PA School Photos.

Always a pleasure to do the school photos ... not really.
I'm using all the 'pukana' fun shots for the blog .. the real deal shots you parents will have to buy directly from the school.
Senior Class: Once again, Jeston's (top row second from the right) class photo portrays him as a frumpy dumpy.

Middle Class: Rome (middle row 3rd in from the right) and her pukana, bleh.

Junior Class: Ngawizzle (middle row at the end on the right) and his haka face.

Then there were a succession of photos of the entire school together and in every shot, Rome is pulling that face and Ngawi is making that face.

If you wondered, shoes are optional at Bridge Pa School.

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!
