sweat began dripping.
We have yet to get settled into our new home, and some of us are having some trouble adjusting, but the rain has stopped temporarily and I have had a shower. The coffee is on the way, and the boys have made a couple of friends and they found a movie to watch.
Hopefully now we will find food the boys will eat, something for us to drink, sunny weather so our laundry can dry, and space to arrange our things so we won't be in the way.
I'm looking forward to seeing the library, market, and recycling facility. We'll also look for the local school and church.
Parker really enjoys eating the papaya and bananas found here and Tanielu enjoyed the dried fish Conn brought home this morning.
Conn went and got some cabbage seedlings this morning. That will begin his garden.
Tanielu had a spell of wanting strawberries and North Carolina. He's doing better now playing with friends.
