Wednesdays are special because public schools get out an hour early. In this house, that means Mr A is home early and it's a perfect day for relaxing in the Hawaiian sunshine!
We try to make it a habit to hit the beach midweek, since God and the DOE made time available for such things.
Yesterday was simply delightful. The sky was clear, the water was warm, and we even brought a snack to munch on. Mr A and I peppered with the volleyball, Ikaika dug in the sand, and all 3 of us took a dip in the ocean.
It was one of those moments where I look around and am reminded of why we chose to live here. For how difficult the move was and how much we have struggled to make it work, days like yesterday remind me that living in a place you love and having a way to let go of stress is worth it's weight in gold.
