It's September...

We've been in school for a month already.  The children are settling into the routines and making new friends.  I have a fun bunch of kinders this year and can't wait for more adventures throughout the school year.

I love Wheel of Fortune and it's always easy to solve the puzzles at home.  I've always thought of trying out for the show whenever they come to Hawaii, but I always chicken out.

My niece and her halau competed in a hula competition this past weekend.  She has gotten better over the years and it was so nice to see them and celebrate their wins.  She also used my grandma's ipu in one of her dances.  She has the love of hula that my grandma had.  My grandma would be so proud of her.

We've been in school for a month and there are some changes/accommodations that I need to make to help several students learn better in my classroom.

I love living in Hawaii, but the humidity has been horrible.  It's been hot and sticky the past few days.  Oh how I wish I had a/c in my apartment.

We have begun our new LA curriculum...Wonders.  I have signed up for a 3 credit PD course to dig deeper in the curriculum and I haven't started day 1 yet.  I "NEED"  to get moving.

3 places I'd like to go to, but never visited:  New York...Times Square and the Statue of Liberty.  Oregon...just because.  Japan...I love the Japanese sweets and novelties...Hello Kitty, Kerropi, Little  Twin Stars and My Melody are my faves.

2 more work days to go...enjoy them.

xoxo, Julie
