Cool Kiwis

Would you call a Kiwi beautiful? I know I wouldn’t. Its plumage is dark and dull and stiff like dog hair. The Kiwi feathers is not like other birds. The most ridiculous thing about it is it’s bill, it can grow up to 20cm long.

Did you know Kiwi’s are fast? They have really strong, powerful leg, that can out run a human. They use their legs to fight other predators like weasels, stoats, cats, rats, ferrets and also dogs.

Kiwis use their strong leg to dig up a burrow, which is used to lay their eggs in. Some times they build it in a log or under the roots of a big tree. Each of the burrows are about three metres long.

And there you have it how can you possibly resit a flightless,

ridiculous, wrinkled winged, chicken sized, burrow building species.

Cross Country Race

Oh my gosh I cant believe it, Cross Country is on today. I have been hoping this day wouldn't come but here it is, I keep saying to myself why, why does it have to be today.

Oh no, standing there while biting my nails I stepped up to the start line. I hate to say it but I feel like screaming and spewing all at the same time. "BANG" everyone ran, this is my worst nightmare ever because I'm to afraid I will come last.

Oh no, this isn't good I think I'm going to be sick and to make it worse there's a big muddy patch ahead. As I make my way past Ms Glaze trying to take a breath, I suddenly felt gooey mud between my toes. I didn't care I just kept running.

I finally make my way to the finish line, WOW! I can't believe it,I did it, I actually ran that big long race with no stich at all, I am so proud of myself.

Even though I have a aching back, sore legs, and a felling of a broken ankle I feel like I came first.
