After just 6 short weeks of summer, we are walking back to School.
We were excited to find that both Sydney and Emily ended up with our #1 top teacher picks!
Sydney was not so excited about the photo-shoot. Mom. Please, this is embarrassing me... Notice the star lei she is wearing? She learned how to make those last week, and gave that one to her teacher. Sydney is so crafty!
Emily, on the other hand, wasn't afraid to smile for me.
John doesn't start school 'til late next week, but he's got the morning routine down!
Happy Back to School Day!
Most of the Hawaii schools do a year round kind of thing. We get about 2 weeks off for fall break, 3 weeks off at Christmas, 2 weeks off for Spring Break, and 6 weeks in the summer. I guess that works, especially since it is always beautiful and summer-like in Hawaii, so why not take a few weeks off throughout the year?
Even though our summer felt way too short, back to school time is still totally exciting. Walking down to check out the class lists + sharpening pencils + buying new slippah's for school = Fun!
