Yee Haa!!!! I think I read your text message about 10 times before it actually sunk in!  That is fantasic news, long may it continue!  It must be hard having to fight to get Rory everything he is entitiled to, I find it frustrating for you! 
Sounds like you are still cramming a whole lot of life into your days, wonderful.  Our lives have been thrown into a bit of turmoil with the unexpected passing of Brians Father yesterday.  To say Brians family is a large one would be an understatement, so there is a whole lot of organising to be done.  While we were looking over some photo albums my neice asked after you!  I was delighted to pass on the latest news.  I love that so many people care about you, all because of this fantastic website.
I had better get sorted now so take care and I look forward to catching up with you face to face soon! xxxxxx

hey there you totally awesome bunch of cousins, we are just so pleased that you have had such a positive trip up north and we couldnt be happier for you - well done - all the hard work this past year is paying off. Logan has had a great past 2 days with sam doing all the boy things that the cousins love to do together.  he really loved going to golf with sam and aunty heather, they ran wild at the aquatic centre in the heat of the day, and we just loved having sam overnite the boys were plotting that one all day I think - good on them.  I asked logan if he woke up early this morning by himself (not normal for him) he broke into a typical logan giggle and said nope - i got slugged by sams pillows from the top bunk (good on ya sam - well done!!!) but he was eager to get up and get going with his cousin - no complaints. the movies this arvo with aunty and sam sounded great too, you two have had an action paced few days together - lucky kids.  Hey I hear you have your new ears on now rory - you will hear everything too well now - we will have to be careful or you might hear all our bad words that slip out sometimes eh (if I were you i would start up a swear jar and make some money - i reckon!!!)  catch up soon love and hugs wendy jason logan and mikayla

Hi dee hi Gardiners, we have been to the town pool this evening for a swim, the big pool is so deep it is over my head!!  Korie played safely in the shallow, diving for dive sticks which his dad was throwing in while I swam laps. You are very important in our thoughts this week and we are sending stacks of healing light and positive vibes your way. A big embrace from the Morrisons xox

Firstly SAM.... think things through OMG blonde!!!!! tight jeans???? All I can say is think things through!!! 
Leigh I cannot imagine what the waiting has been like for you, all we can do is keep the positive thoughts coming your way.  And you can only take it all one day at a time. 
Today we went to the movies to se Fantastic Mr Fox, and by golly I enjoyed it.  It was Stellas first time at the movies, and I had bribed Brian to come along so he could tend to her if she packed it all in!  there was no way I was going to miss it!  She managed to last the entire movie, however there were a few when she threw some popcorn at the ladies sitting in front of us!!!!!!! and walked in between all of us through the middle of the movie.
Best of luck for this week,  we will be thinking about you lots.  Take care love Trudi and the Crew xxxxx

Hi de hi Gardiners, well guess what?  We have a new computer and Broadband!! Woop woop, now we can slot back into our old routine of checking in on you all every couple of days.  Firstly from Korie, "How big is your science table Rory?"  I think there could be some healthy competition going on here!!  I'm sure you will have a vast collection in no time with all the travels you go on!  Over the summer Korie has added shells, stones and bones to his table and an old green milk token he found under the house!  We had Caid at our house today so we went down to the new pool for a swim.  Now here is the great news... Korie finally let go of his nose and swam freestyle for the very first time!!  This was an amazing moment for me because Korie has had almost zero confidence in the pool and I have to say that having Caid there alongside him made all the difference.  We visited the pool twice today!!  We spent 3 nights at the Opononi camp grounds a couple of weeks ago, it was lovely to get away and Korie caught the most fish however they were ALL throw backs!!!  I havn't had time to read much of what you have all been up to because we have only been connected for about an hour and everyone wants a turn!!  Anyway our thoughts are with you all always.  Love to you Sean. Leigh, Sam and Rory from the Morrisons xox
