I'm sorry I am not good at updating very often, but when something exciting happens I am sure to let you know.
Yesterday was our staff retreat and we spent the day at the beach playing, swimming, getting massages, learning hula, belly dancing, eating real good food, getting things (new bag, PTO, small gifts), and spending some quality time with people from work.
It was an amazing day. Didn't have to think about work except for the time the OT leaving wanted to talk about her cases.
Today it was hard to work after a relaxing day yesterday. I was so tired by 3 pm and had to go home.
Sorry, life in Maui is not more exciting, but the beach, the weather, the short days, and long nights, are pretty much it and not much has changed.
About my trip to Romania. I have currently 4 people including me. We are still planning to go in August. Please pray that we will get the right people to join our group. We found out that the church has too many groups going this year and we are too late to join in the fund raising so we will have to do that ourselves. Many negative things right now about the plans for the trip but I know God cares for those children and we will have the best team to care for them.
Next Saturday our Halau will be participating in the Worship Hula Festival and we will be performing the same song we did on Palm Sunday and some people will be doing the same song from Easter.
Hope everyone is doing well and I will try my best to keep you guys updated.

Week update!

I wanted to share the Hula song we did at church today with everyone, but I couldn't figure out how to put the video on here. I'm not sure it can be done.
Anyways, here are a few pictures from our performance today. This is some of my friends and I in our Hula attire.
This is my roommate and I after church.

Well, not much to update. This past week was a long week. I had something every night. Monday I went and worked out. Tuesday I had Hula practice. Wednesday we went to see a movie about the "Lost boys of Sudan". Thursday my friend and I (my friend who was my movie friend who is moving to Cali) went to see Amazing Grace. Friday I worked on Lanai, went to see a movie called "the Tiger and the snow" with the same actors as in Life is Beautiful, and then went to church. Saturday I worked on my Hula skirt that took forever (4 hours), went to a dinner, and then watched a movie with my friends and had wine. Sunday I was at church from 7:30 am to 12:00 doing Hula for both services, then we went to lunch, took a nap and watched a movie "Lady in the water".
Have a good week everyone.
