Yesterday was our last "celebration" of our countries that we have visited over the last 180 days. We have been in Hawaii (and yes I know Hawaii is NOT a country) since the beginning of June. Yesterday was our luau - a very non-traditional luau. The kids made ice cream sundaes - and added pineapple and tropical fruits - my acknowledgement of local foods.
I snuffled and coughed and sweated my way through setting up tables - organizing the fruits and marshmallows and chocolate sauce and caramel sauce - the leis - and the ice cream and the bowls and the spoons.
And when it was all over - except for the cleaning - I shooed the kiddies outside to run off the sugar ...... left a few staff to clean up the mess - and I dragged my sick body home to bed.
Now it really is wind down time....... hold the roof on until Friday .... finish up last minute paper work - visit with the kids some - go to the Grade 6 graduation exercises (tonite if I can hold up long enough) go to the Kindergarten graduation exercises tomorrow (don't get me started on graduation exercises for Kindergarten!!) and set my sights on Friday June 29th when I lock my office door and walk out of the building and start my summer vacation!!!
