100 wc rain

On Tuesday the 28th January 3013 my family and I went to see the Commonwealth Games in Tokyo Japan. We saw the swimming unfortunately the swimming was outside so it was really sunny, boiling hot and lots of people got sun burnt. Suddenly it started bucketing down rain and everyone was drench because there was no shelter. The crowd was running to their private jets to escape the pouring rain although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress. So crowd was so soaked they could have collected buckets full of water and made a Commonwealth Games swimming of their own.

One day on the way home from school. Everything looked the same except I couldn’t see my dog even outside in the backyard. My dog was small and hard to find but I had looked everywhere even in the toilet. He was nowhere to be seen. I look around the backyard for the hundredth time and I hear barking. I start to yell, “Jeff come here, Jett”. I could see him anywhere and I look up to the clouds and wonder where he could be. Suddenly I see him standing on the roof next the gargoyle but how did he get up there.

Donald trump once said “I will build a wall and make America great again.” 

But what if I was in charge I would make sure there would be no school, no homework or guns without a licence.

If I was in charge I would sack who ever I want.

It would be real fun .

I would get heaps of pets like pugs, dogs and ducks.

That would be the life, if only I was in charge instead of doing homework right now for all you to read.

 

Ow so cute!

One day after playing my soccer match on Saturday we had to go shopping 😢. My mum said if you don’t complain we can get something. Mum passed me a shopping list with some strange stuff on it like a ladder, slowly cooked beef, brussel sprouts and lots more.  After we have bought all the stuff like the ladder mum starts to head to a big building then I read the sign on the building.  I see that it says pet stock!  When we find a park I start to sprint into the shop.  I walked in the shop with nothing but came out with a big brown goldfish that flew through the water.
