My Holidays

Today was the first day back at school for term 2 after an awesome holiday. These are some of the things that I did on my holidays.

The first week of the school holidays I went to my friend Dylan’s house. At Dylan’s house we played basketball, monopoly, PS3 and we also went bowling. I had a great time. In the same week my friend Zac came over to my house. We had a lot of fun playing Chicken Blaster on the Wii. We also played soccer outside it was awesome. Then it was Easter and my family celebrated holy week. We went to church on Good Friday and made a donation for the Good Friday Appeal. On Easter Sunday my family and I, went to my DSC_0938grandparents house. First we went to my Sittie & Jiddie’s house for lunch and then to my Nonna & Nonno’s house for dinner. I got a lot of Easter eggs and ate a lot of chocolate.

The second week of the school holidays I spent a bit of time making my Lego airplane but not yet complete. I also went to my friend Zac’s house. At Zac’s house we played soccer, darts and we did an experiment by burning leaves with his magnifying glass. It worked but smelt bad! We also went to forest hill chase and had lunch.

On the last day of the holidays I had my first footy game, our team won 50-14. I was very excited!! Then my family and I went to eat dinner at a Chinese dumpling restaurant. It was the first time we ever had Chinese for dinner and I was really full. 

I had a lot of fun on my holidays. It was the best holidays so far!
