Hi evryone! :hello:

Tomorrow I'm going on camp!
I am really exited about It! :jumping:
My brother told me that this :alien: will happen to me!
But if I do get abducted by aliens, they've got to be nicer than him! :cookoo:
I got told by my friend (Josh) that you get a lot of hot chocolate with dinner! :jawdrop:
My teacher said "you do not have to do what you do not want to do" :focus:
We will be doing rafting in rafts and we will be doing other outdoor and indoor activities and games!
We have two days and one night at our school's outdoor education campus in the Fingal Valley down here in Tasmania.
Did I tell you I'm really excited? :woohoo:
bye! :hello:

May the power of the Buddha be with you!!!

Hi everyone

Thanks for your nice replies.
I've just sent young Quinn off to bed.
I'm hoping he'll get some sleep.
kind regards

Have a great time Quinn!

Never mind the aliens Quinn. Watch that you're not abducted by mosquitoes - they're not nearly as nice as aliens. :tongue:

Have fun.

Hi, Quinn.

I'm glad that camping was fun. Any place that has hot chocolate and rafting sounds great.

I look forward to your photos.
