New view from my doorstep


As you all know I moved House on the 8th of March. There are still some things left in my old place that needs to be moved. Hopefully, this come week will be the last of it. This coming weekend is a long weekend starting Friday and back to school on Following Wednesday.

I sat on the steps cutting my toenails.

Looking back to the front there even was a rainbow!

The night of January 31 up to early morning February 1, 2018

Today’s lunar eclipse was the first to coincide with a Blue Moon – a second full moon in one month – in North America in over 150 years. It was also the second “supermoon” of 2018, with the moon appearing slightly bigger and brighter than usual due to its closeness to Earth. And to top it off, the supermoon passed through Earth’s shadow this morning, casting a reddish hue on the lunar surface for more than 4 hours.

After this awesome display, I woke up, got ready to go to school for the first before school care session. Opening my front door I saw the following daybreak.

That Thursday afternoon all hell broke loose over New Zealand with a cyclone battering the country.  There were King tides after the moon’s display the night before.

We survived but some people were not so lucky.

Today four classes went out into the community around the school to pick up the rubbish along the roads. The other three classes cleaned up the school grounds and nearby property borderlines.

Rubbish picked up at the roadside.

 

 

School Stories: Wild windy weather


Wild windy weather and water everywhere.

The entrance gateway had so much water children had to go round the office block to reach the before school care room.

Ella went around while Jordan and Tessa waded through the deep water.

Tessa struggled with her umbrella.

No use at all, wind blowing at 150 km ph and hard rain pouring down!

School Stories: Last sunset term two


It was such a lovely sunset on Friday, July 7, 2017.

To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.

Sun is shining.

The rainbow appears and disappears in a wink.
