We are looking forward to having "Quackers" visit us all the way from Canada.
We are starting quad blogging again this week.

Zzzzzz... The earthquake struck.  My bookshelf fell on me and the light also fell on me as well.  There was a crack through the bedroom.  We walked outside and there were people over at the neighbours because their car lights and alarm was on.   There was a hole in the pipe so we had no water, water was all over the street.  We had to get all new glasses and things for our kitchen.

In the night I heard my shelf falling down onto my football table.  It was so scary and I was frightened.

I remember in the earthquake I got trapped in my room.  Luckily I got out.  It was so freaky.  I thought I would never get out of my room.  It was dark.  My Dad got hurt, I got hurt, my whole family got hurt.

Crash! Bang! The bookcase fell over.  When I went to Mum and Dads room the hallway was on a lean.  We couldn't get our cat out of the garage.

Ollie found some bones in a forest near his house! He worked out that they are most likely possum bones.  It was interesting looking at the bones with the microscope - we could see grass and cobwebs near the teeth that we could barely see without the microscope!!  Possums do mainly eat plants!

Asha also brought in her paua shell to look at the detail close up with the microscope!
