Putting up a new archway

On Sunday this weekend we went outside because mum wanted to put up a archway in our sitting area. The archway mum wanted to make from a old insulator pole that had been on our farm for 20 years. It was so heavy even dad couldn't lift it up so he picked it up with the tractor and put it on the chains and lifted it over the fence. The insulator that were on the poles date back to the 1960s. The pole was way to long so we had to measure it with a measuring tape and cut it, we dug two holes in the area and put the poles in then dad put the insulator on top. After we had finished the final result was great and mum planted a couple of plants around the poles and then mum had a big rose growing next to the poles where we had put them in so she got a piece of rose and tied it to the archway so it would grow over it.  But while we were putting the poles in I found a massive worm and took a photo with dads phone. Have you ever built anything?

Here is a photo of dad while he was bolting in the insulater at the top so it would be stable and hold for a long time.

Here is a picture of the big worm that I saw when we had to dig the wholes we thought it was about the size of a pencil because half of the head was in the ground.

Here is a picture of the final result and we added a sign and nailed it up. It say Beware cables below so it would look vintage.

Here is a picture I took of the certificate that I got for the best year 5/6 five and six blog that they judged.

The Moa awards, the Moa awards are a series of awards that you can enter in and win prizes. The Moa wards aka the Moa Klusted is made from 4 different schools Opunake school, Matapu school, Kaponga school and of course Auroa Primary School. The event has only been going for two years and it is the second year now last year I did not get into any categories but my sister Madaline did and she won with her educational video last year. But this year it was different I entered in 4 (four) categories and the four categories I entered in were my music video that I done with Bethany, Caro and Jorja ( myself ) the next one I entered in was original image and a educational video with Jayden, Rico, Mackenna, Caro and Me. The last one I entered in was my school class blog. The categories you want to enter in get put into one big folder within the four schools in the categories. After all the entries are in the folder they get sent to judges all over the world and they judge our entries they then choose the top four entries and my Minecraft group with the educational video were lucky enough to get in the top four also I was luck enough to get in the top 4 year 5/6 five and six school blogs. When I got to the Moa awards last night on the 10th of November. The night was packed and everybody from the community came to the Opunake event centre where the Moa awards took place. When you got there you had to give your ticket to Mr Chittenden our school principal if you would like to go in. Because of the amount of people going there were 700 people isn't that a lot. We had to sit in our School groups and we had four areas set up for each school. Mr Bloor a very talented filmer from Auroa school made all the video and editing for the night he was also so busy helping everyone at our school film there videos. There were lots of amazing entries but there could only be one winner in each category....... Who will it be? Will I win? here comes the blogs I said to my friend Caro the top four people were all from our school and in room3 ( my class) Ebony, Mackenna, Caro and Myself and the winner is Jorja Symes. I was so happy I walked on the stage and got my certificate and trophy. Next up was the year 7/8 seven and eight blogs the four people were Madaline (my sister) , Kyah, Emma, and Meg and the winner is....... Madaline I was cracking up laughing because I just won the blogs for my year and she won as well I was so happy for Madaline next up was the educational videos for year 5/6 five and six come on guys I said to my friends who made the video with me we were all crossing our fingers hoping we were the winners, and the winner for the educational video is Minecraft water tower. WE WON we all went up and got our certificate but the problem is that if you are in a group and you have lots of people it will not be fare to keep the trophy yourself so our teacher and school puts it into our trophy container the last awards was up the supreme winner all over the night and it goes to Auroa Primary School The bum race made by Kyah and her brother Duran Bloor we got a massive trophy and Kyah and her brother Duran got a T.V. I had a great night and it was amazing that I won in the two things I entered in. Have you ever won any awards? Did you go to the Moa awards? These are all the questions I'm asking myself comment below and let me know the answers to these questions!!! If you would like to visit the Moa Kluster page click on this link here-Moa Kluster

The bonfire

Here is the big fire that one of the people at the bonfire set up.

This picture I took when Katelyn my friend was holding a sparkler in her hand I took the photo on my iPod.

Here is a picture I took of Renee another person who was there holding a marshmallow that she had just toasted in our little fire. 

Here is a picture I took our little fire that we made.

On Friday night I got invited to stay the night at my friend Kateyln's house and we went to a bonfire on the Rama Rd in Taranaki. When it got later in the night at the big fire we lit sparklers and we also roasted marshmallows on a little fire we were stocking up. At night time when it was really dark my friend Katelyn's dads mate Ricky put some fireworks on and we watched the fire works there were all sorts of fireworks and different colour's ,but  the reason why we put fireworks on and we had a bonfire because we were celebrating guy forks. We lit the fireworks at 8:30pm at night and when we went home at 9:30pm at night they were still going and the big fire was almost gone out we had lots of things at the bonfire including someone brought donuts and cinnamon rolls to share and we had biscuits. We brought chairs and sat down to watch the fire works. Do you celebrate guy forks? Do you lite fireworks or have you ever? These are questions I'm asking myself comment below!!! And let me know.

My bunny

Now that our bunnies have had four little bunnies we don't want to have any more because we do not have enough room in our cages. So today we took the boy my bunny Bubbles up to the vet to get a part of his body cut out to stop them from having babies. We also took him up in a cat cage because we had no other place to put him. You may be wandering why he has the cone on his head?, That's because of the bunny's sharp teeth he could be able to rip out the stiches and that could cause an infection and my bunny could get real sick. We have to keep the cone on the bunny so head for 7days (1 week) before we can take it of to let the stiches settle in. Also we have to keep the bunny away from our other bunny we have that is my sister Madalines. We have to put it in our other cage for the time being and mum said when the little bunnies get a bit older we will be able to bring them into school to show all my classmates. Have you ever had a bunny? Have you ever had this happen to any pets of yours? Comment below and tell me the answers to these questions!!!
