My Doggy Maya!

It all started a few months ago, when my aunty and uncle moved down to their new house in Papakura. They slept by their selves for a few nights until the day that someone broke into their house and stole their TV. My uncle was gone to his parents house and my aunty was at work, an unknown person broke into the house because my uncle had accidentally forgot to turn the alarm on before he left. So when the burglar broke into the house the alarm couldn't warn the neighbors. A few weeks had passed since the first theft. It was Wednesday when everyone was at work, but luckily our neighbors that lived across the road were home. The neighbor shouted at the burglar and he swiftly ran away. Our neighbor called the police and the police warned my aunty. From then on my aunty was very suspicious about locking the door at night and when she would leave the house.

One day my aunty got a call from her brother in law and he said "My brother is moving out of his house and he has a dog named Maya, he is not allowed to keep her there so I was wondering, if you would like to keep Maya?" My aunty was filled with immense happiness. When I heard the news I was very eager to meet my new doggy! Finally the day had come to meet my new bundle of joy. It was well after school had finished and my aunty and I were driving down to Papakura to meet Maya! As we pulled into the drive way we heard this thundering bark, it sound like a full grown male dog, but when we looked through the bars of our steel gate, we could see that the dog was still a puppy that was nearly grown up. At that very moment I filled with immense happiness, because I couldn't get over how adorable she was.

As I walked through the steel gate, Maya was beaming with happiness. As soon as I stopped walking, Maya jumped up on her hind legs and started to lick me very intensely, I nearly lost my balance. I was very proud to have Maya because I had never had a dog before. I was sort of scared of her because she was quite big. Maya is a Labrador crossed with a Staffy. I really love her but at times she gets very smelly and I have to wash her and then dry her before she gets a cold. I love taking her for walks, especially when we walk past other houses and they have dogs that bark at Maya, but Maya just keeps on walking. Maya is so well behaved around other people and dogs. She is a very energetic dog and needs a lot of exercise. I love her to bits.

My EXTREME Memory!!!!!!!!!

My favourite memory was when I got to meet my cousin named Patrinah. She lived all the way in Australia. I'd never met her before until that day. We used to talk to each other over the telephone and  we'd stay up for hours talking to each other, and when she finally came, we had the longest hug ever. It  was so exciting getting to meet her because I'd been waiting to meet her my whole life. She lives in Brisbane which is along the eastern coast of Australia. My nana went to pick her up from the airport around six o'clock, and when they got home, I was so shocked because she was 13 years old but she was as tall as a door. When she trotted through the door she had to duck under the door frame.

When the weekend swung around my aunt, uncle, brother, Patrinah and I went to Rainbows End. Patrinah was so happy because she had never been to Rainbows End before and she always wished she could go to our theme park. When we arrived at Rainbows End, Patrinah and I rushed to the queue and waited to pay for our tickets. While we walked through the gates it felt like heaven because I hadn't been there in a long time. My uncle, aunty and brother went to one family attraction called The Log Flume. So Patrinah and I happily trotted off to another attraction.

The first attraction that we went to was the pirate ship. When we got on Patrinah and I felt sort of scared because we had never been on the pirate ship. Suddenly the ship started to rock, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, until the ship got to it's highest peak. The ship stormed down and both our stomachs dropped. When the ship stopped my head was so dizzy, it felt like my head was in the clouds. The biggest and scariest ride that we had ever been on was the stratosphere. First we went onto the less extreme. We rode the less extreme a few times then we moved onto the FULL EXTREME. When the stratosphere started to swing my stomach felt liked it had butterflies in it.

When the day ended I was sad but my happiness grew more and more, everyday!!!!!!!

Back At School!

Back At School!

The school holidays are finally over, and we are back at school now. We are past halfway through the year. My favourite days in the holidays was the 14th and the 15th of July. They are my favourite because I went to my friends birthday and had loads of fun. We went to the Stardome on one day and Gravity on the other. It is going to be a busy term this term, we have lots of hard work to do, and we are also going to be doing my favourite sport too, NETBALL! In a few weeks time we are going to have Inter-school netball, it's going to be great fun. 
My maths goal this term is to learn every single multiplication tables from 6-12.

The Best Book Ever!!!- Inna Furey

This term Riiana and I read a story called Inna Furey. The story was about a girl named Inna Furey that had two personalities. Inna had a personality of a bird and of a girl. At school Inna was getting bullied. Leanne had noticed it but hadn't done anything. Later on in the book Inna had gone missing. Leanne lived by a reserve where all the kids from school played. One night she wanted to go exploring in the reserve because that is where Inna had gone missing. She found Inna on the rope swing that was hanging from the tree.

St. Kentigern Sports Day!!!

Today we had St. Kentigern students come to our school. They play a few games with us. My team warmed up with a little game, the game we played was a game where you had to find a partner, and try to touch each others knees, the other person had to try and jump away before their knee or knees got touched. After that we played a game of soccer or football. One of the games of soccer that we played had one ball then our coach from St. Kent's threw another ball into the game.

It's fun having St. Kent's at our school, we are so lucky and thankful!
