The day after my graduation from seminary our family jumped (we actually walked) on a plane that was headed to Kauai. Looking back on my sabbatical leaving town immediately was the best decision we could have ever made! We spent the next ten days in Kauai with my family and had a GREAT time. The girls loved hanging out with their cousins, I loved seeing my sister and it was great having Oma and Opa there.
One thing I promised the girls was that we would get shave ice every day. Shave ice is pretty much the best invention in the world and I enjoyed every time we ate it.
Finally, for this post, I have to mention how much fun I had snorkeling with my wife and my sister. I love being out in nature, I love chasing fish around the ocean and I love being able to see more of what God has created!
God knew this was how we needed to start our sabbatical!
