Better late than never?

As my sunburns have finally finished healing I suppose it’s time to accept the fact I am no longer in Hawaii and share some photos with all of you from the Therap regional conference in Honolulu, HI!

Waikiki beach with Diamond Head in the background!

Kevin showed us around town the first night we got in. Here is my first Hawaiian sunset!!

The folks at the conference were SO welcoming and I had a GREAT time leading sessions on all things Therap with this group! Here are a few shots from the conference!

Plenary Session!

Playing DSP on Planet EPTHAR... Click on the photo to try it out!!

After the conference was over I got to spend two days wandering around¬†Oahu! I enjoyed breakfast on the beach, a luau, a tour around the entire island (which included driving past Jackie Chan’s summer home!) and an entire day on the beach which I kept with me until my skin finished peeling a few days ago Emoticon showing smiley face Here are a couple more photos from my adventures!

At a beautiful beach just east of Waikiki!

Sleeping Dragon Mountain at Hanauma Bay! Can you see its head and shoulder?

At the Dole Pineapple Plantation! I had the most delicious pineapple sorbet... makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Can you spot the man who climbed to the top of the coconut tree?

 

I took a little sail! In the background is Waikiki and Diamond Head

Can you spy the sunburn shining through? The white bird on the left kept giving me kisses on my cheek while we were taking photos!

I’ve missed Hawaii everyday since I got back, and can’t wait to return!! The last couple of weeks I have spent touring around the state of Nebraska, which is very near and dear to my heart since it’s where I was raised! Last week I met with state service coordinators in the Eastern half of the state to discuss the new budget module and ISP (or IPP to all of my Nebraskans). I received SUCH a warm welcome from the service coordinators, to which I was grateful! We had some really great discussions about the modules already implemented in the state of Nebraska and those which are coming in the near future. I urge any agencies in Nebraska who aren’t fulling utilizing Therap to contact me so I can show you what this great program has to offer!! I’ll be returning soon Nebraska friends! Can’t wait to get some “hands on” time with the service coordinators! Until next time, aloha fellow Therap lovers!
