Coming To America!

Yes! finally! I was so excited, today I am going to America! My Uncle Gerald or Uncle G and me are going to Aunty Pamela's Wedding in South Carolina, America.

When I finished school my uncle Gerald came and picked us up I was so happy. so when we got picked up we drove back home. Dad went to pick up mum and my sisters from pre school. I wanted to stay with my uncle Gerald so I could have shower and put some stuff in my bag.

Soon after I had a shower, my whanau arrived home from school, mum came in and told me off to move faster because I was daydreaming! I got changed quickly, my mum told me to get my stuff but I was too lazy. I got told of again. After that I got my stuff and put it in my bag then I did my hair.

We then headed to the airport but first we had to go to the Warehouse and Countdown  to buy snacks and New Zealand stuff for my cousins and aunty in America. When we arrived at the airport we had to get our bags from the boot check in and get our tickets. Then it was up up the escalator to the departure place.

My dad said that my homework was to blog about my journey to America. HOMEWORK!! Cool! So follow my blog and comment please!

Then it was time to go so I gave my lovely whanau kisses and hugs. I took photos of them, said my last goodbye and we went on our to journey to America.

Should New Zealand be Smokefree?

Should New Zealand be Smokefree?  Kia ora my name is Nelisa-Ailini and I am here to talk to you about why is it important for New Zealand to become smokefree by 2025. Fristly being smokefree means different things to different people. What does it mean to you?

I believe in smokefree New Zealand. This means that there is a campaign for people to stop smoking in New Zealand by 2025. So when I am 20 years old there will no one smoking in New Zealand. Wouldn't it  FABULOUS?

 This year there is a band from displaying smokes behind the counter. DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GREAT IDEA?

 Remember it is an achievable goal. By working together we can achieve the vision of a smokefree Aotearoa and it is important to tell your child not smoke. and through simple steps with whanau school community or organizations WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN! Hold smoke free events, smoke free cars ask whanau to not smoke around kids. Talk to kids about being smokefree even if you are a smoker you can still help.

So come everyone let's make that first step together to a Smokefree New Zealand

Hoopslammers Slam Reremoana

        Hoopslammers slam Reremoana
Yippee its game time!  I waited with anticipation for my mum to blow her whistle... hohoho!  My heart leapt, it was beating really fast.  I ran to catch the ball from the center pass.  My tummy was full of butterflies because I was so nervous.  
Quickly I passed the bouncy netball to Sipa.  I wondered will she catch it?  
Suddenly the ref said, “contact Reremoana’s ball!”
I felt so sorry for my friend Sipa because we missed our chance to score a goal.
I thought to myself I should get the ball back.  Suddenly Lucile leaped out of nowhere like she was on a trampoline.  She intercepted the ball and quickly threw it to the GS.  Everybody held their breath.  
Jade the GS took a deep breath, bent her legs and took a shot for the goal.
“Yippeeee!"  Everybody shouted as Jade got the winning goal in.  Hoopslammers 17-16.

Family Reunion in Hawaii 2011 - My Reccount

On Friday 15 July we had our Atoa Tugaga Family Reunion. It was held in Hawaii. It was really fun! 

We were given our name tags and put into groups. Like green, red, blue and yellow. 
We hugged our cousins and it felt good to see them again. We had lunch and it was yummy. We had lots of fruits and sandwiches to eat.

We then took our bags to the tents. It was a cool tent because it was by the beach! It looked like a humungus party with all my cousins, aunties and uncles in the tents beside us. 

I could smell the salty waves from the beach. It reminded me of Castlepoint beach in Masterton. When I was a baby I ate the sand!

My favourite memory of the reunion was swimming with my cousin Jenna and Uncle Tony and my Dad. The waves tried to drown me by pushing my whole body into the big blue sea. My cousin grabbed my hand and dragged me out of the sea.

After that my cousin Jenna and Uncle Tony help me to swim in the sea.

'Watch your Step!' said the sign as we stepped carefully onto the ferry. The sun was shining like white nivia cream and it was a girls day out. I went with Mrs Logan, my sisters and mum but her real name is Jenny Mahon ha ha!

The boat was moving like a slow whale. Me and my sisters took pictures and we had awesome fun.
The big blue waves went swish swish swish.
"This is fun!" said my cheeky sister Salina. We all laughed!
We were very proud of our sister Salina because she was a good girl.
