A week or so ago, Alison got her wish with Joey arriving in Australia for a few weeks. Harri was counting down the days with Alison, and could always tell me how many days it was going to be till Joey arrived. It has been lots of fun getting to know him. The boys had great fun cooking tea with him one night.
Harri was keen to play a bit of cricket with him in the hall at home. Supposedly Joey had already had a bit of a hit with someone, so he knew a little bit about how to play and Harri was flabergasted! He couldn't stop asking 'how do you know how to play cricket Joey!!?'. Yesterday we had a BBQ lunch with them and a hit at the park which was fun.
Aaron was trying to convince Joey that Hawthorn are the AFL team to barrack for, but Alison has other ideas.
Joey is an awesome photographer. The only thing I hate is that his camera is always pointed in my face! The tables have been turned on me, and I'm not a fan of being in front of the camera at all!
It's nice to finally have met him after all we have heard from Alison about him. I know my boys will be almost just as sad when Joey leaves, as Alison will be.
