After months of being indoors due to freezing cold and wet weather, yesterday was warm and sunny enough to take the kids to the park. After ten minutes of running around Daniel ran back to Grant and I, his whole body buzzing and his face alight, and declared, "I've never felt so alive! Not for months!"

It was a great opportunity to point out to him how much better he felt, when he hadn't even known he'd been missing fresh air and excercise - and that's exactly what we believe New Zealand is going to be like for him and Noah. Grant and I know what they're missing out on. They don't have a clue. But hopefully they'll come to realise that life has so much more to offer once they are there, experiencing it, and that taking them away from their friends and everything they know is worth it.
