Just a little update… We’re back in the swing of things now and off to a great start. Last week I got my official notice for tenure as a HI teacher and the feeling of increased job security is great, especially with furloughs and statewide budget cuts. Julia’s on-deck and cruising through the year at the middle school. ’09 was full of changes for us so we’re really looking forward to some consistency in the year ahead. Hopefully 2010 will bring back economic stability and an improved educational outlook to the islands. In the meantime, the cats are still fat and happy, our plants are looking pretty nice, and the surf’s up too. Hope all is well with you!
