Happy birthday Rory - was so cool to see you yesterday at the Glenbervie Forest. Zane biked the ten kms and said it was steep so you guys did well with the buggy! Really keen to see you for a Lego playdate soon. Hope you get lots of Easter eggs and enjoy the Taranaki.

Hi there, great to hear you had a special birthday Rory, Lily (Caids little sister) turned 6 the same day. We were all sitting round the table with birthday lunch and Caid said "it's Rory's birthday today too", I had been thinking the same thing so we celebrated for you too. We had Caid and Lily's older brothers Ethan and Jacob, a couple of Uncles popped in, a Nana and an Aunty. It is awesome being surrounded by Family and it makes the day like one big party!
I still enjoy reading your entries although I don't manage it daily anymore as I am studying now as well as working, but your whole Family is still in my thoughts and the good vibes automatically come your way.
Lots of love
Jeni Gorrie and Family.

Laughed out loud at you putting your hand over Dad's mouth!!
Hearing you on the scariness of the next mri  Leigh, but acknowledging that and moving ahead is the bravest course you can sail...

No amount of words from me will change anything. But, and we all know I can't keep quiet, thank you for sharing with us. It helps me to understand my sister ... so ... 'Keep on swimming.' Lots of love from Tangowahine

Hi Rory and family, what an awesome holiday!!! We are hoping to get down there this year too.  You will be able to give William some advice.  Australia's wildlife is pretty dramatic and amazing, we discover new things every day, and its so nice to see it all afresh through your eyes.  We have had such a learning curve here, with all the bugs, creatures and animals.  Its been quite an experience.  So impressed with all you were able to cram in also.  The time difference plays such havoc, I was very impressed.  Thinking of you all.
