Sorry I haven't posted in a while...
Well, anyway, on the 15th of February a group of us homeschoolers (only Jarrod and me from our family) (homeschoolers are awesome, by the way =)lol) met at the Rakete's house (at 7am... =( )and we all rode to Manukau City together, for Bike to Breakfast...basically you ride there (all the way from the carpark in one family's case lol!...) and they give you free food!! =) [oh and this year-free (thin though) backpacks with various things like punture repair kit, slap-band, drink bottle, etc in them] This year they had various cereals, yoghurt, scones, muffins, fruit, and possible a couple of other things..sorry can't remember... AND...they had a coffee van!!! Unfortunately they weren't able to supply Esther's Cappamochahotchocolate (pronounced Cappa-mocha-hot-chocolate!), so we all decided hot chocolates would be ok instead. =)
After most of us had finished eating, one of the people running it asked to take a photo of us, so we all got on the grass with our bikes (shhh, don't tell, we might get in trouble!! lol) for photo 1, then photo 2 was all the girls, and last of all, photo 3 was the guys, which seeing as I obviously wasn't in it, I got a photo of (after the main photo had been taken, that's why there's a couple of other people in it =) ) -
The clown in the above pic (Jingles I think his name was), had brought along some unusual bikes - a large unicycle, a very small unicycle, and another one that i won't try to explain, so you'll have to wait for the photos - I'll point it out in one of them =)
Jingles also juggled fire and knives. Some pics:
|Alan blows out the fire-sticks (unfortunately for him it was |
a losing battle, as 2 were always lit!)
|Alan prepares to eat fire!|
|Nice juggling Mark! =) ok, ok, he was pretty good,|
but this pic is funnier..lol
And J and I arrived home about 10am, tired, and not at all feeling like doing school work!
Well dinner's ready, so I better go...
