100 word challenge 3- Hard, Beautiful, Brown, Worried, Camera, my 13th piece in 2017

I was huffing and puffing as I rocked climbed up the mountain clutching as hard as I could to my camera so it wouldn’t fall. I guess I should tell you why I’m risking my life climbing up a huge mountain that with one slip I could fall (which just happened)! I wailed as I feel down. I was so worried that I lashed out and grabbed the mountain, my knuckles got scraped as I wacked the hard mountain. But in no time at all I was at the top, there in the moist brown dirt was the most beautiful flower I ever seen (the hernopis teronic to be precise)

100 word challenge 2-But how can something be so tiny, my 10th piece in 2017

“But how can something be so tiny”, was the thought that continuously  played in my head as I looked at my tiny science teacher who we just found sitting on a table smaller than the full stop at the end of this sentence. “Don’t worry class ,this is totally normal” he said in a really high pitched voice, “tiny teachers are normal” said Jimmy the kid actor in my class “were is my agent when I really need him”. Everyone laughed except Wyatt the class smarty-pants, “But that’s impossible” he said, I’m going to stop the story here so Wyatt won’t bore you to death with his excuse.

I am always last to school because my sister was cursed by a witch when me and here were out for a little explore around. Suddenly she appeared out of know were, then she raised her magic staff pointed it at use and a bolt of lightning shot out of it. I jumped out of the way but the bolt hit Alaska right in the face, then the witch disappeared.

Camp reflection for 2017, my 5th piece in 2017

This was my best camp yet, there was absolutely no downside to it. My dad was one of the parents that came along and was my activity team leader. So I had loads of fun with him and I got to introduce him to all my friends. I also had fun trying all the foods there. My favourite breakfast was the everyday eggs and bacon with solders and apple juice and a bowl of rice bubbles and toast with jam. My favourite lunch was a sandwich that I loaded with vegetables. My favourite dinner was pizza, I had Aussie and a few pieces of garlic bread to go with it. And my favourite dessert I cabin, I was with Ziggy, Oliver, Abraham, Jack.K, Jack.M, Josh.W, Charlie.R and Rowan. I had a lot of good sleeping, gaming, chatting and roasting them (that when they try to embarrass you but you embarrass them instead). In conclusion I believe that this was the best camp I have ever been on, BOO-YAH.
