May 7th, 2015 - Koh Lanta, Thailand - Day 266

Our last full day in Koh Lanta was actually pretty exciting compared to most.  It was not all that different for Stacie, Peter and I, but for Lea it was off the charts exciting.  How can that be?  I am sure you are asking.  Well this morning Lea declared - I am going to finish school today.  This came as a bit of a surprise to us because, while Lea has spent much of the time in Thailand locked in her room studying and wrapping up assignments, she still had her Final Exams for both Math and Science along with a module test for math remaining.  She confidently declared "I am going to take them all today."  We were surprised, but let her know we would do whatever we could to help.  She disappeared into her room and started to work.  

Throughout the day she would emerge and let us know she was done with another exam.  Around 5:00 she came out and announced she was DONE!  This was a huge accomplishment for Lea and we could not be prouder of her.  To have both kids done with school this early in May is fantastic - we decided to celebrate that evening by going out for a special meal - of course to Majestic.  

Before we headed down though we wanted to take another family picture.  We took a few using the remote I had purchased in Burford, and then we had a passing stranger take a couple on the beach.  

Just a test shot - but blew me away how big Peter is

We had a great celebration dinner and then headed back to the house to start packing up for the trip the next day.  Koh Lanta has been INCREDIBLE and we will all miss its charm and peacefulness.
