I was really pleased to see Davy again. On friday we went to a pyjama party at  Maia's house to celebrate her birthday. Davy liked her ginea pigs.




I was also exited because my cousins came visiting us for 4 days.

One day we went to Toulouse. Popcorn was really good at climbing. Then we had to go so we go to past river Garone and nearly fell down in the river.
After that,  Popcorn saw a motorbike,  and he stole it and he ran away. Then he was sad so he return the motorbike.
At the end of the day, we returned home and we jumped on the trampoline.

Next day, I did my first communion.  Popcorn preferred stay in the trees of our house, climbing and jumping.
 My communion was good .we ate the cookie that was Jesus body but we couldn't drink the whine because it is for grown ups. The wine is the blood of Jesus.
Then we celebrated own communion in a restaurant and the restaurant had a swiming-pool a trampoline.It was so hot and Popcorn jumped to the swiming-pool.

Long Weekend with PERRY

Perry was extremely excited to come home with me because my week-ends might be a bit normal but I arrange fun things to do.
Day 1
The next day me and Perry did some yoga. Perry was so good at it though I soon caught him up.  Here is me doing a simple movement of Yoga:



We also played UNO game together.
Before we went to La Foir’Foille we had a nice little snack.
That afternoon we went to La Foir’Foille to buy some packets of the little rubber bands to make fancy colourful bracelets.
When we came back home, I taught Perry how to make those bracelets.
Day 2
Next day, we read so much even though it was only Friday! (2 days till Reading Rocks begins) Though at evening we played physical stuff on the Xbox. We played a sports game and a dance game so we were super tired ( and sweaty )
Day 3
We did lots of golf and I insisted Perry in a picture so people knew he knows how to play golf but he was shy.
We had our supper, it was fish with pesto sauce,  vegetable paella and homemade bread. For me it was normal because I have it maybe once 2 weeks but for Perry it was special because he always had banana meals.

 Day 4
We did a little sports morning though I didn’t participate because it was only for Perry and Teddy ( my teddy bear ), here are some photos of them:



When it was evening we went to this sort of pitch to play with my boomerang.



It was soon time to sleep and  then go back to school. Goodbye Perry!

Diary of a Wimpy Weekend (or maybe not so wimpy...)

On Saturday, I went horse riding and there is a video that Popcorn took. The horse that I was riding was called Faquir, and during the lesson he went to the toilet several times ... and the teacher called Romain was getting quite cross with it. Popcorn enjoyed seeing me on a horse, but didn't fancy having a go himself.

video


On Sunday we went on a day out to Corde sur Ciel, which is a reaaly old town on a hill.Here is a map of the town at the bottom of the hill. Popcorn wanted to climb up, but it was just a map.


While we were going up the hill, Popcorn was having some fun and hanging from everything he could hang on to and swing from. Here is a picture of Popcorn swinging around, he tried to get from one side of the steep street to the other !


When we were at the top of the mountain we used a telescope to admire the beautiful view. Popcorn wanted to look through the scope as well. We saw a long way away and a lot of things, including an ice cream shop at the bottom, and we went there. I had a vanilla and strawberry ice cream - I loved it. Popcorn tasted it too.



On the way back, we visited a vineyard, which is a place where they make lots of wine, and where people come and buy it. We bought a box of bottles of wine and a bottle of fizzy wine, and some local honey; we gave one bottle to a friend of ours on the way home. This photo shows the vine with grapes growing. The grapes are pressed to make juice.



The grape juice is fermented in these enormous tanks and made into wine. The wine is stored in the 'chai'. This is an old word in french that means wine cellar. Popcorn hopped up to read it - we say 'shay'.


Of course we had to taste the wine, and Popcorn tasted it too. This is called Dégustation. This is the proprietaire whose family have lived at this chateau for hundreds of years. In fact since the 17th century !!

Bibis awesome weekend with Luis

This is a picture eating Dinner

On Saturday we went to the Trampoline, before we went to a friends house to watch the Final of the Champions League. We had lots of fun on the trampoline!

This is the cup they won

Champions!

Perry came home for the weekend.

My father went to Mexico last week and brough some presents.

I have now an aztec calendar.


I still don't know how to use it, but I think I've found the hollidays.



This is Cuauhtémoc, the last Aztec ruler. His name means "One That Has Descended Like an Eagle",



And this craft was found in the Teotihuacan Pyramids. Is a symbol of the moon.

Yesterday was the Champions League Final.

Real Madrid was playing Atletico de Madrid in Lisbon.
We all dressed up to support Real Madrid.


Even Lola put on her T-Shirt.

That was a great game! Both teams played well, but Real finally won.


Champions!!!
