Hi Rory! Butterfly creek is cool we went there a couple of years ago boy it is hot in the butterfly enclosure!  We held a rabbit too but I can remember what colour it was!  Thankyou Rory for the cool rubber! and for spending your own pocket money on me!  I stayed at Kories place last night and we went out to the beach and looked at the stars and moon through a telescope!  I saw Saturn! The moon was full of bumps and holes it was really cool!  We went and helped stack your firewood today.  It was hot! afterwards we jumped on your trampoline with Sam and kicked balls around!  Mum gave us all a bag of lollies!  there is some coming down for you and your Mum!  Stink school tomorrow!  I have not caught up to you on the spelling graph yet.  One good thing is it is Easter next weekend so only 4 days at school then holidays!  Hope we get to see each other then! Keep Cool and goodluck for your next operation on Tuesday.

Kia Ora Rory.I'm Korie's Nana Morrison. I bet you enjoyed Butterfly Creek. Did you go for a ride on the train? Korie and I and his cousin Aedan went there a couple of years ago and they held a black and white rabbit.I wonder if it is still there! Another neat place to explore is the kids area at the Auckland Museum. They have lots of dead bugs and spiders in drawers that you can look at; it's really cool. I don't think Korie's mum Kathryn would like the spiders, though!With very best wishes to you and your family

Hi Rory,
Today I climbed Tutamoe with Conor, Dad and the Sucklings and Jason Kermode.  We had to stop for some breaks. My legs got tired quickly but we had a big break when we were at the top.  We saw Kai Iwi Lakes and I could just see Whangarei.  It sounds like you've been having lots of fun trips, cool!  Mummy went and helped with wood stacking today, but got there a wee bit late, in time for a cuppa tea.  We wish you lots of luck for Tuesday and will be thinking lots of good thoughts about you.  Love from Zack and Kay

Hi Rory! 
What an fantastic website you have!  I have really enjoyed looking at all of your wonderful photos.  What an adventurer you are!
When I was just a little bit older than you I was best friends with your mum.  We used to hang out and listen to Spandau ballet and Duran Duran on her getto blaster because we thought all the singers were really spunky. (not that cool I know but dont tell your mum I let you know).
I hope you get better soon so you can catch up with all your friends who really miss you!  Looks like school is no where near as much fun without you!
Lots of love,

Well hello again!  Sounds like you had a pretty fantastic day.  Kelly Tarltons is cool, and well done Leigh with the Auckland traffic!  and probaly managing a wheelchair in and out of the car too!  A couple of weeks ago I dropped the boys off at school put Stella in the car and went home only to find I had driven off and left Stellas pram on the side of the road!!! (A kind friend saw and discreetly dropped it off to me Thankgoodness).  Off to stack the wood tomorrow I have heard that Sean would like a sleep-in so will head up mid morning.  Kody is staying the night at Kories place and they were going out to the observatory tonight to look at the stars! Sending down all our love, strength and positive vibes!  Call me if you need to vent some steam!  Enjoy tomorrow too.  Trudi, Brian, Kody, Ben and Stella xxxxx
