Raking Hay

Today I drove the tractor with the help of my Granddad to rake hay so that it will dry ready for baling on Monday. It was lots of fun and hopefully on Monday I will also get to bale the hay. Hope its not to hot because I will be outside all day.

Shearing Shed Floor

Yesterday I helped build a shearing shed floor. We cut the timber to the right sizes and then I helped Dad nail it to the floor joist. Each piece of timber had to be 10mm apart to form the grating floor. It was real fun and I enjoyed helping Dad.

On Tuesday we had our end of year assembly and year 6 ceremony where we had to say a small speech. We were also given a badge with the school logo on it, and a photo of us year 6's. We sang Christmas songs and had supper at the end.

Mega Milk Top Kids

On Monday I went with my class to Mega Milk. It was really fun and there were lots of activities. My favourite was the one where you had to hold a bucket of water on a flat surface and run with it around an obstacle course. At the end we had to pour it into a tube. We had a water fight at the end of the day.

Our Bull

He is five years old and is a Hereford. He has many "children". He is very quite and loves to have a brush and cuddle. He is like a guard dog because when strangers come he bellows really loud. He weighs over 1000 kgs so mind your toes when you are up close.

Nelson Lakes

We went up to the lakes a couple of weekends ago and it was really hot. The lake was quite full from all the rain we had had during the week. While we were there having lunch, this tourist guy got his camper van stuck in the gravel. He was there for about half an hour trying to get out . In the end people from Kiwi Experience bus came and helped. At the end the Kiwi Experience driver got him out. It was very entertaining.

The penguins we saw at the Antarctic Centre were all refugees. One had a new beak made out of fibre glass, one was blind, one had a bad wing, one was caught in an old fishing net and had to have its leg amputated. One was called Elvis and it was a girl. When they feed the penguins they record how much each one has eaten and they have 2 (or 3) meals a day.

Tram and Gondala

In Christchurch we went for lots of rides on the Tram which took us around some of the old buildings and down lots of side streets. We could get on and off as many times as we liked. Also we went on the Gondala where we saw all of Christchurch and Littleton. In the distance we could see a train which went through a tunnel.

Antarctic Centre

In the holidays we went to Christchurch and visited the Antarctic Centre where we saw the penguins being fed and some of the new penguins have little shoes on their feet so that they don't get sore when walking over the small stones. We went in a blizzard and it was really cold and loud. We went on the Hagland which was a bit freaky but fun.

I now have 100 hits on my blog, yeeeee haaaa horrrray. Have finished our science projects and are now doing wacky hats for the school country fair. We are also starting our masks for the mask parade in a couple of months. Can't wait for the school holidays so I can have a bit of a rest from all this activities!!!!!

our lambs have arrived and they are really cute. We mainly have twins and the poor mothers have a problem when one twin goes one way and the other goes another way. We have another 12 sheep to lamb and are waiting for our old pet sheep to have hers. Can't wait to see them all running around the paddock. Will put a photo on soon.

Dairy cows

This is a photo of some of the dairy cows that come to stay at our place every winter. They are Jersey cows and they will go home in August to have their calves and to start milking. They live in Takaka and travel on a stock truck and they do get travel sick sometimes.

The stoat

My cat brought in a live stoat which we had to chase around our lounge while my cat watched. It ran around the lounge and hide under the couch. It screamed really loud. My cat must be really brave (or stupid). I hope she doesn't bring in another one.

Last week was my birthday and I got some cool presents. I got a big box of Lego and are half way through building some of the things from it. I even got some chocolate but that has now gone. And no Miss K I didn't get a new hat... !!!

Log Truck Ride

Today I went with my dad in his log truck. We went to the Owen which is near Murchison. I had to get out of bed at 4.30 am to be on the road by 5.00am. Later in the day we did a load from Rabbit Island. It was lots of fun but I forgot the camera.

Today at the movies

Today mum and I went to the movies to see Pirates of the Caribbean and it was very funny in some places and a bit boring in some parts. The poor British ship got bombed by 2 pirate ships and ended up in flames, that was really neat. It went for 3 hours. I cant wait for the DVD to come out.

We are on TV

I have just seen me on TV. REAL COOL. I saw mum in the back ground. I asked Rod a question which he answered with a laugh. It was really neat to speak to someone on the other side of the world who I didn't know.

Interschool X Country

Today we did X Country. When I raced there were about nearly 50 kids running at the same time. I think i came between 10 and 20. I was the 2nd Appleby person to cross the finish line. I was really tired at the end.
