Christmas Storytelling at Our Library, ala Dr. Seuss

Our Third Annual Christmas Storytelling Hour for our alumni keiki was a huge success!

Here are some photos for you to enjoy ---

Keana, Austin, and Julian volunteered to read The Cat in the Hat.

The Whos performed a choral reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The keiki enjoyed the stories.
Afterwards, Kaulu served Who pudding, made by the Whos' leader Jos Reber Akoi '84.

I look forward to this little event every year! Reconnecting with alumni is such a joy.

And meeting their children? I can't even begin to describe how wonderful that feels.

I have the best job in the world!

"I have always imagined Paradise will be a kind of library" -- thanks, Kay!

"I have always imagined Paradise will be a kind of library." --Jorge Luis Borges

This is what I found on my desk this morning... thanks so much, Kay! On my Christmas tree this will go, and you will always be on my mind when I decorate every year.

More than that, this lovely ornament will be a treasured addition to my reading figurine cove in my home (that collection is worthy of its own blog post!).

You really shouldn't have, Kay -- no need for gifts! But you must have known how happy this would make me.

Thank you so much, and I wish for you and your family much happiness during this holiday season, and beyond.

Shakespeare Festival FUN at our school today

My seventh grade advisees had so much fun at the Shakespeare Festival today!

They were in one of many little groups making the rounds throughout campus to enjoy performances by the Sophomores. Each Middle School group watched scenes from four plays. Our group watched (with rapt attention) Love's Labour's Lost, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Twelfth Night, and Comedy of Errors. And the games after each scene were so much fun! We laughed a LOT (and ate a lot of candy) ...

Congratulations to our Sophomores for doing such a fantastic job with The Bard!
