Nervously walking along the itchy and wavy grass on our way to the WEET-BIX tryathlon with my Mum and my cousins, “how long do you think it would take?” I asked my cousin Jedida, also named my teammate or The Flying Fleas, that was our team name, “I don’t know” she said in a quiet voice. After chilling on the Woven mat, our cousins had asked me “Toby wanna come with us to get the prizes on the vouchers”, once I had finally lifted my weight and started to walk with my cousins to the first spot, to win something and what you would win is a hackey sack in one of the tents.
After travelling to other places just by showing your vouchers we had again sat on the mat where my mum sat and said “alright Toby time to get ready” she had already started to pack my gear for the transition into the run after my swim, after Jedida’s bike ride to the marist toilets and back to the pt england reserve where the WEET-BIX TRYATHLON was held right now and also where we are right now! She would have to put the bike down and tag my hand, then we would run together.
I really enjoyed the brekkie before everything started and also I liked hanging out with the cuzzies and playing with yo yo’s also playing piggy in the middle, I was mostly in the middle twisting turning trying to leap off the surface to at least grip the squishy inflatable ball, but sometimes I actually caught the ball well a few times I had caught the ball.
My favourite part of the tryathlon was the run because I also had more energy than her so I started to support her and protect her from the disaster that was happening around her, people were pushing, shoving and were especially bumping Jedida so I started to encourage her to move out of the crowd and she did, we started to slow down a little bit because she was very tired after the Bike ride.
We were almost there, as I ran I could see the beautiful sunshine, the sandy beach, the wavy grass, the handsome trees and finally the blue lit sky. I started to lose my control then, but I came back to focus “almost there Jedida, look” she turned her head and looked to where I was pointing then nodded in agreement, “almost there" I kept saying in my head, finally we had both crossed the finish line and got ourselves a Medal and more!

As the cheers of laughter spread through the classroom, while the three groups of kids all 8, 9 and 10 year olds stood in a circle to wrap, then untie themselves from each other. “AJ, put your feet through Jacob’s arms” I shouted to a friend of mine, my friend josh was having loads of fun twisting, turning falling to the ground.
“What kind of game is this?” I thought to myself while trying to untangle myself from all the disaster that was happening around me. My firm grasp was no match for Josh’s weight, a few seconds ago I couldn’t risk it, I had to let go. Once I let go I could see josh and myself laughing together then slap! He had hit the ground, both of us still laughing.
What I could hear and see was every student having a beaming joyful time, it was so cool to see how the students and teachers were happily getting along with each other.
People were shouting and screaming because of all the fantastic happiness around and inside the classroom, like a zap of lightning striking the classroom and providing laughter and fun while we still had the time to play the game.
I was trying to make sure everybody was listening to me so we could untangle ourselves and be free, but their was too much fun happening. A few minutes ago Miss West shouted ”alright everyone packing up and sitting on the mat” “yes Miss West!” everyone shouted and had already sat on the mat before she knew it, to learn new things!

Walking along the wavy swift grass, I saw the shifting clouds of rain and night, I could hear the bird whisperings through the trees as I walked to the beach and I could smell the oakwood inside the trees beside me, I could taste the oxygen in the air and finally reached the beach and also saw the sunset crying down and the moon was taking over.
