Hau`oli la Hanau

Today was a pretty uneventful day.  I had an all-day training on how to use the Smartboard, there are so many cool things that you can do with it!  Tomorrow I hope to get most of the syllabus done, it is definitely not easy to do with three grade levels and five subjects!

We found out something interesting about Kauai today... mail is not delivered to the houses!  EVERYONE has to get a post office box and the mail is delivered there.  It is free if you are living in the same city as the post office is in.  We tried to get ours today but they were all out and we were put on a waiting list.  In the mean time they will hold our mail for us and we just have to go to the post office when it is open and pick it up.  Another strange thing about Kauai is that you cannot set up utility bills over the phone (like DTE) you actually have to go to the office and do it in person.  This is not very convenient.  Cory and I are going to set all of it up tomorrow so we can hopefully move-in by Thursday!


Was anyone wondering what the title of this post means?   Hau`oli la Hanau is how you say Happy Birthday in Hawaiian... Happy Birthday Dad!! I miss you and hope you had a good day today!
