We had so much fun with Sasha and Shaylei. One of the many fun things we did was go to Blue Cave, a sea cave formed by thousands of years of ocean waves pounding against the lava and eventually etching out a cavern. The water inside this wet cave is fed by springs seeping through the pourous lava and is extremely cold. There are a couple of wet caves on Kauai's north shore. Legend states that these caves were built by Pele, the volcano goddess, for her lover, but when they filled with water, she abandoned them.
Poipu Beach is on the south side of the island. It is a real "tourisy" beach, but it is fun for the kids. It is protected by the reef so the waves are not very big, and there is a "kiddie pool." Erick and Ethan went snorkeling while Izzie and I built sand castles.
Isn't he the cutest boy!
After fun in the sun, we went to Koloa Town, an old sugar plantation town.
Ethan is such a great student. He has always been very inquisitive and loves learning. We are excited about this school year, Ethan knows most of the kids in his class, as they were in his 2nd grade class. We love Hanalei School!
