Paintballing

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

Yesterday Evan’s rugby team went to paintball because they won the $1000 for selling the most number of raffle tickets. The kids had a great time. I also got to play and it was great fun. Afterwards we went to Rob’s house for a barbeque. What a beautiful house it is!!! Very cool.

Kapa haka

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Evan joined the Shellypark kapa haka event today to do some traditional Maori dancing. I think he quite enjoyed it. Quite cool seeing Handro leading the haka. I wonder if he will some day for the All Blacks! Evan quite enjoyed himself and this year he felt comfortable enough to be without a shirt. I took a video but it’s too big to put on YouTube.

Evan – Most Improved rugby player

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

We had the rugby prize giving today and Evan won most-improved rugby player of the year for his team! He was really chuffed by it!

Evan did really make big strides in his game – his first season started without him knowing how to play, but with Rob, Willie and Darron’s help, they helped him improve massively – Darron and Willie were particularly enthusiastic about the improvements Evan made.

Evan’s had a good run, winning awards for Soccer, Softball and now Rugby! 3 seasons in a row!

Evan had a great season and is looking forward to the next season again!
