Today after coming from the point England school I saw my friend Simeon walking through the alleyway when we drove passed I waved at him and he waved back. The alleyway was close to my house so I just walked there. When I walked there he asked if I want to go with him, so I told him to wait at the end of the alleyway because I was going to ask my dad, I ask my dad if I can go with my friend, he said "only if they drop you back home" so the was a yes because they were going to drop me home.
So first we went to pick up sale, then we to the fenchruch to get some hot chips.

So we just went to the park, they were going to drop me off but my family already came to the park with the car and went with me home, and that was it.
Today we made bird feeders as part of our wastewise lesson. We have been learning to reuse, reduce and recycle. We reused the bottles to feed the birds. Then we will recycle them once the birds are finished.
How did we created them? So we got one big bottle with no water. Then when you got the bottle you get a ice cream stick and poke a hole in it and leave the two sticks in it.
When you have done that paint the bottle how ever you like to attract the birds...
After open the bottle lid and pour seeds into it, then you put some strings and hang it on a tree.
Today I had a hair cut.
If you guys didn't know, I hate getting my hair cut. Why you ask? Because I get lots of hair cuts after 3 or 4 weeks. If you were me, you would hate getting hair cuts.
I also don't like getting hair cuts because my dad takes so long doing it.
So that is why I don't like getting hair cuts.
Monday the 13th of February 2017 me and my family went to the bush.

After feeding the ducks we went for a walk. We walked around the block.
Well I was walking through the bush I breathed in the air it felt like I was drinking a whole glass of cold water.
When that was done went to becasue the beach was right next to the bush.
So we walked through the beach my sister Dora had no shoes on, we saw this big big block of mud was in the ground so my sister walked it because if we walk back we will take even longer to walk to the car, so when Dora stepped into it her leg sunk into the ground but not her whole leg just half.
Luckily we made out of the mud with out getting stuck. So we walked back to the car, and drove back home.
