I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade for October's Currently!
Listening: As I'm typing I can hear the microwave thawing out some chicken. My hubby got a new job the other day, so he'll be working later than me and it is now my job to cook dinner. The fam won't get tired of Top Ramen 4 times a week, right? Kidding!
Loving: Hawaii public schools have a week long Fall Break this week. I can't believe it's almost over! We've been having so much fun going to the beach, exploring more of Lana'i, visiting my parents on Maui, and shopping at Costco!
Thinking: Since school started on July 31st, we have already been in school for one quarter. That's so crazy to me! I've learned so much, but it still seems like it's gone by so fast. I'm looking forward to the rest of the year!
Wanting: As I mentioned above, my parents are in Hawaii for Fall Break, too. They are in Lana'i with us right now and staying at a hotel in town. Currently, they are sailing with my son's 1st grade teacher. Lucky ducks! It's been so great having them here, I'm not sure I want them to leave!
Needing: Nothing! We went shopping in Maui and stocked up on things, my hubby got a new job, I've been spending quality time with the kiddos and my parents. I am so content and happy!
Book: I know I was supposed to tell you about a fall or Halloween type book, but I wanted to tell you what I am reading right now. Moloka'i is a historical fiction novel about a little girl in the late 1800's from Honolulu who contracts Leprosy and is sent to live in Kalapapa, Moloka'i. I'm not even half way through it and I love it so far. It's really interesting, is helping me learn more about the Hawaiian culture, and is a good story. I love how the author weaves in Hawaiian words and traditions throughout the story. I've heard he wrote another book Honolulu and I'll be checking that one out next!
