Hey there Rory, nice to see you have been getting out and about, I've been looking over your photos of your visit to the snow, to see what you were wearing because we are having a family holiday to the snow for a few days this week and I have never been before so I needed ideas of what Korie should be wearing!  I am getting very excited!  Korie is having a day at home with me today, he has a bit of a cough that hurts, so I wanted him to chill at home with me for a bit! Ok, picture this Rory - Korie is wearing his blue thermal long johns and blue thermal skivy, dark grey snow boots and a camo beanie!!! It's all VERY tight and he looks like a skinny blue kermit the frog/stickinsect!  I want to take a photo of him to send down to you but he got a bit embarissed when I suggested that, (I don't blame him, it's a rather funny look) I'll work on that one :) Keep well buddy.Love from Kathryn and Korie xox

Hi Rory and family, you don't know me. I am a nurse from Taranaki, and have recently moved to Brisbane. Just wanted to send you good wishes for getting through this chemo. You are a very brave young man, with an amazing, strong family. My son is 8 yrs old and he thinks it's pretty cool that you like star wars as much as he does! We look forward to reading about your progress on your website each day.Take care and stay positive.

Well hello!! Today is another beautiful day!!  Kody and Ben played soccer this morning, Ben played well and got a goal!! and Kody had to play for the Black Panthers as their team was one short, against his own team!! It was a great game to watch! Kody shared player of the day with another player, nobody could decide who to choose!! so they shared the honor.  Kody felt great about it and I was very proud!!  Today I have tried to assemble a new wardrobe organiser...lets not discuss what happened to the old one!!!.... without success!  I have offically given up and am waiting for Brian to come home and do it for me!! (Brian is at a Marae near Kaikohe for a AGM).  Fingers crossed he can sort it out! The boys are getting excited about the Telethon tonight, we are making beds in the lounge and having lots of treats!! Take care and hope you are feeling okay today. xxxxxxxxxx
