fishing with my bro

Today me and my brother Shelford<< Shelford's blog<< went to Point England beach to fish. We got the all our equipment ready.

Once we were all ready me and Shelford walked down to the beach. When we were at the beach me and Shelford split up me going the Point and Shelford going to the rock to get some periwinkles for bait. But I realized that we were wasting time so I called Shelford in.

Shelford asked the other lady's that were fishing if we could have some little sprats and she gave the ones that they didn't want. So I cast the line out. I then started to get Shelford's rod ready and when  I cast Shelford's line out I got a big bite and I  dropped the rod and reeled it in as fast as I could for a moment me and Shelford thought it got away but it pulled again once I got it up one of the lady's came to help. And we left at six o'clock. And my dad was happy when I showed him.

Parakai Springs

Me and my family went out to Parakai Springs. It was a one hour drive from our house in Point England.
Once we got to the pools we looked for a space to sit. Me and Shelford took our clothes off and went straight in to the water. I was expecting the water to be cold but it was warm. Me and Shelford started to bomb and that's when my dad's jumped in with my little sister Keyana.

We all started to get board of swimming so we when on the slide with the blue broads. We went on a tiresome journey up the long stairs. Me Shelford and my dad when up to the biggest slide and my other dad went with my younger sister Keyana to the smaller slide. Once we were at the bottom my dads and my sister didn't want to go again but me and Shelford went down about seven times.

When we got tied of the slide we got something to eat once we finished we went to the hotter pools inside. Before we left the pools we spent some time in the hot pools. And when we left to go home I fell asleep in the car.

six sentence story

Once upon a time, a boy named Kyal had a talent for drawing with his hands and fingers. Everyone knew him for his intelligence, he could create and was treated kindly and he was very helpful around the community. He also went to church and he knew how to show sympathy but found it hard to show empathy. He didn't even know what empathy was. So he ran away because he didn't know what it meant.
