Hello!  Well now I hope Dad is doing a good job in charge of looking after you! I have some photos to send back with Mum I think you will enjoy them. 
Well we got to meet the new teacher Miss Whiting today, and she was very nice.  Kody tried to tell me there was no homework today but I double checked and turns out he was tricking!  We had to look up some meanings of words and it was quite hard!  I am going to check with Miss Whiting tomorrow just exactly what to do...even I couldnt figure it all out! 
I am happy to hear the operation went ahead and hope you are feeling better and better all the time.   Looking forward to catching up with you again sometime soon.  Take care lots of love Trudi and Co. xxxxx

Hi Rory,
Really good to hear that this op has been and gone and you've come out the other side again.  I hope that the pain decreases heaps now and you begin to feel stronger again.
Keep looking for the bright things in life that make you smile (like your Dad in blue shoes and a pink cap).
Thinking of you constantly
Miss Barr

Hope that operation helps. In the weekend Dad hired a wood splitter and me and Mum and Dad were out in the rain splitting and stacking firewood.
Everybody including Mum went back to school today, it was a shock to all our systems but good to catch up with all school stuff.
Thinking of you all and sending love and best wishes. Zane and Julie

Hi Rory
It was great to see you last week.  We hope you are not too sore after your last operation.  We went back to school today.  Our new teacher Mrs Whiting is nice.  Hopefully one day soon you will get up to Dargaville to have a break from the hospital.

Hi there Rory, you don't know me and I don't know you but I read about you in the Dargaville paper and wow you are one brave boy,it may take a little while but you will be better soon.  I have a 6 year old boy but he doesn't go to Dargaville school, sometimes when he gets ill I tell him to imagine millions of little spidermans repairng and fixing him all up on the inside and he gets so excited as he starts to feel better he tells me. I see by your pillow slip that you are a spiderman fan, so is my boy.  Lots of love and healing to you Rory xoxo

Kathryn (Kories mum) ( Dargaville )

Good morning Rory, Sam Leigh and Sean,  Korie was so happy to have been able to come down to visit on Saturday, I think it was possibly the highlight of his holidays along with walking the bluff track!  He was most annoyed to have to get up to go to school today, so on the way Korie and I played a little guessing game and he guessed that Miss Whiting (new teacher for room 3) would be young, blond, short, wearing trousers and that she wouldn't have a big wart on her nose! And guess what?  He was right on all of the above! Whew, no nose wart!  He also thought she wouldn't be wearing glasses however she was, but she informed us that she doesn't usually wear them.  We told her about our little game but we left out the nose wart part!  Well take care, remember to smile, laugh, embrace every opportunity and if you find the time - stop to smell the flowers...
Love from Kathryn xox
