I got this carrot from my mum’s brother in laws’s dad’s garden. They grew a small pumpkin and peas. My cousin Erin goes there with me. She took me around the house to the garden. She showed me the vegetables and fruit. Then she showed me the carrot. I said we could have it for dinner.
We had party table cloths with balloons on and we had delightful, delicious cupcakes. Each cupcake was covered in white icing. They had a candle (red, green or purple) and some little silver sugar balls. There were 30 cupcakes and each one had ten silver balls on and each silver ball stood for one hundred visitors.
Miss Pope stood by with the fire extinguisher just in case. Mr Fawcett lit the candles and we sang a Happy 30 000 song. Then Mr Fawcett took some photos. With a powerful breath we all blew out the candles together.
Finally we went outside and ate our cupcakes on the deck. They were more than delicious, they were scrumptious. We’ll have our next party at forty thousand visitors. We can’t wait!
by Room 9
It doesn’t seem long ago since Room 9 did this last year, but I just checked and our class blog has had 29, 169 visits. It took 3 years to reach 20,000 and just 6 months to reach nearly 30,000 visits.
We have about 100 visitors every day from all over the world, but that won’t be enough for us to reach 30, 000 before we finish school on Thursday afternoon.
It looks like we’ll have to celebrate our 30, 000 milestone after the holidays. Well done to everyone who has published their writing, artwork, photos or movies. Special thanks to the Room Niners, parents and family who have commented on blog posts and an extra special thank you to all the people in New Zealand and around the world who have visited and commented.
Cupcakes all round next term! [shall we make them and bake them ourselves?]
