Why Scouts is Still Cool

This week my 6-year-old got ‘initiated’ into Kea Scouts. For him, and his brother it was probably one of the proudest moments of his life!

Our Musical Menagerie

This was the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO) and it was to be a ‘family concert’, plus my lovely friend Chris Lam Sam was presenting and narrating. I read the info and it said the show was 50-minutes. Chris is a fantastic children’s presenter and musician, and I am keen that the kids get exposure to all different kinds of music. I thought it was worth a try and bought the tickets. Find out how we got on!
