|Congrats to Jack who was selected today to represent his school in this years Maadi regatta at Lake Ruataniwha in the South Island. His mum is especially excited as she on leave in March and is busily planning her trip down to support him. I think I will be staying behind to look after the other two.|
From Wikipedia:The Maadi Cup is the prize for the New Zealand Secondary Schools Boys' Under 18 Rowing Eights. More colloquially, it is the name given to the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Regatta, at which the Maadi Cup is raced. The regatta is the largest school sports event in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 2000 rowers from 120 secondary schools participating in 2013. The regatta is held annually in late March, alternating between the country's two main rowing venues: Lake Karapiro near Cambridge (odd years), and Lake Ruataniwha near Twizel (even years).

|James and I have been overdue a father & son adventure for some time.. our time finally arrived this week and we headed off. The first stop on our weekend adventure was some black water rafting through a caving system in the Waitomo region. James breezed past the age requirement (i.e. 12 yrs) and got lots of attention from the rest of the crew.|
There were some really awesome cave formations, lots of glowworms and tight spaces. Great Fun.
