This week we had to write about a piece of music. We had to write down how it made us feel and what it reminded us of. This is my story!
My heart is pumping as I sit down in the soft velvet seat. There are almost no children in the Theater. My dress is starting to become strangely uncomfortable. The conductor walks onto the stage. My skin is prickling horribly. Suddenly, the music starts up. My skin feels like it is covered by a chilly robe. I am swept away, lost in my own world as the music echoes around me. My thoughts sway in time to the beautiful, grand beat. I am transfixed. My eyes are glued to the scene in front of me. I won’t look away, I can’t! My stomach feels as though those musical instruments are really inside it, all pumping out the rhythm that makes me feel weird. My head pounds as the last note rings out. I am swept back to the world of humans and a hot stuffy Theater. I clap until my hands hurt. That music was breathtaking!
I was going to the orchestra with my Aunt, her friend and my sister. It was my first time and I was really nervous. When I heard the music I thought it was beautiful! There were basically no children there and it was nearly all adults. My sister got a bit tired after a while. I, However, loved it! I have loved music all my life and will never stop loving it. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I will never forget it!

I hope you really enjoyed camp, I really did. One thing I am very thankful for is that you took a week off your work to be with us. That was very nice of you! I really enjoyed the meals you and the other dads cooked. They were delicious! Thank you for helping the Candy Buddies with their dinner. We almost forgot some things but you reminded us and that made our dish one of the best! We ended up coming second equal in Master Chef. Also I would like to thank you for coming with the Candy Buddies on the night detectives. You helped us when you told us how to remember the sentence. When you played the Animal Game it was really fun. You said some really funny jokes as well! My favorite part was when we went on the rock hopping walk. I really liked climbing the rocks. That was really fun! I also liked it when we ran all the way to Michael Noonan's grave. I was running really fast and I found it hard to stop! My most challenging part was the last cave. I found it hard to hold onto the rope and I was slipping down quite fast. But you were helping us down and I did it! You made a big difference to camp. I hope you had a great time!
Dear Mike, ⛺
I hope you did really enjoyed camp, I did. One of my reasons that I enjoyed it was because of you! You made camp really fun for me by cracking jokes all the time. Thank you so much for serving dinner and breakfast! Those meals were some of the best I have ever had.
My favorite part of camp was when we had Master Chef. You did a great job of coming round and giving us tips.
The time I was challenged was the last cave. I was a bit scared because my head torch was dim and the cave was quite dark. But you were encouraging us and I made it to the end.
When we walked to those falls, I found it very interesting when you did a handstand and walked on your hands. You are very talented! My favorite thing you did was remembering everyone's animal names and numbers. That took a lot of brains! Also I would like to thank you for drawing that awesome page in the book. It looked amazing! I hope you had a great time and really enjoyed camp too.
Malena, Puma, 19.
