No Problem Man

Today we visited Jamaica using our imaginations and the pictures and artifacts that Randy and I brought back from our trip.   The kids loved the wooden head. Jamiaca is known for it’s wood art.  The head is a little scary but very interesting.  William took it and said ” Hey, this is weird.Are  YOU looking at ME?”  We listened to a Jamaican man read ” a excerpt from a Dr Suess book and learned a little about their life.  Jamaica was my favorite stop on our cruise.  I love seeing the non- commercialized  sections of the island.  For instance , seeing a woman walk her goat to the market.  At the arts and crafts area we stopped at the people beg for your business .  I heard constantly ” you will be my first customer this morning!”  ( And another tour bus left just before we arrived. )


















































The kids are bringing home a pencil I picked up for them in Jamaica . It has a l traditional ladies head on the top .  Maybe they could practice writing their hames at home .  ( Remember do not teach ALL CAPS.  We encourage them to make the first letter upper case and the rest lower case. )


Danielle did a cooking experience  with them today and made simple Jamaican bread .  It was made from flour and spices and raisins.  I had to taste one straight out of the oven and it was YUMMY!   ( Hint… ingredients must be measured.  8 ounces of flour is not one cup .)

And then there is my favorite picture of the day.  Scarlett found a toy snake and I caught her saying ” Mr. Randy…… Oh Mr Randy….” as she hid around the corner waiting to scare him.  So cute.  Of course it scared him tremendously !
( Do you ever take pictures and think wow… that area looks pathetic.  Geez.. time to do some spring cleaning. )
Tomorrow we cruise to the Grand Cayman Islands where we went in a semi submerged submarine and saw huge fish and a diver and a ship wreck and visited a turtle farm.
