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

Hi there,  Well after our conversation today Ispent the afternoon thinking of you all and sending the biggest bestest good thoughts your way, I feel so helpless here.  I hope Rory got to have the operation today and you are now all resting well. 
Today Poppa took Kody and Ben fishing for eels in their dam, and they caught one!  Took them all by surprise!  They brought it up to the house in a bucket and while I was taking the photo it slithered out of the bucket!  Ben got the biggest fright and ran away screaming (while we laughed!) and woke up Stella!  After the photos we set it free back in the dam.  Kody was being silly on the mound of dirt and slipped in the hole they had dug (this one we laughed at too!) Kody and Ben are looking forward to going back to school tomorrow and meeting Miss Whiting.  Will fill you in on this tomorrow.  Take care, rest up and will catch up agin tomorrow lots of love Trudi and Family xxxx

Hi Rory and family. It was lovely catching up with you all yesterday. I do hope your operation went ahead today Rory; it is horrible having to wait so long especially when you are not allowed to eat anything!

Hi there Rory,
Spoke to Dad on the phone yesterday and got me up to date with the happenings.  You are the bravest, toughest little boy I know.  I read all the articles in the paper, the boys thought you looked cool.  We have just got back from Motakawanui Island after a scary boatride home, we were lucky to get home because of the weather.  Conor caught a big kahawai, and Zack got little snapper.  We saw a photo of you in the gallery at Motakawanui planting a tree with Dad.  With luck you may be home next weekend, otherwise we are coming down on Saturday to spend the weekend with you.  Let us know if there is something special you would really like.  Good luck for the operation, we think of you all daily.  Big hugs Leigh.
Love Kay
