Scott does the best job of recapping what we have done but I did want to throw in a penny or two...hell, maybe three! NZ has been a total kick! We have been so lucky to meet some great people and see some amazing things. As you can see from the pics, Auckland was a scream. We are lucky to say that we will be able to spend a few more days there before we have to head out on the 8th of Feb. Caluzzi was a scream! I have laid out an open invite to all the girls there to come for a visit! WAtch out MIrando, you might have some guest performers for Baton Rouge and to help out in New Orleans. Not worry, we will get them all hooked up! So far though, the highlight was the Rock-N-Ropes jump swing! I thought I was going to either cry like a girl or crap my pants...it was that scarey. I wasn't even going to do it but I thought to myself "Self, what if you walk away and wish you had done it?". So, that did it and I signed on. SO SCAREY!!! BUt totally worth it. I am so glad that I did it!

I also can't say enough about the Mauri village experience. I was just the coolest thing to watch and be a part of. They have a very rich tradition and love to share it.

We are in Nelson now and will be moving on to see the South island for the next week and a half or so. Eventually, we will end up in Christchurch for and SCA event (should be very cool) and then make our way back to Auckalnd for a few days (hopefully we can track down a place to watch the Super Bowl). More will come then!!!! I love you guys and miss everyone very much! PLEASE EMAIL WHEN YOU CAN. WE LIKE TO HEAR FROM EVERYONE AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. Its sort of like being home.!

Peace, Rach

P.S. I MISS MY BOO!

Hey, checked out your video....I'm so glad you did it.

As for Boo, just let me tell ya....I think he may be pregnant...LOL...to date he has eaten flour tortillas (yes, again), sliced bread, biscuts from Cracker Barrel Restaurant(can't blame him there), jalapeno cornbread (ouch!!!...poor Boo) feta cheese, and some marinade for fajitas. Ole' Boo has been a bad bad kitty, but he is doing great and lovin' life with his new buddies, rather partners in crime...oh yeah...he likes to wake me up purring and giving me the happy paw massages during the wee hours of the am...but we love having him...take care.

Hi
Hey guys. Glad to see that ya'll are having fun.

Things go on as usual here and your stories sure do add a bunch of fun into our swamp ridden lives ;)

Melisant & I found out Friday that Erik will be getting a little sister. We'll be naming her Elizabeth... right along with me getting neutered! (this is NOT going to happen again!!!)

Take care and be well. We miss you both and look forward to hearing all your stories when you get back.

Way to Go rachel!
I was able to watch your video with no problem, so keep doing it the same way. It works! I see those Keane genes shinning through.
