Stuff is different in Grenada....

Including the fruit! Lemons are lumpy, limes are large and look like lemons, in fact, i can't tell the difference between any citrus fruits. Imagine my surprise when I cut in to this watermelon....


It was so tasty though! :)

Happy Easter!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Here's our little guy in his adorable outfit with his bunnies :) He's two months old now and I have no idea where the time went! We had a great Easter, including a potluck brunch with some of Todd's classmates. It was a lot of fun!

Todd's Northumbria Graduation

On Saturday, Todd and his classmates went to their graduation from their first year of medical school at Northumbria Univeristy in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It was fun seeing some of the faculty members from their program come to Grenada for the event. It was a fun and well deserved day for Todd and his classmates. This was a big day for all of them, and for the school, as this is the charter class of the Global Scholars program through SGU. They actually ended up with better GPA's than the regular class at SGU! :) Todd did such a great job last year in school and I am so proud of my grad! :)

Here's a pic of Todd on his campus


Here's a pic of the whole class.

Our house :)

Our house in Grenada is great and we love living right next door to our close friends! I thought I'd post some pics to give you somewhat of an idea of where we live. OK I PROMISE I will start posting these more regularly :) At least once a week.... with pictures! Maybe we'll even take a video or two and put them on here! Well, maybe I'm getting carried away. haha. Anyway, hope you all are doing well and miss you guys!

Here's a picture of the entrance to our portion of the house.


Here's our front yard


Here's the back yard


Living room




The bedrooms are a mess! Otherwise I would have posted pictures of those too... hehe

And here's a pic of my adorable little guy at 7 weeks! I can't believe it's been 7 weeks already :) This is what happens when you have too much fun!

In Grenada~

Sorry we've been suck slackers with our posts! We made it to Grenada safe and sound and are enjoying our time here so far. It's quite the adjustment, with the heat and humidity, but we're getting there! (We are Seattlites after all!) Jackson did very well on the plane and seems to be adjusting to the heat fairly well also. Speaking of Jackson, he celebrated being a month old on Feb 24!! I can't believe it's been that long. He grows and grows every day.... he's amazing! He's constantly showing us bits of his personality as it develops too. We are so blessed to have such an amazing little guy.

We love our house also. We're living in a duplex type house next to some of our very good friends and love the situation so far. We're slowly learning how to get around the island and some of the very important do's and don'ts!

Anyway, we'll post pictures soon of the island, our house, and the little guy! Thanks for all of your prayers as we transition to life here! It's hasn't been entirely easy, but we are truly blessed to be here.

Goodnight for now!
