Bright and early, I took my littlest monkey to her field trip. Glad I got a hearty breakfast in her. The supposed snack break never happened. Can't keep kids from snack breaks. Monkey was hungry and grumpy at the end. The ancient Hawaiians made "subdivisions" in the land based on our stream systems called ahupua'a. These subdivisions run from the mountain to the sea and are used harmoniously to sustain each ahupua'a's group. Today we did the mountain end. Here she is towering next to the mountain. So the field trip for the homeschool kids was like sweatshop labor. Work em hard with no break. Actually, they hiked, got to sample some wild edibles, and worked. They shoveled dirt, hauled dirt, and replanted taro. Yeah a snack break would have been good. The kids were tired and hungry. Monkey perked up after getting some food back in her. And her favorite part was replanting the taro. Surprised me. I thought it would be the hike. Oh, here's the road in.
