When I went to Gymnastics in the hall we sat down. Then we did warm-ups. Then Gerin showed us what to do. Then Gerin put us in to groups. I was in group 2. My team was Iverson, Malia, Sateki, Solomone and me. First we did Bunny-hops then we did stretches then we Cartwheels. Later we held the floor and put our on the table and crawled to the other side. Then we jumped on the blue mats to green mat. Soon we started from the beginning. We also did flips and Cartwheels. We also did skipping with ropes. We did lots of Gymnastics and I loved it I can do it forever.

We had to stand up and sing Tongan songs.The first song was easy to sing. But the other songs were a little hard to sing because it had a lot of words. Then everyone in our Church went to one side. We all had to sing the song that we chose.

When Church finished we all went in groups. I was in group 3 some other people came in group 3.After that we had to chose a song we all knew.Once we all chose a song we had to tell the person the leader our song.When we finished telling her we went to go to our cousins house.

Easter

One day my family and I had a Easter hunt. They hid the Easter eggs and my dad, my mum, my brother and I had to find them. I found one Easter egg in my bedroom. I found another Easter egg outside. I also found two eggs in the garage, one in the car and one by the rubbish bin. My little brother found four eggs, my mum found three eggs and my dad found six eggs. My mum also surprised me with another Easter egg. Later on I ate all my Easter eggs, it was cool. That was the best Easter egg hunt ever :)

Gymnastics

Every Tuesday we always have Gymnastics, so we can get fit and healthy.
We have a coach his name us Jerron. He also has a helper and her name is Kate. They are both from America.
Firstly we started to do shapes. We did L shape, The Straddle shape and lots of other shapes.
Secondly, Jerron showed us how to do the obstacles. He showed us the Bunny hops, Handstand and the Cartwheels.
The people that were in my team were Silia, Akesa, Thomas, Dianne, Kalise and Christopher. I loved doing the handstands and the skipping ropes. But I had a problem, I had an argument with malia. I didn't mean to make her cry. But I said sorry so she forgave me and she said sorry too.
Lastly Jerron showed us a cool trick with the hoops. He rolled the hoop to the wall then it rolled back to him.
When Gymnastics was finished we went back to class and we did prayer time.
