Monday, November 30


Oopsie, sorry family, have been busy and haven't had time to update Maddy's blog. Yes I do have a life outside of facebook haha!

What's been happening? After a lovely visit with Batgran it was back into the routine of things - work, school, volunteering, soccer and sorts. Matt's cousin Iasepi and his lovely wife Leone from American Samoa were in DC for a church and work conference in October, and we managed to catch up with them for a day.

At the bowling alley

At our favorite restaurant, Sakura

Our little padawan dressed up as Luke Skywalker for Halloween and had fun trick or treating with his friends Michael, Danny and Sami.

Fall soccer season has been and gone. Maddy received the award for "always giving 110% at practice and games and always being ready to play on any field, any position, and any time; great attitude!!" (more pictures on my facebook page).

Heritage Festival : Maddy played a special part in this years heritage festival. He was one of four speakers for 2nd grade and he represented Samoa in the fashion show. He did a great job and looked handsome in his ie faitaga and ofutino that Aunty Vai sewed in one afternoon. Thanks Aunty Vai!!! Next year he'll represent New Zealand so umm if anyone wants to send him an all black outfit - much appreciated :)

(by the sounds of it we need a new camera/video)

    Fanks for the update :)

  2. The soccer team photo brought back memories of all those little cuties. I hope they stick together as a team in years to come?

  3. I hope so too. Most of them are playing basketball as well.

  4. It's about time!! Can you update Micah's blog too?? I haven't even had time to go on FB.
    But it's great to see the news of what you guys have been up to. Sepi and Leone look well. I wanna go to that Sakura Restaurant - must be really good if you guys are regulars!!

  5. I can vouch that Sakura is a wonderful place! Fun and the food is great. I finally was able to eat the tidbit that was tossed to me on the third go...of course Matt and Rach did it on the first go (that shows how often they go there!!!)

  6. or it shows how big our mouths are hahaha
