Vast swathes of Southland are under water but fortunately it hasn't affected us too much. Tyler was most intrigued to see two black swans swimming in the middle of a paddock where cows would normally be. Part of the main road home has been closed so we had a somewhat circuitous route home.
Tyler's school closed at 12:30pm today to allow the teachers to do parent-teacher review meetings and/or goal-setting meeting with the kids. (Tyler is doing just fine). So after our meeting we went home and decided to make some mini donuts. And after scoffing a significant number, Tyler posed himself artfully on the floor in his new 'jerwy' knitted by Great-Aunt Betty :)
