This Week's Big Adventures

This week was a pretty good week. On Wednesday, we started making models of our dream home in Extension Class. Then on Thursday, we went to the museum to see an exhibit on Pompeii. Before we went, my class watched a video on Youtube about the volcano. I think that the exhibit was boring, and I didn't learn a thing. The 3-D Movie was okay, but I still learnt more from the video on Youtube.

Then yesterday, on Saturday, everyone celebrated 100 years of Girls Guides. This was defiantly the highlight of the week. Everyone, well the Girl Guides who wanted to in the cityhad been preparing for weeks. We had all received our new shirts that we had to wear, and were REALLY excited. When I say excited, I don't mean excited about what your having for dinner that night, or excited that you get to play dodge at school today. It was excited as in going on an overseas holiday, to meet your favourite singer and actor, and staying at a 5 star hotel all together. We were so excited that we couldn't sleep.

On Saturday, I got up at 6:40, which I think is the earliest I think I've ever gotten up at, then quickly got ready before my friend arrived at 6:50. We left at 7:00, the sun still rising. It felt like it was sunset. We met in a car park and went to check in. Wait. I havn't told you exactly what we're doing yet. Silly Me :P All the Guides in the district are having an Amazing Race (*Luv that show*) type game around the entire city. We are only allowed to use public transport/trains, and we have to travel around the city and answer question in a book we were given such as "How many camping stores can you see from  *********  Station?".

We were given a balloon, that we had too keep the whole day, and an egg, that we weren't allowed to crack. We left the check in place and hopped on the train to go and get our answers. There was also a scavenger hunt, and we had to get our photo with a clown. We easily completed that task (well most of us. You see, my other friend had a fear of clowns) and went on with the rest.

Before 9:45, we had already finished the questions on one whole trainline.

I think we spent about 2 hours on trains. But I don't mind, because I absolutley LOVE travelling on trains. I'm still not sick of them! On the train back to the check-in place, 3 other Guiding friends and I were playing around with the bluetooth on our iPods and phones.

I really enjoyed the day and had heaps of fun. I can't wait until the 200th aniversary :P



Also, I have thought of the perfect blog title for me. This Time of Year. Like it? Let me know what you think :)

Frangipani,

One of my followers said that my posts don't appear on her dashboard, so I fixed the problem, but in order for it to work, you have to un-follow me and then follow me again. if you haven't had that problem, then never mind, but if you have, then I 'd recommend you try it.
