           Happy School days to you....

Sitting at your incubator Matilda Betty talking about " one day this little fighter will be going to school"
 and here you are.......
and what did you choose as your leaving song? THAT RUGBY SONG known by your cousin Maia as The Natural Panther. Yes you too chose the national Anthem and Anike said What is it with the van riel Whanau and the NZ Anthem....Hmmm I ponder and can only come up with the fact that all the children were unified in singing it...Good choice MB.

The story you chose was a singing story called Up Up Up.

 Look at you in your crown.
 So here, on your first school day, along with your little brother Oscar you were transported to the bus where your little friends were waiting.
 Cousin Isabelle said you were so good on the bus. Like a little ant you were, walking down the narrow aisle to your seat.

and look its Mr Holland who is the driver of the bus .Yeah
Happy school days Matilda Betty big girl.

The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one's life, but rather a legacy of character and faith. B Graham

              Ra Whanau Matilda
No Needs for words.....
Who came running to answer the call a little girl in a fairy gown

In a little nook in a little wood a little 5 year old had a fairy party

with a little brother to help celebrate 

and a little harvest picnic

with a little group of friends

and a little group of family

oooow A goblin a gobbling berries

a little patch of berries

and a little teepee by a little stream

with little bunnies in their hidey holes

a little lot of colour (oxymoron)

a little party unfolded it's wings...

The most lovely presents and Matilda waited till all the presents were collected up so she could open them whilst everyone watched and she could thank everyone personally...

Teaching your child gratitude is like teaching manners both qualities will help them through life . Mum

A magical flower ,white with a tiny blue gem in each centre

magical shoes

such a happy child

In a magical and enchanted nook...

full with fairies

and funny witches and hob goblins

and an elf on a bike

A singing snow white

where sweets fall from the sky

and parcels are passed ....

where marshmallows and camper damper roast

and a grateful party girl takes time to thank all her friends for her gifts...

and finally a wish is made ...

and you know what Matilda Betty...

Our wish was granted too....
YOU REACHED FIVE  and made us all very very happy.......
