This week Reuben brought home a shoe box from school
filled with goodies.
It was amazing, it could not have been packed
better for Reuben.

Apparently all the children at his school received a box
from a school in Blenheim.

Here he is trying out his new wheatie-elephant.

I was so touched,
there is nothing better than someone else
loving your child is there?

Thanks so much to Matthew and his family
who put this together.

It's amazing!!
