Easter Activity & Saturday Rugby on Friday.

8am wake up this morning for the Primary Easter Activity.
Tashy did crafts.

Here's Hubba. I didn't even dress her this morning it was too early to even dress myself properly.

Our station was cupcake decorating.

Three-Eyed mini-Jeston.

Great morning. Glad it's over and done with.
Tried to sleep some more but no one would let me so we waited around for 2pm and headed off to Central Hawkes Bay for rugby.

Once again I forgot my compact flash for my camera. Lucky I was able to borrow the MAC photographers camera (Thanks Brenda!). This allowed her to sit in the stands with the MAC supporters. My approach this year was just to shoot tackles, hits, tries and forms. The previous years I've shot the entire game in increments of 30 seconds. This shot my shutter eventually and I had to get it replaced. I came out with 99 photos today on Brenda's camera (a 550D). 79 were usable.
Here's Jeston going in for a try.

The end of the game. Cousin Everard and brother Jeston.

My thoughts on this weeks game.
32-30 to MAC. It's a team they should have beat with a score off the Richter, but errors they made through-out the game stopped that from happening. Again, I'm going to complain about the management/coaches. There are 3 coaches (now), I only hear one of them talking to their team. I have no faith in the coaches (yet) .. but I have faith in the team.
At the moment the team is all physique, no mentality. I think who coaches will make the difference.
Overall, good game, but there is alot of room for improvement. I hear their training/fitness has gone from 2  days a week to 3 days a week. I reiterate, nothing wrong with their physique ... they're in top shape. In saying that, they came together better than pre-season and I think the 22 were the right choice.

Sleep in tomorrow.

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!
