School Monday.

Fun with magnets. A bit of a headache because I have to make sure all are accounted for at the end of game play. They all need to be returned when our month is over. Those resources make me clean my house. Spent a week looking for a rectangle block a few months ago.

Identifying numbers. She can identify up to 12 and count up to 14 before she starts back at one again. No sweat with colors. I called out a number with color for this game and she'd bring it to me. Similar to bingo except it took a whole hour to do 52 cards. Score 50/52. Not bad, not  bad at all.

She's pretty serious with a screw driver. We have to make something before the 20th for a carpentry project. Trying to avoid it, but she likes to remind me about how she'd like to use the hammer and nails. I'm thinking more along the lines of glue and Popsicle sticks.

May this week be carefree and without incidents that barricade the way to next Monday.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
