Squeezing It All In

This week has flown by, and with only one more week in Hawaii, we’re trying to squeeze it all in. Last week included stamping (and coloring) with the sweet girls in our branch. It was also our anniversary, and the girls surprised us with flowers and a shout out. We enjoyed visiting and just hanging out…and two of them asked if they could become demonstrators. Woohoo!

We hiked to the lighthouse with Tiffanee and tried a new Mexican restaurant (we’ve eaten there twice this week) and a crepe place…yummy! It was such a nice evening (windy, but nice!), and we wondered why we hadn’t made time in the evenings, during the year, to hike more often…

On our p-day, a senior missionary couple invited us to join them for breakfast and a few hours at Bellows Beach. It was beautiful and relaxing, and we finally tried boogie boarding. Aside from being thrown around a bit and getting too much sun, it was a fabulous day!

We taught our last temple preparation class on Sunday as well as spoke in church. And Monday night we were in charge of Family Home Evening, with all the senior couples, at President and Sister Warner’s home. Of course we stamped then too, but we didn’t take photos because we were pretty busy with lots of first-time stampers, including several men!

Along with my usual responsibilities, I’m spending my weekdays trying to finish my training binder for the next sister missionary who will take over after we leave. I keep thinking I’m almost done, but then something else pops into my head that I should include.

Feeling a little anxious about another busy week ahead, can someone stop (or at least slow down) the time, please?!
