So, here's what we've been up to. After our South Island trip, it was back to real life here in Gisborne. Which is, admittedly, a pretty sweet life. Liz and Elias finished up the year of school. That deserved a cake! We spent a lot of time at the beach and the rugby pitch. Summer finally gave way to fall, with the leaves changing color and the temperatures dropping. And we made a trip back to Taupo to catch up with friends (and do a little work).
The next big thing was our trip back to the States; I'll post more pics and barely witty comments on that one in a couple days.
