Mahalo Nui Loa to Joe and Elk-ders for hosting us once again!
Last Friday was a busy but incredibly fulfilling day. It started with an amazing 100+ Keiki Kanikapila at Lynnette Boosey’s School, Lynwood Elementary. Click below for a link to the photo album.
To think that just last year we were playing to them and now here they are playing WITH us! Mark was even playing the Bass and doing Ukulele Solos. Then they did an amazing Hanalei Moon, while Nohea hula’d On. As if that wasn’t maika’i enough they even sang Koke’e, in Hawaiian (of course) beautifully! I’m sure Uncle Dennis was smiling down on them that day . . . Mahalo Lynnette for bringing the Ukulele into their lives and for doing such good work. So heart warming to see them jamming on their Ukes during lunch and running around with their Aloha Shirts. Brought back very fond memories of my elementary school, Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary.
Later that afternoon, after a 1 hour power nap, we had band practice with Betty Ann Bruno’s Halau, Hula Mai, and then right into Friday Night Kanikapila. Our day didn’t end until 12am that morning. If there was only a way to get paid for having this much fun!
Ok, so that was it for last week. Pretty fun huh? Thank god there was nothing on Sunday!
An ocean of smiles,
Eager hands ready to strum,
Koke’e at last.
