And the packages come pouring in....
29 September 2011 | Papeete, Tahiti
Thankfully, we have received 2 of the 4 packages on which we are waiting so it looks like we might be leaving Sunday or Monday for.....well, we haven't got THAT far yet!
Mark has been enjoying his first forays into the underwater world of SCUBA – what better place to learn where the water is so warm he didn't need a wetsuit and there are tropical fish everywhere! Unbeknownst to me, he has also booked an introductory dive for me tomorrow so I'll give you an update. Lochy and Mia can't wait for them to reach the minimum age so they can SCUBA too – probably after NZ during our next South Pacific season.
We've been focusing on school in the mornings – Johannes from Goody has been joining us which has helped his and our kid's attitude to school – nothing like a bit of competition! For PE, we joined Goody and Luna for a game of beach volley ball just along the road from the marina which was completely tiring for the adults – well, me anyway! Mia has been making herself another skirt and Lochy has been mastering his magic kit we bought from Jersey and have only just re-discovered. We also re-discovered our game of Cluedo I had put away because the kids were too young when we left and we had a fun evening, once Lochy learnt not to say for example, “So, it's not the candlestick then” every time he saw a card! Mia asked if we could play it every night, but I'm not sure Mark and my patience could last for much longer than once a month! At least it wasn't monopoly. No thank you, we don't need monopoly on the boat – perish the thought!
