Esther's birthday Party


My friend Esther Sonneveld had her13th birthday party on Friday 16th to Saturday 17th April.
On Friday night Mums and girls presented scrapbook pages to Esther, and stayed for dessert and a movie - Facing the Giants.
Then most of the girls stayed the night and the Mums went home (as did I).
I got up WAY to early the next morning (about 7:30 I think) and went to the Sonnevelds' who waited for a few more girls to arrive, and then had breakfast.
After breakfst were HEAPS of games - Truth or Dare, in which we rung a chinese shop and asked "Do you do take-aways?"
"What's 9 take away 5?"
"Uh, I dunno"
and a few others.

In teams, wrote a story about Esther ONLY by clipping words and phrases out of a newspaper.

Late morning, after the cake:

we all piled into the van, and went tenpin bowling.

Next came lunch - rolls, ham, luncheon, etc...

Then more games and activities including splitting into teams (again), and making dresses for one person in each team from rubbish bags, toilet paper, and sellotape..

After HEAPS of games and fun we all got dropped off at about 5pm.
Better get ready for Girls Rally Break-up evening...

Go back a little bit to March, the 17th to be exact.. after a homeschool picnic, I went to Miriama's house, as did the Sonnevelds...and this goth popped in with her friend to say 'hi'....

Well, yes actually, you're right.. it's my friend Esther and I, with a lot of make-up on...!

Anyway will get on to the next post now..

Bryce's "Teasle"

Well, my friend Anne Roos got a maltese dog earlier this year, whom she named "Teasle."
And when Bryce saw this soft toy at the $2 he yelled "TEASLE" and insisted Mum buy it for him:

 Anyway better go do flute practice and organise food to take to the Papakura Ribbon Day tomorrow (for athletics)

Hi Again,

We joined a homeschool sports club that was started in  term 1 this year (Homeschool Sports Auckland South to be exact i think) which did three weeks of sailing at the local sailing club.

I went out on one the boats once, but decided not to go out again.
Lined up being given instructions, etc, before
going down to where the boats are.

Looking through the trees down onto the water

Playing games while waiting to go on the boats

The one in the pink hat is Monique, I'm in the black cap,
 holding the rudder.

wierd picture of Monique - she looks like
Thompson and Thomson from the
Tintin comics! =)

Athletics Fun Run


On the 23rd of February this year, we had the 2009 - 2010 season Fun Run. This is when all us athletes find sponsors, then run as many laps of the 400m track as we can in one hour.
It results in many tired and sore people, but is heaps of fun!

Danielle's Group ready to start

Danielle, unknown, Katie Joy Aiken

Really bad photo of me............

Lined up accross finish line to
 put a mark on people's arms to
show how many laps they have run.
We have the next fun run coming up on the 7th of December for the 2010 - 2011 season. Lots of training needed, i think!
