I've got to calm down

As the curtains rose. I thought "uh oh, this isn't fun." My palms sweat as I thought what if I made a mistake?

Just about time to say my line. It was like the whole world depended on you. "Um, is it time?" I walked on. The crowd stared at your every move. I wonder if they're waiting to see that tiny mistake?

I spoke my line but nothing came out. "Opps" I thought. Better try that again...

I spoke.I said it clear and calm. Everybody cheered. The chairs even clapped for me. After, I thought I could do better, but I had to focus.Then lines were spoken, now sweat wasn't a big problem.

Finally the play is just about over, I can do it. But then it hit me, if I did this 50 times better, I could raise the roof

To start our repurposing unit off, we decided to find out exactly what jobs are needed to make a product. We used a lolly called Fruit bursts and brainstormed what jobs we think are needed to make this delicious treat. We used a App called Popplet to show our work

And so it begins

"I'm so bored!" I said dragging my feet around. "When is my game starting?"

"Okay Mackenna, lets go and find your team and get this soccer game started" Dad said, as he pulled me along like a dog on a leash. Then finally we found someone in my team. Then we kept seeing people come over and just in time too, the game started!

'Tweet' the whistle squealed as the ball was kicked. There were a lot of big kicks going around and then the ball was passed to me. I thought "come on, you can do it. She shoots and she... 

Scores! The crowd goes crazy! "Oh ya!" I said, "OK Mackenna,  nice job but keep your eye on the ball." Said Dad, 'Tweet' the whistle said. Half time!

It's time

Momentum went down my spine. I was so excited but I was freezing cold." It was time" I thought.

Our car rolled in like barrels." About time" I said. I had to stretch because I felt like a crumbled up piece of paper. After a while we just waited until Something Dad said really bugged me... "We are going to wait another 20 minutes." "We are going to have to wait another 20 minutes!" "Shhh, Mackenna."Snapped Dad

"They are here!" Caridy screeched and the second she said that our friends Bridget,Mark,Willow and Ashleigh were overflown by us After a while they talked to us. All I could hear is bla bla bla. So I had to listen to keep entertained." Boring" I thought.

Going to the beach at Mokau

A cold frosty morning. The waves crashing into each other. It was really cold but we organised a special thing. This included being in Mokau. I was excited but it was freezing cold.

When we stopped we all got out of the car eager to stretch and when we got out we had to wait a long time because our friend, Bridget was going to be late! I was so bored!

"It's about time!" I thought because they're here! We had not seen them for... I don't know! But I don't care!

When Bridget, Mark, Willow and Ashleigh came out they were overflown by us. Then we had a discussion about what we were going to do, so we decided to go to the beach. So we all got in the car and drove to find a beach.

When we found one it was really cold but I did cope with it... Luckily! We all got out of the car and I was free! I ran around like a maniac and something caught my eye. A house made of big long tree trunks! It was massive! Then I went to investigate inside it. "Wow" I thought as I looked inside it.

This is when the fun ends, Mum always ruins the fun by saying this "time to go" and we did anyway. Man I was so annoyed to go, but Bridget said we will see her soon.

 On Wednesday I went to Chipmunks. Now most people don"t know what Chipmunks is so I'll tell you. Chipmunks is an indoor playground, but we need to get onto the story!

 When we arrived through the door all this momentum went down my spine as we went to pay, there sure was a lot of people! Then we had to get our socks on and then the second it was done the whole place was a madhouse.

 First I went on an inflatable slide and it was really fun. I used all my skills and did lots of tricks. Then I went to a big arena that had these guns that you fill with foam balls and I shot so many I was like a human machine gun! Finally before we left I went back to the inflatable slide and did a flip down the slide. It was very cool and scary because you were going really fast! Then after all that Mum called all of us and then we all headed to the car. So I guess that was the end of our experience at chipmunks... For now.
