Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!
Monday night tama 2 had to arrive at the Cub hall slightly earlier so it was rush, rush, rush!! It's really hard for everyone to eat at 4.30pm during summer, but oh well, it's best to have something in their puku to get them through. I made sure he ate with an hour's digestion. It also meant tamāhine 1 had to be dropped off at St John's early. She took The Hobbit to read while she waited. (Speaking of The Hobbit, tamāhine 1 and I can't wait for class to start on Friday NZ time.)
Anyway, this is how our Monday nights go: Tama 1 and tamāhine 1 get dressed for St John. Tama 2 is dressed for Cubs. Tamāhine 1's session starts at 5.45pm so she gets dropped off first. There's just enough time to get from Pererika Street to the lakefront to drop tama 2 off. Tama 1 is dressed for his St John session and goes with everyone. Whaiāipo and tama 1 sometimes go into the Cubs session, otherwise they go to the library. It's a good bonding time for dad and tamariki. Then, at 10 to 7 whaiāipo drops tama 1 at St John. The St John squad (Penguins and Cadets) do parade before tamāhine finishes for the night. Then it's back to the Cub Scout hall to pick up tama 2 at 7.30pm. Whaiāipo brings the two kids home and has a five minute rest before returning to the city to pick up tama 1 at 8.30pm.
Thanks for dropping by
