Winter Break

I actually had a hard time teaching 6 year olds how to say “eyes, ears, mouth, nose” today. Over the past two weeks, I climbed so far out of the groove of work that I’m still settling back in.

Hawaii, Shanghai, Ferry

My winter vacation was excellent. I didn’t realize that much could be done in two weeks and still be called a vacation. I met my parents in Hawaii and relaxed for a few days, read a few books, went snorkeling with some spinner dolphins, hiked to a 1200 foot high waterfall, mucked around in the jungle with Sienna and her boyfriend and his brother looking for some nonexistent springs, went golfing, jumped off 70-foot cliffs into the ocean at the southernmost point in America, body-surfed on a green sand beach, drank good beer, and generally had a good time.
