The kids obviously had a lot of fun. I continue to be super impressed with the level to which Koa is included in everything they do. My younger son isn't a student at Punana Leo, but he is always treated as one. He has a place in line during Piko (the opening ceremony for our weekly meetings), the teachers always speak to him in Hawaiian, and even during this field trip he was allowed to participate in everything they did - including making and eating an entire personal pizza!
Punana Leo says "we are all ohana" and they really mean it. Koa has always been included in everything to the extent that he is willing and able. I love APL - what a joy!
