Home again.

I have a headache after a 6 hour drive all the way home. I'd been telling my nieces to beat up their brother the entire trip. I kept telling them that they're both too scared to beat him up and so he keeps being a smart ass. That streak ended today when I watched Shaily jump over the back seat, through the rear view mirror, and pound on Brother 1's only son. Their Dad would have stopped the car so quick to protect his son then tell us all it was our fault and not the boys.
I pulled over to the side of the road and flicked on the hazards to watch the phenomenon.

Recognizing the round about that leads us home after being on the Napier expressway, we hear from the back seat.
"My house lives here!".

Glad to be home now. I love home.
Missed church today where Ev was called as the new Bishop of our ward. I must remember not to swear around him, if he remembers to do the same ;) Great news for the family. I wish we all could have been there to support, but I was dodging Primary Presentation that got postponed last minute for Stake Business.

... and here's Bebi watching the Kiwi's haka last night.

Two of my brothers and their wives were at the game. They said it was awesome to be there and posted pic's of staying around afterwards and getting to touch/meet some of them. They did another haka for the fans afterwards that was great too. They said it was a close game and the last 5 mins was just a little bit of an anxiety attack in hopes for NZ to win. I wish I was there.

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!
