Mika doesn’t fit her bath tub anymore so it’s just as well that she can sit up unassisted now. We only have 41 days left in New Zealand so everything just needs to keep lasting a tiny bit longer!
We watched the All Blacks walk over Australia yesterday and my friend kept admiring how much Ivan has gotten into rugby since we’ve been here. It’s true, he’s a fan, but not just of rugby, but actually of everything about New Zealand. He’s pretty much part Kiwi now and it’s a beautiful reminder to me that adapting to and embracing new things is much more pleasant and enjoyable than drama and resistance. It’s so easy to see the things that annoy us or the things that are different to what we are used to. But the wonderful things are always there too and are so much more fun to focus on.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
