    The lovely Courtney (Lawrence's American Mum) picked us up & drove us to Murray State college to visit with Lawrence. All the NZ boys were pleased to see us. The college is much bigger than we thought it would be. Big thanks to Courtney for a wonderful day.

    Sorry folks, no wifi in New London, back on deck now. Rained most of the time in New London unfortunately but we managed to have a good time.

Our accommodation was an old villa kept beautifully, shame it was so wet outside. Graduation was awesome and Andrew looked so good in his gown & cap. Went to graduation party in the arvo & met some lovely people. Andrew has some wonderful friends. Thanks to Peg, Tuckers Mom for driving us to the bus this morn.Read more

    Awesome time with Andrews mates. Graduation time, we were all very proud of him. Cleaning out his apartment, lots of laughs especially when he had to get his couch down the stairs & then dump it in the skip.
