Since returning from the World Championships in Kona, life has been very busy. Catching up on the grading of my students’ works has taken most of my time but of course I can’t complain … after all I got to go to Kona and fulfill my teaching responsibilities from that more than heavenly spot. The pictures are downloaded from the camera but not uploaded to the website yet; I promise to get them done soon! And then there are lots of stories to tell of sun, long swims, exciting races and island explorations. Stay tuned!
