Yay summer is here, no more muddy feet and tail for me.  I have been staying away again, this wild thing keeps calling me.  I think I heard Mummy calling me yesterday afternoon, but I was too tired to get up as I had been up for the last 2 nights.

I came home this morning and woke everyone up at 5am by bouncing on the deck.  The noise carries all the way around the house.  I was rewarded with 2 bottles of milk and I looked after Josie for a couple of hours so Mummy could do some gardening.

Mummy was sitting out the back with Josie and me at about 7:15 and she heard footsteps on the deck outside the front door.  She went to check it out and there was a huge male kangaroo standing there.  I did tell him that if wanted to date me, he needed to ask Mummy first if it was OK.  So proud of him that he came to the front door.  He saw Mummy and took off down the driveway, slipping and then falling on the loose gravel.  That was not the plan.  He raced down the hill and flew over the fence and Joslyn saw him take off into the distance.

Auntie Pauline did try to warn Mummy that a male kangaroo would find me and he has.  Stay tuned for more adventures.

I am loving having a sister now. Her name is Josie. She is so little and I am teaching her kangaroo things.  She hasn't learnt how to lay down yet.  We have such long legs it is quite difficult to lay down gracefully, so we just sorta fall into position.  She loves watching me just jump over the fence of her enclosure.  She is still too little to venture out on her own.  My Mummies and big sis Joslyn sit outside a lot now watching Josie which means I get lots of cuddles and fruit/vegie treats.  Josie has been a very sick little girl but she is getting better  and loves grazing in the yard.

I am not sure that I like this being a big girl on kangaroo time.  Everyone sits outside now in the late afternoon, so Josie can play in the back yard.  I love being there but at about 5:30 I ask to leave the backyard.  Mummy opens the gate and I very reluctantly leave down the path into the bush to do my kangaroo thingy.  It makes me kinda sad that I am not Mummy's baby girl anymore and that I need to be a big kangaroo.  I can hear that Mummy is sad as well when she says bye Sammie Jo, take care and see you in the morning baby girl.  I really love my warm bottle in the morning at 6am and then I hang around the house for the rest of the day, playing with Josie and sleeping on the floor.
