    Hi Mitchell

    Wow, that was a big day on the back field for you and your friends had. Sounds like your teachers looked after you well.

    Good to see Dad and you got off home to pick up your dog. I am sure your pet would have been very pleased to see you and will need a lot of comfort now.

    I hope your brothers are all good too and I want you to remember that there are millions of people thinking of you all over the world, some of them are doing funny things to raise money. Have you seen the rock for sale on Trade Me?

    Please send my very best wishes to your family and friends.
    From Ella in Auckland.
