25||10||17 Today I started off with a new book and finished my previous book. I started yesterday and read to page 1-9. Today I read from 9 - 31. Through the pages I read, were full of laughter. It's basically Greg's 'journal'. He talks about his first days of the week and how his brother Rodrick ALWAYS pranks and messes with him. I could imagine the same with my brother ! He also talks about his friends but I won't get into detail. I chose this book because after I watched the movies about 2 years ago? It made me want to read the book & I finally got the chance to read it.
Title: “Second time’s a fail & third time’s a charm I guess”
At school, famous sport trainers come into the school every tuesday. They come on the second week of the term. At the moment, our kiwi sport is Cricket. Our Coach name is Sahl.
“Good morning everyone!” our coach said as he clapped his hands. “Your class is ?....” he asked. We are Room 5!
On Tuesday we played cricket and I felt glad and renewed. I know renewed isn’t the word to you, but let me break this down. Back then, my family used to play cricket at Pt England park. The reason we’re into it SO MUCH is because it’s kind of a family sport. We are apart of a church that plays games every year. Okay! Back to the story.
Anyways, we were put into two teams. Palu and Laki. They were the captions of both two teams. I was put into Palus team. Both team captains were to do rock, paper. scissors to see who’s fielding or batting. Palu won and our team batted first.
We then had to get into a pair of two for each bat on the left and right. For our first lesson, we played a game of cricket. My partner was Trina.
Finally ! It was our turn. Trina was first. She didn’t miss the first bat but I did. “Ugh! RUN! RUN!” Trina shouted, we only ran 1 time because Trina hit it close but it was a great bat !
It was my turn. I haven’t played cricket in a year ! That’s why I felt renewed. Just as I swing the bat, I miss and swing the bat in the air. “Ugh!” I felt embarrassed ! But second time’s charm! So is third. & just as I couragely swing the ball … I run to the other side but Etuale catches the ball! “WHY?!” I thought to myself “Guess second time’s a fail & third time’s a charm!” and I frown on my face just as I walked away from the base. I reckon Trina DOES NOT want to be my partner again.
