Day 8:  Joaquin’s Second First Day of School.


We patiently waited to make sure that he was really accepted to school.  He was.  We took him to his class.  I almost cried like I do on the first day of school.  Like I said in a previous post, the school is only minutes away from our house.  They do breakfast and lunch.  Their building is lime green (very Caribbean).  There are about 260 kids for K-6th.  Joaquin’s class is now at 25 students because of him.  We received the handbook and bought his gym uniform.  I will join the PTA as well.


With Joaquin safely at school now, we decided to make a decision on the vehicle.  We had searched Craig’s List and the newspaper trying to find something in our range.  We lined up several showings.


Now it was time to make the final decision.  We went with the GMC Sonoma truck.  That’s right.  We will be driving a truck which will come in handy here.   We also have preset our radio station to 93.5 Caribbean Country.  I joked with Jonathan, “It took the Caribbean to make me country.”  haha

The previous owner of the truck is the husband of the owner of a local restaurant named Mim’s Seaside Bistro.  We made reservations for Saturday night.


Also, our first choice on the living room furniture arrived.  Ahhhh.  Thank goodness.

We love it.


I went to pick up Joaquin from school.  He came running out saying, “Mommy, mommy, I made three friends today.”  I sighed a sigh of relief.  Now, I can focus on getting Isabella ready for her school.  We have the school supply list, and he has homework.


This was the end of a long week with some items done and some still left to be finished.

  • I love the furniture! I didn’t know you’d started a blog until today, but I just caught up and it was so great to see your smiling faces!

      I posted it on Facebook, but that was really the only place I mentioned it. We thought it would be a good way for everyone to keep up with what we are doing on the island. Let’s hope it is mostly smiling faces.
