She needed something more than basketball. After seeing a cousin post a question about Brazillian Jiu-jitsu a few weeks ago, for his daughter, I asked him how it went for her. He said they didn't make it through the door. She flat out refused. So I schemed a plan and told Hub's that Asha was doing it and he told Asha that Hub's was doing it.

It was a match made in Brazillian heaven.

It's pretty amazing and if anything, it's a good way to burn off some energy.

Pretty cut about the quality of the photos. I haven't carried my camera around with me for a while and I relied on the phone camera photos of others and they had Samsungs ... enough said.

We need more of our own in there. Sitting waiting for it to begin today more far-now showed up to trial their child. So that's three for Bridge Pa so far.

It's bedtime.

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!
