Ethan goes to work!

I have been on a Fitness Instructor course for the last 6 days so Ethan has been having adventures with everyone else.  He went to work with his Dad for two days and loved it.  He fixed boats, got greasy hands, and complained that he didn’t think that they did enough work each day!

An Extra Birthday Surprise

Mum organised a secret visit for Ethan to meet one of his favourite TV personality’s; Geoff Thomas.  Geoff has a TV show that screens on Saturday afternoons called “Outdoors with Geoff”-  catchy aye?  Geoff is a bit of a legend fisherman and hunter and Ethan studies his shows like he is going to be quizzed on them.  So it was pretty awesome that Mum, Dave and Ethan got to go to Geoff’s house and have a visit;

Happy Birthday Ethan!

What an exciting day, you woke up this morning with absolutely no idea that there would be presents there.  Poor darling, you thought you had slept through your party and your friends had left their gifts in the lounge for you!

Your favourite toys of the morning were the two Nerf pistols that shoot our foam darts, this was a surprise as we thought Transformers would definitely consume all of your attention.  Grandad gave Daddy the day off work so we were all together on your birthday.  We listened to the radio in the morning as there was a special Happy Birthday Message from Nana and all of the puppies, you couldn’t believe how Lou-bear had managed to tell the radio man that it was your birthday!

You wore your new spider man outfit all day until it was time for your party.  We had a wonderful time with all of your friends, Nana, Grandad, Hadyn and Aunty Karen and cousin Jake.  Happy birthday big boy, we love you so much!

The Kindy Crew

November 380

Harrison, Leon, Ethan, Jasper & Isaac. 

Cheetah print is really ‘in’ at Kindy and the fight for the cheetah leotard goes on everyday.  Ethan is the biggest so usually gets his way, Leon  is happy with what the teachers fondly call ‘The Boy George Suit’.  The Cheetah leotard has become so hotly contested it might actually be going to an early retirement as everyone is sick of dealing with little boy tantys about who got it first!  Ethan is all of a sudden very concerned about being on time to kindy, and aims to beat Jasper to the dress-up box every day.  Strangely it is only the boys that seem to have this strange affectation for animal prints and lycra!

Spring is springing and spiders are everywhere, Ethan is particularly fond of spotting an obscure breed he calls ‘Long Daddy’s’, comprende?

He turns 4 tomorow and received a Star Wars Lego from his Nana Vicki.  He loves this toy, called the rebel speeder. It came with four guys, the Rebel Forces, but Ethan affectionately calls them the ‘Rebel Sports’.  I guess they are sponsored by NZ’s largest sporting good store?
