The snow day on Tuesday made my heart soar. I was so excited that I imagined myself sledding with my neighbors instead of studying for a test I was supposed to have Wednesday (but actually didn't take until today). So, I looked over my Hawaiian Vocabulary Book before heading out to sled with my two neighbors! The new word I tried to learn is sky, which in Hawaiian is Lani (LAH-nee). I chose to learn this word today because I can say "The Lani looks very gray with clouds today!" to my neighbors. I'm not sure I'll remember it, since the only word I remember to say is Good Morning, which in Hawaiian is Aloha kakahiaka (al-LOH-hah kah-kah-hee-AH-kah). I need to work on writing that out and learning how to spell it. Right now all I can do is say it! I chose to learn Hawaiian because I want to go to Hawaii someday really badly! I love dressing up in my swimsuit, grass skirt, and beautiful flower bracelet and nut necklace. I have a play ukelele but I don't know how to play it. Some day I'll learn, but right now I've got my mind on the ice that is still out there from Tuesday. It's very icy and I like to ice skate on the longest strip up the road! How fun! Well it's time for me to leave! A hui hou! (a HOO-e hoe)!
