Renee shared a moment

My 6 year old daughter was so excited about Matariki this year.

My 6 year old daughter was so excited about Matariki this year. She loves this celebration so so much!

This year we were invited to her school and we went and shared kai with her friends and teachers. She has been dutifully practicing (and teaching mum and dad) the school karakia as well as singing the songs they shared every spare moment. We have been making and decorating star biscuits for our neighbours, and is already thinking about what we are going to do next year to start our own family tradition on the official holiday!

I am loving seeing the wonderment and awe in her eyes during Matariki!
