Here in Ruralville, you learn from a young age how to make do.
Papa Greg grew up in a Ruralville too, more rural than this Ruralville.
He's a man that knows how to make do.
I said I'd take better photos.

Hubba's photo.
"Can you load it to the flog?"

I'm molding her to embrace this rural life.
The other girls in the family are a lost cause.
Maybe not Rome.
She's going to run the farm one day.

Church was great and by that I mean the naughty kids weren't in sharing time today AND the wheels are in motion to restructure the ward. Got my visiting teaching done for the month. Boom. Added 2 sisters to my list today because they never get visited and they're two sisters that need visiting.

Rome doesn't want to go to school tomorrow because of her 2 missing teeth.

Long story short, Jeston kicked one out while they were playing.
Ohhh weee, did the wrath of god come upon him tonight.
You scared me a lil bit Mitchy.

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!
