Today was the final day of my son’s two week Kamehameha Schools “Transition period”.  This is the time when the kids that are admitted to KSBE as Kindergartners get an orientation to the school and learn the basics about what the school is about.

The kids and the parents had a pool party today.

I mentioned the other day that my son got sick so since Friday we have kept him home.

We were only planning on bringing him there to say bye to his classmates until the “Real” Schooling starts in August and to contribute to the potluck and grab a bite to eat.

As soon he saw all the other kids swimming… he immediately got sad and wanted to go swimming.  I felt like a terrible father not letting him swim… so I told my wife I was going home to get his bathing suit so that he could swim at least for a little while.  My wife wasn’t happy…. but my son sure was!

"I got my way!"

The pool area is pretty sweet, even the bathrooms and changing areas were nice… and did I mention they have a Hot Tub!

The kids stayed out of the hot tub today.

After that, we went downtown to pick up his school uniforms.

Of course my wife and son were taking their sweet time trying on all sorts of clothes so I did the typical guy thing and bailed out and went and took the following pictures.

And of course what blog on the Big Island wouldn’t be complete without a picture of the Hilo’s infamous humming Wailuku Bridge.
