  1. Dear Mackenna,Ashton and Catherine,

    I'd say you enjoyed making this Vimeo slideshow, posing for the photographs, expressing the various feelings and doing the voice overs again expressing the different emotions.

    I love how you teach us about the Maori culture. How well do you speak the language. In Ireland we speak English but we learn Irish in school. Like you we learn how to talk about feelings in Irish.

    When we have learned the basic ones we learn more complicated phrases that show emotions. For example instead of saying 'I am happy' (in Irish) we might learn 'I am on the pig's back'! This means to be happy also. We think this must be an old Irish phrase and we are not quite sure why it should mean 'happy', but it makes learning Irish more fun. Keep up the good work.

    With every good wish,
    Merry Beau
