Hi guys, just keeping in touch and letting you know that we are thinking of you all. We are in the thick of calving at the moment so it is really busy, no sheep this year, haven't had any for quite a while. The next door neighbour had one last year and it is very friendly and keeps us amused with stories of what it is up to. Lots of Love from us.

hi! I feel so bad I haven't been in contact much lately. But know you are often in our thoughts. Life has got very busy for the Johnston/Woollam household. Craig and I recently purchased McKay electrical in town and are both working their. And we have begun building our home at Redhill. Our household is kept bay with these new ventures on top of Kody at High School, Ben at intermediate and Stella at primary school and Holly coming up 18 months keeps us all on our toes.
Sending love and lots of hugs to you all. Leigh you still manage to amaze me with your updates and what you can pack into life. Love you xx

My thoughts are with you all, what a time you have had over the last few months! I do hope Sean's mum is making positive progress, so hard when you are a distance away. I am so sorry to hear about you losing a precious baby, I do hope you have let yourself grieve Leigh, you don't always have to come out swinging! You are all very special people, I miss our visits at HELL Pizza together. I am teaching full time at Pukekura Kindergarten so times have certainly changed direction for me. Wishing you all the very best,
Love Sandy.

HI you wonderful parents !  I'm Liahna's and Teesha's mum, and had the absolutel pleasure of being on camp with Rory and Sean - it was heart warming and humbling to see Rory's involement in EVERYTHING - a lesson 'some' could learn from. I did not know of the milestone recently hit - just as well I may have got a bit teary myself.  I applaud how you have ALL survived clearly as a loving and 'real' family.  Rory has always returned my 'hello Rory's" over the years at IPS, which is a credit to the young fellow !
