    Hi Michelle, Can you tell me why the caption info is funny when the post is displayed on the home page but then becomes normal again when you open the entire post? I have no idea why this happens! Hope you can help. Karina

    G’day Patrick and all the crew.
    Sounds like you are having lots of fun! You are doing a good job on your drawings. I like your Hypo! Le looks abit hungry with those jaws open. It’s good you are drawing pictures of all that you see. It will help you to remember to tell us all about your stories when you get home.
    Love you all heaps,
    G’ma and G’pa

    I LOVE the drawings Patrick!

    Hi Patrick – wonderful drawings. I especially like the tuk tuk with you riding in it, the fire fingers on your battle guy and the toucan. Well done.

    If you see anything that you think baby Michael would like could you draw it please. Michael likes cool cars – he waves at cars when they drive past. So maybe if you see a car that is kind of cool – you could draw it for us.
    Erin likes icecream. So maybe you could draw a picture of the next yummy icecream you have.

    Love Auntie Simone and the gang
