Flying Fox

I stepped out to face the wind smashing against me. Whoosh, I was like a rocket swooping through the air.

 

I reached the end of the finish line of the amazing, scary and fast flying fox. I collected the rope and raced back for my next turn.

 

“Yeah it’s my next turn” said Ziggy. I reckoned I was going to go upside down this time. I finished, buckled and connected up my harness as the gate opened. I stepped off the block and ran out of the tower.

 

I quickly engaged with my feet tipping them upside down. In the distance I could see Max talking to Kyle. They looked strange, they were upside down too.

 

I realised I was close to the end of the wire so I quickly turned the right side up.

 

That was very fun I say to myself at the end of the fun time at the flying fox we all go back to our cabins to regain all our energy. Everyone in my cabin had a good laugh about the day and after a while we put our comfortable clothes on and we went to have dinner and then we had a disco in the games room for the disco a lot of my friends and I put our onesies On and had lots of fun after that we all went to bed.

 

 

That was a very fun day said everyone.

My Autobiography

Hi, I’m Ziggy. You can call me Ziggy or Ziggs. I’m a very funny boy. I live with my mum, Jackie, my dad, Takie, my brother, Luca, my sister, Grace and my dog Honey. I live in Melbourne in a nice house (I think).

 

 

I play soccer we won the grand final there’s a new team in my league it’s called the green central comets. By the way, my team is called the white central comets we moved into a different league so the greens are in our old league called the mini league so now where in the super league and Luca use to be in super league. My dad is the coach for my brother’s team. Also my coach is my friend Quinn’s dad called David I think he likes me since I’m the oldest in my team. We lost our first match in our new league 5 nil so that was annoying but it doesn’t matter because where new in that league.

 

 

That’s me Ziggy  the (very) funny boy.

Lorne-1st piece in 2014

Lorne was terrific with my family we went to the beach every day. Where we stayed was magnificent because there where stares and the house were massive and there were four balkanise. We have stayed in that house four times I normally sleep in the same room all the time.

When we were at the beach we went scoober diving of a boat and we went fishing I caught a flat-head and puffer fish. While we were staying at the house my cousins Rory and William and there Dad came over a bit later. Oh I’m sorry I forgot to tell you who came well there were wait it is just my whole family. When we were leaving I wrote a note and hid it in the room we were sleeping in.
