***Happy Leap Day Everyone***
Wow what a week don't they say if it doesn't rain it pours?
I had a call from my son last Tuesday evening saying he had hurt his arm he was playing on a scooter at school, did a jump and fell off. Went to the school nurse and thought it was badly bruised. On the Wednesday I went to his school swimming sports, he's a swimmer and was really looking forward for this day to come. He won most of his heats but his times were slower than normal and that evening he practised water polo, at one stage I saw him sitting on the edge of the pool favouring his arm. So I took him to A & E and then on to X-Ray and found out it was broken and he had been swimming all day with a broken arm, he didn't want to tell me because he wanted to swim.......Don't you just love them.....
A cast was put on Wednesday evening and he went back on the Friday evening to check that the swelling had gone down and to get a waterproof cast on as he and my dear hubby were on school camp on the Sunday morning. Number 2 son was also on camp this week so I had to start packing for all three which was a mission and a half as well as a large container of home baking. Summer, winter, wet weather and thermal gear had to be packed as the climate can change within minutes on the mountain, it was never ending.
Liam and William have gone to the middle of the North Island for school camp they are doing The Tongariro Alpine Crossing, Abseiling, Tramping, Kayaking, White Water Rafting, Mountain Biking, Camping out over night and the Hot Thermal Pools.
The Creator Lake
My youngest son is at Lake Taupo also on camp.
The middle mountain is Mt Tongariro the boys are about 100km down the road from each other. Lake Taupo is a Volcanic Lake and is situated in the middle of the North Island of New Zealand.
Ryan's group was meant to be Kayaking today.
