Things are happening…

I haven’t posted this week and it’s because we’ve been BUSY!  Here’s a short rundown of what we’ve been up to this week…

We went to Paradise Beach to try out SNUBA for the first time.  Fun times!

The visibility wasn’t great… it’s low season in Thailand.  But we had a great time and Wesley learned how to use a regulator.  It was awesome.  I’ll write a longer post on it sometime soon.  Because after SNUBA we went to Patong to do some shopping…

The mall there is HUGE and we were excited to do a little shopping.  We had to bribe Wesley with McDonald’s nuggets and Baskin Robbins : )  But as we were paying for his nuggets we realized we were OUT of cash.  Paradise Beach had soaked us completely.  A quick pat-down revealed that neither Damon or I had remembered to bring our ATM card.  Major fail.  We scraped together all the money we had, found a cabbie who would drive us home for 400Thb (in coins practically!) and managed to buy Wesley a single cone of “cotton candy” before we left.  Not ONE restaurant or store that we went into would take credit cards…?!

But the next day we had important business…

Wesley had to take his third grade exams : )

Wesley passes 3rd grade!

I looked around online for grade evaluation tests and finally found this Ohio half-test.  It seemed like a good idea to give him a test to “pass” third grade.  He even got a diploma : )

And to top it all off… we’re moving tomorrow!  We’re packing up today to leave early on Saturday for Samui.  We have to take a bus, a ferry and a cab to get there, so it should be an interesting travel day.
