My Holidays

Yellow Hat
The best part of my holiday was:  
When I went to Dunkirk and played Hit and Roll with my cousins Jade, Keelan and Christian.  My uncle and my stepdad also played it was fun.

Black Hat
During the holidays I didn’t like it when:  
I got  into heaps of trouble.  Also sometimes I  had to look after my brothers.

Green Hat
Next holidays I would like to:  
Go to my Uncles house because he lives up the mountain.  He also gives me money, lollies and ice-cream.
