Today, I went on the computer and did Commanders of Evony in the morning. Then I did Cool Maths Games. I then played some tetris before Mama came home. When Mama got home I started on this blog but I was meant to have the blog finished hours ago so Karl and I could watch a movie with Nana and eat some popcorn.

I don'nt know if we are still going to watch a movie. I am going to have my lunch now.

Nana Arriving

On Monday 13 of April 2015, I walked into the airport to pick up Nana who would stay with us for a week and to look after us for the last week of the school holidays.

This afternoon Mama and I went shopping while Karl went with Nana to get his eyes checked at the University of Auckland Optometry Clinic. Karl now needs to get glasses which are full-time glasses (glasses which he wears all the time).

We went home and started on this blog and we are now going out to a restaurant for dinner in Mission Bay.
I like Nana being up with us.

Commanders of Evony

On a game called Commanders of Evony, I have a level 6 town hall. The higher the town hall is (the max is 10) the more defences I can get and the stronger the defences can be.

My things are level 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. I want a level 10 town hall so I can have more defences and I want a super crossbow which I need a level 9 town hall for.

I am level 21 with a level 21 general. My generals name is Spartacus but I want Houyi, Achillies, Cleopatra and Edward II.

It is a cool game in my opinion and I play it lots.

Tanki Online

On a game called Tanki Online I ranked up to Master Corporal. We rank up by destroying other tanks and when we rank up we get gems. With gems we can buy hulls and turrets which are better. After Master Corporal, I can rank up to Sergeant soon.

I am playing it at my Oma and Opa's house in the school holidays.

Monday, 6 April 2015


On Sunday 5 April 2015, while we were at Oma and Opa's house, we got out a game called CA$HFLOW. Oma read us the rules and gave us what we needed. The things the we got at the start were money and our pieces.

We started off playing and Karl bought something. Oma bought the next thing. Then I got a doodad card and I had to buy a boat but I did not want to. We stopped the game, went for a bike around the block then watched The Smurfs instead.

The aim of the game is to get more Passive Income than your Total Expenses. That gets you off the rat race and onto the fast track where you buy businessses to earn money and buy your dream.

Malama Honua Voyage

On a bright, warm Wednesday 25, March Morning, The senior school from Glenbrae School walked down to Pt England Beach to see the wakas which came from Hawaii. We left school at 8:45 am. The wakas were called Hourua Hokule'a and Hikianalia.

We got to Pt England at 9:05 am and sat down on the wet grass but Fraser and I sat on dry grass around the tree. We waited for 5 minutes and then we saw another waka coming in. The waka was called Hourua Hokule’a. It was big and it had a speed boat with it. We stood up and sang E Oho O as some of the people on the waka came in to the shore in a speed boat.

The speed boat went back for more people. When all the people were off the boat, we sang He Honore. After that, some people from the waka, gave speeches.

Finally we sang Nga Waka E Whitu. Then starting with Pt England we walked past the people on the waka and slapped their hands as we passed. We ran up the steps and waited in our classes. We walked back to school with Rooms 9 and 10 at the back and Rooms 7 and 8 at the front.

Regina coming to New Zealand

On Saturday, when we got home from church Mama started making scones with corn in for lunch. Oom Ron and Tante Norma arrived at our house for lunch and to wait for Oma and Opa to come with Regina who is my Dad's Cousin.

Oom Ron and Papa went out to get soda water for the scones which Mama baked. When they got back we had lunch with out Oma and Opa and Regina. Oma and Opa arrived with Regina at about 2:30. Mama, Papa, Oom Ron and Tante Norma got in the car and showed Regina around Auckland.

We went to Valentine's in Manakau for dinner. I had lots of Ice Cream and 1 helping of dinner. I had lots of helpings of desert but not much of dinner.

The next day Regina came to our house and made sandwichs like she makes on the Underamour Jet Plane. I did not have one. We went outside and taught Regina how to play Cricket but she played it like baseball instead.

I really enjoyed my week-end with Regina.
