Hello Guam!

26 hours. 22 minutes. 46 seconds. That is how long it took us to get here from Jane's parents' house to our temporary apartment on Guam. Everything went as smooth as we could have hoped. The time change has been an adjustment. We were all awake at 2:00 a.m. on the first day, 4:00 a.m. on the second day and are regularly rising at 5:00 a.m.

We're slowing learning our way around the island and enjoy trying to find licenses plates from the mainland. So far, we've found Washington, Oregon, Florida, Texas, Ohio and South Dakota. We'll continue to hunt for Wisconsin plates and we're happy to report that Green Bay Packer gear is available at the local K-Mart.

The first week has been extremely busy in our search for new cell phone service, rental apartments, cars, etc. We've accomplished a lot in the few days we've been on the island.

The weather is hot and humid. We have a nice pool and we are swimming every day. We've made friends with resident gecko and Evie named it "Blueberry." There are about a thousand snails along the sidewalk and they are fun to watch in slo-mo.

We've had a few early breakfasts this week....and a few second breakfasts during regular eating hours.

The kids are having fun locating the mainland licenses plates. We're still on the hunt for a Wisconsin plate!

Our resident gecko, Blueberry, enjoys hiding behind our light.

When your body wakes you up at 2:00 a.m., why not catch up on some Percy Jackson and Greek mythology?
