My husband Dave and I have been living in Hawaii for nearly 18 years. We arrived on the island with one son, and have had 3 more since. We moved to Oahu for my husband’s (3-year) medical residency training, and never left. (That seems to happen a lot around here.) We live on the North Shore on a hill in the country overlooking the “7 Mile miracle” — 7 miles of some of the best surfing beaches in the world. We grow tropical fruits, and in between surf sessions, I homeschool my 4 boys. Actually just 3 now — our oldest just took the long-dreaded-but-obviously-healthy-launch to Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Ca. I’m thrilled to report that he is very happy and adjusting well. We’re all trying to do the same.
