yahooooo, done dusted and one very exhausted but happy and proud to have done the camp with no worries at nite at all - just mum who worried - you can try not to but it comes with the territory eh.  seriously logan had no issues at nite at all he was too tired i think - but it sounds like loads of fun was had and he is very keen for camp next year too!!!

hi there again - i am holding in there - just i didnt sleep much last nite tossed and turned so i hope logan slept better than me at camp - it absolutely bucketed down during the nite so i guess the mud run would have proved very fun for the kids today.  jason should arrive home late tonite with the update for me - good news i hope with logan staying in the cabins with his mates.  i'm sure they have had heaps of fun so far.  mikayla is all out of sorts keeps looking everywhere for logan and her dad and bangs on the door to see if they are coming home yet.  hey sam i bet you are trying to look just like logan with the long hair - quite a way to go if you want to get there he is 3 years without a haircut so far - keep going you can do it !!!!(not that it would look like logan surfy curls tho - mum may have words with me if i encourage you - maybe she would let you get a perm!!!!) ha ha take care love and hugs wendy jason logan and mikayla

hi there troops, well I think logan is all set and packed for camp tomorro morning, jason is going with him to stay for the first night and will mean 2 full days of fun and gmaes, but he cant stay overnight the last night as he has to fly up to auckland before 7 am on the friday morning so he will hang about till after the lights go out for bedtime on thursday night.  hopefully all will go well - I am a bucket of nerves for logan - and i am trying to be brave - but i know i am not doing a great job really.  I am going out just after breakfast on friday as i am needed for transport home, so me and mikayla will be lost without the boys home, and jason will be home very late on thursday nite and gone very early friday morning.  I also get very woriied about jas driving on the awful gravel winding valley road from the te wera camp (near whangamomoana) back to stratford for the hour trip home to np, man what a bundle of nerves i will be till saturday !!!! arghhhhhhhh.  Anyhow great to hear you are hanging in there with the trekking to and from skool, and Sam great to hear you have had lots of fun on your camp - logan knows you were on camp and is looking forward to the days at his camp but not the nite times - poor thing (here I go again argggghhhh)  anyhow love and hugs to you all - I will be less on edge next time i write and all will be back to normal on our home front again by then xxxx.

hi you lot... Leigh your words  on disability are so moving i feel like the world should read them... you are a remarkable woman
and you Rory are a remarkable young man - i love the way you are reflecting on your life and the huge changes lumped in your lap...
i have done an artwork inspired by you and your story about the three little birds song Leigh... i would love to send it to you (it is only wee) please just email me an address i can post it to... i get how a catch up would be too much but this little thing is meant to be around you - interesting too how the bird theme comes up again and again - maybe the piwakawaka just showed up to tell you the puke was off flying again, somewhere else this time??

Hi Rory,pleased to hear you are back with your mates at DPS. Zane's big brothers loved it there. When you are at home one day, Zane has heaps of lego he would love to play with you and Zane's Mum would love a catch up with Mum. As I've said before Leigh, different experiences last year but very similiar in other ways with the way it's affected our family and outlook on life. We are struggling with lots of things and I will probably have to take leave from work to cope with it all.So anytime you need a play mate with 3 boys here you and Sam are welcome.
Leigh our home phone is 4355301 when you have time for a catch up Julie

Hey Rory,
It is so cool that you are back at Dargaville Primary!  It's never fun having to meet a new group of people, instead you get to be back with all your best mates.  William still talks of that school, and you are one of the kids he still talks about.  It amazes me how much he remembers since we've been over here 18mths now!
Take it easy, one day at a time.  We are thinking of you all.
