Thursday 25th of June 

I am watching the news on my TV their is flood all around I am   hopping it will not happen to me and my family well I slip on my pj and brush my teeth jump into bed and I dream about me having to evacuate the building.  
I am relaxing myself but soon to hear I am Woken , then I struggle to find the nearest emergency exit I feel  like I am in manawatu river swimming trying to find my way to sand dunes . But finally I find my way to my bed side window before I crawl out I grab the important stuff (  eg beanie , books , glasses , school bag , lunch box,  book bag and pillow pet / toys ( that helps me sleep) . 
Finally splashing through the window waterfall down to the back yard  next to the bike shed  oh my gosh waiting for family members.   "Hurry up " say inside my head . Oh I forgot to turn of my TV what I can that the people that evaluated can not return home tonight .  Oh no , I can't return home well after that I spent my time at uncle Russell's and joes house and they return me and my family home at 1:00 pm and it turned out fine .

skeleton writing 
My favourite story through term two   
OH i hate being treated  like rubbish , and getting dumped into a rubbish   can with doggy doos out on the street smelling like rotten bananas. I 
always get left out when people are eating my food and I have to eat my own skin that how I am now ugly. Do humans even know what it feels like?  What if humans were me? Would you like being treated  like this? Ow ow ow I am trying to tell a story here dogs,  go away, I mean not you audience, I meant the dogs. Wait come back, please " fine ". I wish I could hear more respect, I really don't get enough respect. I only get respect from my family no one else. How come I am the only skeleton that gets treated like this? All I want is a nice home with caring people around , best friends and last, clothes , please it's all I want please. I always feel left out, start feeling a little respected and respect that I am here and I used to be a human and I still am, but a bit bonier so respect me. After that I fit in and enjoy my life with the humans. Today at 2:30  I brought a sweeter with some nice shiny shoes and a stripy flash tie. Now I feel apart of the family. I will never be left out again. I love being a skeleton now it's awesome.
