What’s shaking on the farm

Auckland Sunset by you.Stunning Auckland sunset from our lawn, staining the sky tower bright pink IMG_6245I have been trying to get a pic of the lights at night since we moved in, this picture sucks but at least you get some idea of the fabulous view.

There is a new boy on the farm and his name is Jim.  He is a beautiful 18 month old boxer and he is figuring out how he fits in with Scooby and Louie.  There have been a few scraps but things are settling down and as you can see, Jim is quite fond of us – he would not get out of the car yesterday when we were leaving!

Ethan and his Daddy get to ride to kindy together every morning, they love heading off in the truck together, it’s their own stinky, diesel-y boy time and Ethan loves it.


After seeing his Daddy catching chickens Ethan began to practice Chicken-whispering himself.  After a few fruitless chases, he got his strategy sorted out and was so proud when he captured his first hen and safely returned her to the run.
