Starting school: the big K. that right folks kindergarten. Of course I forgot my camera on Friday when a hot air balloon landed across the major street from school in a church field and another hot air balloon was roughly 50 - 100 feet above the school. The little ones were so cute. "please land here. I hope it lands on my clasroom"
Wine Country Ukelele festival (picts coming)
We are smack dab in the middle of the Kids Fair.
And preparing for our Halau's big Ho'ike show in the middle of October.
And yes it has finally happened. I knew it would. 200GB on my computer FULL. Time to do some house cleaning. Yikes. I'm actually a bit surprised it took this long. I know what I will be doing this week.....
HA HA Suckers. I just found my D drive . 200 more GB for me. Party. They should last me a few months ....hopefully...

Ah here’s our humble abode. Now I must let you in on a small fact. I don’t camp. I have issues that I don’t like open air when I slumber. I like to feel as if there are four SOLID walls around my body. Unless it’s 80 to 90 degrees with high humidity I don’t even crack a window. Size does not matter, it could be a box. So this was quite a big thing for me to do. I am not too proud to admit that yes I did sleep in the middle with a five year old protecting me on one side.
Also it seemed that everyone was having a wonderful time. So why don’t we save that discussion for the next day, maybe the ride home? Little Johnny may like to wake up at 4:30, but he can probably remember the night before without you rehashing it loudly at that hour. If I wanted to hear how much you and your child enjoyed the evening before, I would have invited you into my tent at 9am. Whispering before 7 am is always appreciated. Especially by those who are a bit grumpy from trying to fall asleep with children circling their tent the night before. Thanks.

So last Wednesday was one of these occasions. The wee one and I grabbed a couple of her friends whose parents were off to celebrate a birthday and go to a concert and sauntered over to Oma’s. It was a warm summer evening and the sun was beginning to set.
Here's the cottage next to the courtyard. Aren’t these French doors beautiful? Okay I’m a bit biased because I built them. That’s right kiddies I built them. These beauties started off as 5 pieces of redwood and 2 big planes of glass.
Let the feasting begin. Here it’s serve yourself. You make it as you like it. A little or a lot. Don’t forget the music. Tonight it was Johnny Cash.
