In a little grass shack in Hawaii

Another week has passed and I haven't gotten myself into gear with those photos.... O:-) (I will I will I will!) It's just me and my roomie for a couple weeks because someone lucky gets to go on a business trip around the world (literally). Yesterday we saw a lion dance show together.

Everyone at school seemed really happy- no stressing about upcoming events and I got to do my favorite thing with my kids: art projects!!!!! :)

But, technically, I didn't have a real break until the next day when I got to fly out to Hong Kong! We were only there to get my Chinese visa, but I really really want to go back. Hong Kong is super trendy. It's big, but everything's closely packed in.
