Anna had her second undokai (field day) last weekend:

Ren’s not in school till next year so he was still watching with us. Next year he will start school (frighteningly enough), and the wifey plans to help out with the event organization so I will probably be watching both of them by myself.

The princess has gotten so big over the last year. It’s kind of easy to lose track when you are with them all the time but looking at the first year students kind of illustrated how much she has grown.

And as always, the wifey managed to “volunteer” me for a few things:

It’s funny how crazy competitive all the adults get in these things. I thought my heart was going to explode.


We just got back from a vacation in Hawaii with my parents. We went to Oahu first and spent a couple days around Waikiki:

Met up with my friend Orr who lives in the area:

Then it was off to Hawaii Island:

And we went to see Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes on the earth:

Even got to walk through an old lava tube:

And the water was beautiful of course:

The kids had fun:
