Getting ready to go!

We have made of progress getting ready for the move to Kauai. Packing up our apartment is a huge process.  The kitchen is cleaned and not allowed to be used again!  Looks like we will be having sandwiches until we leave.  We have started packing our clothes... it is not easy because both of us have A LOT!  At least we know that all of the warm sweaters and coats can go into storage for the time being :)  The principal of the school I will be working at said that I can dress very casually for work (like in jeans)... but I don't want to look like one of the students!  It is a k-12 school, so there will be high school students in the building.

The next big question after all the packing is said and done is, where are we going to live now?  I posted an ad on Craigslist under "housing wanted" and actually got responses!  Looks like we will probably be living in the city Waimea.  There is a couple who rents out the first floor of their house.  The husband is also a teacher and is from Livonia, MI!  That is where Cory is from, what a small world!  We will be paying the exact same amount that we pay here in Ann Arbor, not bad considering we will now be within walking distance from the Pacific Ocean!  It's only a 5 minute bus ride away from my school too!  I hope nobody gets to this place before we fly in!
