    Phone call from Plebe!!!!

    Well, it was 8:00 AM our time (Hawaii) and the phone call we have been anticipating came. Our daughter said things are going well. She said that it is 75% good and 25 % bad and overall she is sure this is the right place for her. How about everyone else? :rolleyes:
