Hi Rory, Leigh, Sean and Sam - wow, I've been away from my computer for a couple of days, so have just managed to catch up on what you have been up to the last few days. It sounds like it has been a very busy first few days of May. You must have a real collection of beads by now.  Rory, you have been through so much, and are so very brave - you guys really are my inspiration, I am so proud of you all - you're all doing so well. Stay strong, and remember we're all thinking of you.  Michelle and family

Hi Rory,
I have finally been able to use a computer and catch up with all your happenings. You have had so much done and have been so very brave.
My friend and I left Auckland on Wednesday night [29th] and flew to San Francisco. It was a very long flight [12+ hours], but luckily I was able to have one of the beds they have in planes and got some sleep. We had a day in San Francisco and managed to go on the BART [a very fast, mainly underground train] and a cable car to Fishermans Wharf. We wondered around there and bought a few little things, watched [and heard!] a whole lot of sea lions, and had dinner at Bubba Gump's restaraunt, which was very nice.
Yesterday we flew to Denver and then had to get another flight to Minneapolis. The reading and writing Convention doesn't start until Monday, so I am going to do some exploring very soon. Tomorrow we are meeting up with some friends and they are going to take us to their place for brunch.
Keep smiling. Love from Miss McLean.

Hi there to you all, sounds like a yucky night and we hope that everything is going well today.  It is freezing today but the sun has managed to make a show, blue sky out one window and black out the other!  Korie is going duck shooting tomorrow with his dad, he is very keen to be with the men and do blokey stuff!  He is not allowed to shoot but he loves the whole idea of being in the maimai and going camo, getting wet and dirty etc.  By the way Korie tells me that Miss Whiting has been teaching the class how to do the alphabet in sign language and he has been teaching me at home, Korie really likes our new teacher, he thinks she is very cool.
Love and wellness from Korie and Kathryn xox

Hello to you all.  What a terrible night for all of you!  I hope Rory is feeling better today and the harvest went ahead and they got all they needed.  I also hope you all get some much needed rest today!  Have your visitors arrived today??  Today the boys (and me) chickened out of going to soccer!  Way too wet and cold (I know I know we need to harden up!)  We are now all lazing beside the fire watching Stuart Little 2.  We are all very dozy!  I hope the hospital supplied something soft for you to sleep on and a blanket or two!  If not let us know and we will organise it!
Well enjoy your visitors from Baylys Beach today and we are all sending down calm healing loving thoughts to you. xxxxx
