Warming up, just looking around at the puffed red hot faces drooling like dogs. Feels like eels swimming in my stomach. Walking up to the starting line. Clap as the two wooden blocks smack together. The noise of everybodys feet tramping like a stampede. Trying to get a good spot. All the girls trying to not get stomped over. All of us competitive while everyone else sits on a big roll of tarpaulin cheering us on. The teachers all around the cross country course pointing to us where to go. As we pass Mr Mangan on our second lap it makes me feel good. “One more lap,” I say thinking to myself. As I get to the cones I sprint. Running up as fast as I could. I feel so proud of myself because I did it non stop. As I sit down my face is brighter than a big round tomato.
My favourite toy is a Playmobil castle because it has a draw bridge and a jail and a secret passage wall. You could bring it on vacation because it has a red handle. My mum paid $5 at a garage sale. Then I had to do jobs to earn it. If you buy it on the internet it is $144.99. That’s a lot of money!
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.
In the weekend I went on The Toy Run. I took Elmo on the back of my dad’s motorbike. We went to Cambridge in the car. Then I came back to Hamilton on dad’s bike. Dad’s bike is a yellow Ducati. Yellow is his favourite colour. One of dad’s friends gave us another toy just before we got to Garden Place. It was a purple and yellow Mushabelly. The badges were $10 to buy. They were in a box. Anybody could buy one and the money was given to Child Cancer.
Room 11 have had a special visitor in class for nearly two weeks. Rohi the Kea came all the way from Auckland and is now moving on to Raumati Beach. You can read about her and her further adventures at this shared blog – Rohi’s Travels.
In the summer holidays I went to Rarotonga and I got Rarotonga money. It’s triangle shaped money. Mr Fawcett said he had never seen any money like it before. Rarotonga money is way different to New Zealand money.
