Laura Beach

Surprisingly, I have not been back to the Laura end of Majuro since we first got here! It was fun to show Ron and Julie the rest of the island and have a post-Thanksgiving picnic on the beach. After lunch, we explored the beach at low tide and then flew kites with some local kids as the tide came in.

Happy Thanksgiving!

One great thing about Majuro is that we had access to everything that we needed for a normal Thanksgiving dinner! The turkey was a Butterball and the cranberries were fresh! Even though it's a ton of work, I really love making it, and it was so fun to put it together with Autumn. To make it even better, we had family here to share it with!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jambo Arts Exhibition

Today was my first Jambo Arts Exhibition. It was really great to exhibit my work, and almost everything sold! The whole event was a huge success, and I was really proud to be part of it.
