It get so hot here too where outside become unbearable today is not too bad it is only 31C or 88F, we go all the way up to 38-42C or 100-107F for the month of august, then comes fire season so scary. Hope this week is finding you all having a great time.
All the public schools in HI are transitioning to year round school this year, so the kids had a really short summer. They had one week off before summer program started, summer program for 4 weeks and then two weeks until school starts again. Both the kids have been fussing about doing summer school and not having much time off, but the upside is that they have a fall break, 3 weeks at Christmas and 2 weeks in the spring and they won't be home long enough to get bored or for Jacob to get out of rythm with his school schedule!
Now we just need to survive our 2 week vacation to the grandparents!
