The reason why I put the word Olympics in an Earth shape is because almost everyone is talking about it.

I enjoyed watching the Opening Ceremony. In Australia the flag holder was Lauren Jackson. She is a professional basketball player. Lauren Jackson plays for the Australian Opals.

I like watching the Olympics. It is interesting watching the Olympians competing and trying their hardest. I have been watching some of the Olympics. The sports I have watched are the swimming events, rowing, cycling, volleyball and basketball. I am looking forward to watching the running, athletics, gymnastics and the tennis.

My favourite sport in the Olympic Games would have to be all of the swimming events. There are heaps of swimmers in Australia. Here are the names of some of the Aussie swimmers: Stephanie Rice, Libby Trickett, Leisel Jones, Ian Thorpe, Geoff Huegill and James Magnussen.

The Snow

At 6:15 in the morning on Saturday 21st of July my dad, brother and I got up to get ready to go to the snow. We went to Lake Mountain. It took us about 4 hours to get there. We went with my cousin and uncle.

When we arrived we got dressed into our snow gear and went to have fun on our toboggans. A toboggan is a sled that you can ride on snow or ice. My dad and uncle pushed us fast down the hills. It was so much fun! My friend Sophie gave us a lend of their snow clothing and a snowboard. We had a go on the snowboard and I ended up going backwards, I almost banged into people!

I threw some snow at my dad and uncle. It wasn’t snowing there so they were making snow to put on the hills. To be honest, it wasn’t that cold. It probably wasn’t for me because I was wearing heaps of snow gear. Once you started running around you couldn’t feel it.

We arrived home at 7:00. It was a fun day!

I have done heaps of fun things these holidays and I am looking forward to more exciting things. It has been pretty busy but I wouldn’t say it has been going fast.

I will tell you some of the things I have done on the holidays:

The Movies

On Tuesday my mum and dad had to go to work so my gran and papa looked after my brother and I. Gran and Papa asked us if we wanted to go to the movies to see Ice Age 4. We both said yes. We went to the Readings cinema. The movie turned out great and was absolutely hilarious. The characters were funny, especially the old granny and the little animal that adores acorns.

Charlotte’s Birthday Party

I got invited to Charlotte’s (a girl in my class) 10th birthday party. We all arrived near 5:00pm on Thursday and then had a short chat. We were going to Melbourne in a mini bus. It takes about one hour to get to Melbourne. We were going to Melbourne to ice skate. I had no idea how to ice skate. When we got to Melbourne we got our ice skates and helmet, after we got those things we had a lesson on how to ice skate. Once you got the hang of it, it was quite easy. If you fell over and your hands touched the ground your hands would get freezing cold. You skate on ice. I had a couple of falling over moments but just got back up.

Netball

I did netball on the first Friday of the school holidays. Last week Friday we didn’t have netball because it was the school holidays. This week we are though. Anyway, last week Friday I went to Skilled Stadium to play netball. I love netball. Our coach Fadge (we call her that because she told us to) broke her nose so we didn’t have a coach. When I got there Kamarah’s (a girl in our teams) mum said she was coaching. We got to play positions that we like. I was GD (Goal Defence), C (Centre), WD (Wing Defence) and on the last quarter I was GS (Goal Shooter). I almost got a goal but it went over the ring. We lost. 🙁

Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre

On Thursday my mum took my brother and I over to the Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre. It wasn’t really busy but I know why, because it’s winter in Australia. We jumped in the pool. At the Ocean Grove Aquatic Centre there is a water playground. On the water playground there is a medium waterslide, a bucket at the top of the playground (it falls when it fills up with water), a bubbly area where you sit down and it feels like bubbles are coming out, water you can swim in and heaps of water that you can do fun things with. We also swam in the pool and played fun games.

Sleepover

On Friday I went to Rhiannon’s house. We caught up there and then Rhiannon came over to my house for a sleepover and play. We watched a movie called ‘Bedtime Stories’. It was a great movie and was funny. We went to bed at 10:00. I was really tired and had no energy to stay up. The next morning we got up at 9:30 and had breakfast. We played a game called downball. I think we had a pyjama morning because at 12:00 we weren’t dressed. After we got dressed we went to the playground across the road from my house. We had heaps of fun their.

Some things I can’t wait for are:

  • Seeing Spiderman at the movies in 3D
  • Having Millie come over for a sleepover
  • Ballet

Tagxedo

At school, 4KJ (my class) has been making Tagxedos.  A tagxedo is basically just a word cloud. You can write anything in there and then decorate it. In the decoration part you get to choose the theme (colour), font and shape.

As you can see I chose my shape as Australia. I chose the colour pink of all shades because it really stands out. For my writing I did a clear font.

I did my Tagxedo about my life. I wrote my friends, what I like to eat, what I look like, the things I do at home, the people in my family, the things I like to do at school and what sports I like.

Here is my Tagxedo:

If you want to have a go here is the website: http://www.tagxedo.com/

I will tell you how to make one.

  • You go to load
  • Write the words you want in the box where it says ‘Enter Text’. You need to use commas after you write every word. Also, if you are doing a two words and you want it to go together you put this ~ in the middle. For example: brown~hair
  • When you are finished writing press submit
  • Choose your theme (colour)
  • Choose your font
  • Choose your shape
  • If you want to save the Tagxedo you press on save share print, advanced and then press the button that says (1) save tagxedo.jpg
