Weave silk

Weave silk is a great and amazing art program. It has really cool graphics and extra cool sketch's too. But the most thing I like is that it takes your imagination into a whole new world. Here are some art pieces I made.
I like to call this one rose because it looks like a rose.

In this one I tried to make a person but it didn't work so I decided to call it x ray

This one is crazy

say hello to pillow. 

and finally the best one yet, armor

" One of our maths tasks today was working on an addition ".
One of the rules is that you can not write the same two numbers in each row". I have just completed my first triangle. I am now moving on to the next one.

My trip to Rotorua

I was in Rotorua feeling nice and fresh. It was a long ride and I hadn't even put one foot on the ground, I couldn't wait to get out of the car because my leg's were killing me. Anyway, eventually we got out of the car and had a bit of a play around, then we had lunch. I'm not going to tell you what I had for lunch, I get hungry just by thinking of it. Then after we ate we went site seeing, here are some pictures.

. Right after that we went to the luge but I was a bit nervous because I hadn't been on it for a long time and I might crash, but then I remembered that they give you a quick lesson at the start. We were nearly at the front of the line and I was still nervous, in fact I was so nervous my whole body was sweating, but I knew I had to go on. I zoomed straight past my brother Haron and was having such a great time. Just when things were looking good, Haron overtook me and with my big sister Hajira right behind me, I noticed that she was laughing. But I didn't care, at least I was second.
