Well we gave Masaru a haircut this week. It's a number 2 on the sides and a 5 on the top. I think it looks alright. He wasn't the best at sitting still but we managed to get it all done, just!!
We also went to the beach and McClarren Falls last weekend and went swimming. We headed off to the beach first and it was sooooooooooo windy we almost were blown away. We laid all our blankets and bags down and they were covered in sand in about 2 minutes. So after a look at the water and a couple of people charging in like 'Bay watch', we decided to cut our losses and go to McClarren Falls. There was no wind there and the water was perfect. So we had our lunch there and swam for a couple of hours. Fun!!
This is Jessie. She's Haydn's girlfriend! She's originally from England and has been living in New Zealand for 4 years soon. She works as an administration person at her fathers law firm. She's thinking of either going into law or being a law executive. Her work will pay for it either way. So that's pretty good. They met at the YSA conference they had at the New Year and things have been going great since. Haydn's very happy and we'll just have to see where it goes. They swap weekends visiting each other. Last week Haydn was up in Auckland and this weekend she's down here in Tok.
Yuki's doing well and is playing with toys now. So we need to try and find her a rattle of some kind or something she can chew on. Kids love that. Masaru is speaking a lot now and can hold a decent conversation with you and tell you what he's thinking or needs. I'm sure he's finding life a lot easier and we certainly are.
Dru has been accepted into two schools so far. He has 8 more to hear from. So looks like this year is our year! I'm sure glad he persisted in his dream and didn't give up when others seemed to be telling him to. What a great example he is to me. I hope I can be as persistent in my own dreams!!
Love Dru Nakaya Clan xx
