In the holidays I went to Totara Springs kids camp. Me and my friends have been waiting a long time for this . We went on Monday the 27Th of September.
As soon as we got there we rushed out of the Robbie bus. That's the bus name . When we got out we run off and started playing games. First we had to get our bags. Then we went to see our room it was big, not that big but it was nice. Were got to pick where we would sleep. So we made our beds. I was sleeping next’s to my best friend Athena.
After that we went to go and play games. The games that we got to pick was out of shooting ,golfing, bikes and .flying fox. They were all fun but I picked shooting at a target. As soon as I went to where we were going to do our shooting. I saw 2 guns and a man called Andrew standing there. I was shocked and happy at the same time. I was the 2ND one there,but first to shot the gun.
As soon as we finished playing our games, we got told that we were going to the pool hydro-slide. We were so happy. Our group ran to our room and got changed. We ran down to the hydro-slide to be first, but as soon as we got there we had to wait for leaders. So we did. 5 minters later. Ya they are coming. Then the gates opened and we ran down the steps. When the water started running we had to wait about 20 or 30 seconds. Everyone waited and waited. Then she said we could go down. It was a lot of fun. Our group was first in but last out.
After the hydro-slide we all raced to our room to get some dry clothes on. When we finished getting changed, our lunch call came out. We put our shoes on and walked over to the dinning room.
Well we all had a fun time at camp. If you ever get a chance to go to Totara Springs go you will have a lot of fun.

It’s not that they are all small.The smallest is the little spotted kiwi and it is smaller then a rugby ball.
The biggest kiwi is about 45 cm tall and as big a rugby ball.
Female kiwis are larger then male kiwis.
The biggest kiwi is about 45cm tall. It is about as big as a rugby ball. kiwis are or can grow to a certain size like 45cm of height. But as you must know that the kiwis name is The Great Spotted kiwi.
I suppose people wouldn’t call kiwis bright coloured, they only have brown rough plumage. A kiwi skin is so rough that it is not as smooth as another birds. Other birds have beautiful plumage, but kiwis don’t they only have brown dull plain feathers. The most ridiculous thing is their bill.
Did you know that a kiwi is a flightless bird. Well many people think that kiwis have no wings, but they do, they hide underneath there brown plain plumage.They also have a curved claw at the end of their wing. If a kiwi was ment to fly they will need to have a tail.
Did you know kiwis use their legs for digging their borrows and running away from their preys.kiwis have strong island legs and feet. They can alsoout run a average person.
Female kiwis lay their eggs in the borrows, the father kiwi sits on the eggs for 2 and half months. It takes 3 days for the baby kiwi to hatch, when the baby kiwi comes out it cuddles up to it’s fathers plumage. As soon as the kiwi is about 6 months old it can leave it’s borrow and travels by it’s own.
Most birds can glide through the air kiwis can’t. Some birds have nice coloured feathers, but kiwis don’t. There is even a birds that can swim under ice cold water kiwis can’t do that.
And there you have it. How could you resist a big fat, strong rugby player legged, flightless bird, which is ugly and drab?
If kiwis aren’t cool, then I don’t no what is!

As I walked in class I was ambushed by Mr Burt, I mean he told us that we had to do cross country in the cold morning. I think it was so no one would bring their sick notes.

When I found out that I was going to my aunt Libby's baby shower.I flipped out with excitement, just like a monkey.
On Sunday we went to Sylvia Park to get, new gifts for my, cousin that are going to be born.We went to T and T and the baby factory, to get some cute baby things.
We brought a pushchair and baby toys came with it for FREE!It was a bargain.I got a baby bath that, was purple with yellow dots in it. My brother brought a big bed for them, and it was blue with pink beautiful fairy's. Plus we also got a bug net to keep the bugs away from them.What would you get for a baby shower?
After we went shopping we went to my aunty's house, for the baby shower.There were a lot of people there with baby things, the clothes they brought was so lovely,and good looking. All of my cousin eat all of the chocolate on the table, but they had a lot of fun. My big sister put on a lot of fun games for us.The sports were diving for apples, swimming races ,paint my face, and a ran way for dogs.
My sister asked all of her friends if she was free on Sunday and they said yes.She said if they can help out , could they bring there dogs.
When the games were finished, all the kids had to get inside to open the presents we all brought..The first gift she opened was, from my other aunt.It was a set of drawers.At the end my aunt Libby started to cry.Tears of joy.
After the baby shower treats were opened my aunty's water broke inside her tummy. The ambulance came they took her to the hospital. Now the babies are out they are breathtaking.
If you have not been to a baby shower it is a lot of fun. When a person in your family have a baby shower go to it.It will be lot of fun.
