Te Tinana - The Body.

Not being racist, but I don't like how much they use Maori words in her school resources. Where in the world is she going to go, other than New Zealand, that's going to have a sign to the 'wharepaku'?
It's a little irrelevant.

Traced a life size Hubs today and she drew herself then an anatomical Hubba. She did pretty good with all the organs and blood vessels in the body. I'll make a doctor out of the child yet.

Sundaes with all the bits n pieces.

She's looking impatient because I told her to wait a second for the photo.

Family Selfie.

Then Tyler got home, saw it, called us names and we had a re-shoot.

Those sundaes look amazing. I love the body idea and the double selfie.

She is sure a smarty! Also, you guys have a way better school system. We didn't do that kind of stuff till 2nd or third grade. I was sooooo bored in school. I love how much she is getting from homeschool :)

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!
