Christmas, My 11th birthday, Dentist

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t been posting lately. I haven’t had time to. So today I’m going to talk about 3 things; Christmas (25/12/2015), My 11th birthday (16/01/2016)/ and The Dentist (08/02/2016).

Christmas

For Christmas day we didn’t really do anything. First we opened presents from Mum, Dad and Santa (we opened them really early because I woke everyone up) I got a scooter, a cossie, The Hunger Games movies, The Hunger Games books, Counting By 7s book, and lots of other things that I cant remember. Next we went to church because my grandma is Catholic and it is really important to her, church was boring. After church my grandma and grandpa and my other grandma  came over for lunch. The next day we went to Berrara (the caravan park that my grandpa owns) with all of my cousins except for Aunty Mel, Uncle Dylan, Harlow, Harlem, and Luxy. They couldn’t come because Aunty Mel was pregnant. It was really fun. We stayed there for 1 week.

My 11th Birthday

On my 11th birthday I didn’t have a party. I just got a few friends and went to the movies to see Goosebumps. I wanted to see The 5th Wave but I wasn’t allowed because I invited my cousins Harlow and Harlem and they weren’t allowed to see The 5th Wave. For my birthday I got; A computer, a drawing book, a bracelet, 2 gift vouchers, a headband, clothes, books, and other things. and Tahina and Cohen wrapped up a bunch of things I already owned! Tahina even wrapped up a library book and some of her old clothes she wanted to give me.

Dentist

Today I went to the dentist to get my herbst appliance or expander. Only I didn’t get an expander I got braces ): . First Peter (the orthodontist) put in the brackets, that took a looooooooong time. He then put in nickel titanium wire over it so my top teeth would all move evenly. Then he told me I have to make the most important decision: what colour “o rings” should I get? I chose light blue and very light purple. It still hurts now.

So that has been my blog. I hope you enjoyed it! Goodbye (:

Hi

So much has happened since I last updated my blog. So I’m going to just say it fast before I forget.

I finally got my arm brace off! It came off just before the judo competition but I couldn’t compete because I was still fragile. My judo instructor Raphael still gave me the yellow belt the following week. During that lesson, we did sumo wrestling. I was dressed up in a fat sumo suit. It was so so much fun. I only got to do one round  with Mae-lou because I had to do a play on the same night.

The next thing I want to talk about is my play. At school we have been doing a play with the 6eme B of Enndara which is a high school. In my play, I played Snow White. At first I was going to do a small role but when I was doing the role, my teacher gave me a bigger role which is Snow White. I was happy to play Snow White. We performed the play at  La Salle, Quintao. It’s a big stage with 800 seats. I was excited and I think I performed well. I also did a second play called Les oeufs de Babagou. In english it translates to “Babagou’s eggs”. It’s an African play and we sang and danced. My mum, sister Tahina, brother Cohen and my friend Dylan came to watch me. Dad couldn’t come because he was at work. A year ago, I never thought I would be doing a french play. I had so much fun, I wish I had a bigger role to play.

On the Saturday after my play, it was my gymnastics show. I did a gymnastics routine to a song called “You’re the one that I want” from the movie Grease. I did it with my sister Tahina. We also did a flash mob to the song “Moulin Rouge”. We gave Bidou, our gymnastics instructor a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine because in France, they drink wine a lot.  I will miss gymnastics because it was fun and I learnt a lot. I was just learning how to do a flip on uneven bars. I hope to continue gymnastics when I go back to Australia.

Last week we had our “fête de l’école”. Fete de l’ecole in english is School Party. The school put on games and candy floss, food and drinks for everyone. After the games, all the classes put on a show by performing a song and dance for the parents and teachers. My class did a dance to a song called “Ricochets”. When the all the performances are finished, all the kids sit down at a table to eat with their friends. We ate hot dogs, potato chips, a popper and a compote. I also had a free ice tea because one of my best friends, Pauline’s dad worked at the bar so all my best friends got a free drink. Yes, at school they set up a bar for parents and teachers so they can drink wine and beer on school grounds. They are also allowed to smoke!

When the kids finish eating, it’s the parents and teachers turn to sit down to eat together. When everyone is finished eating, they put on a disco. Cohen was on stage dancing almost all night. This is very different to how my old school in Australia celebrates the end of year because they never did anything! I prefer the end of year celebrations in a French school.
