Hi there Rory, hope you are feeling better today with NO temperatures!!!!     We went shopping today at the warehouse because it is a rainy day Kody and Ben wanted to get some more colouring in books and felt tips.  Well anyway we found a cool Star Wars activity book and a Star Wars chapter book for you or your Mum to read.  Kody is really really into watching animal planet at the moment today its all about killer ants! sometimes it gets a bit scary so we change the channel!  They have started to dig the ground for the new swimming pool at Selwyn Park.  anyway have a good day lots of love from Me xxxxxx

Hey there!  Well lets hope the antibiotics sort it out!  Whatever will people think!  Rory with tattoos and mentions of cocktails and his mates tagging!!!!
Excellent to hear Rory got a game of soccer, I think the soccer season offically starts at the beginning of next term...I guess I might have to take over your job Leigh and run a few games!!! with Stella running after me crying!
It will be cool to see the beads of courage, I was thinking about them the other day and wondered if Rorys are all green?
Say hi to Bradley from the Johnstons and fingers crossed for a cool 48 hours so you get to come home! 
Take care and keep strong you are all doing a fantastic job! Lots of love Trudi and the rest xxxx

Hi Rory
Just wanted to tell you how splendid Council staff looked on Thursday when we all wore our green colour, thought of you and donated some $'s which gave us all great pleasure.
I am also praying for you (and your family of course) so you will be home soon and healthy.
You are a brave boy!!
Best Regards

Korie's Mum ( Dargaville )

Hi Rory.  We have Kody  at our house today and I noticed that both Kody and Korie were being very very quiet, so off I went to investigate...and guess what I found?  Both boys had found chalk and crayons and had written three names on the outside walls of the playhouse, Kody, Korie  and Rory!  Looks like you might be needed back up our way Rory to join a couple of very young taggers!  I guess its time to tidy out the playhouse for a sectet meeting house (no girls allowed apparently).   It used to be Korie's sisters play space but she is 16 now and it hasn't been used for a very long time.  I think I have a mission on my hands over the holidays. See you buddy xox

Morning all, well its day 6 into the holidays and every morning Korie says 'can I have a friend today?" However today he woke with a yucky nose and a bit of a cough so we are going to keep on top of that so when you come home Rory he can visit you.  I guess it doesn't help that he is running around in a pair of hammerhead shark boxers and nothing else!!  Anyway today we are washing the car, making banana cake and we might do a ride to the school for a play we hope today is a good one for you all.
Take care and love from Kathryn and Korie xox
