And there you have it, another entire week done. Wednesday was Waitangi Day (a public holiday) but Nick was business as usual in spending the day at the office. I was content to spend the day at home, as were the boys. Did another beach visit or two but our summer temperatures are becoming a little less reliable, with several cloudy periods in between a few rays.
Sunday evening we said goodbye to Jesse Kempf, who is slowly transitioning out of home as he takes up studies in Christchurch. I say 'slowly', because although officially he moves out on Tuesday, we are confident that we will still see much of him during uni holidays (as are his hopeful parents, Rene and Bron!). I don't envy them having their first child leave home, but it is also a blessing to raise children who are capable and competent and ready to move out into the world as a separate entity. Bittersweet.
