Quote of the Day: They always say time changes things, but you have actually have to change them yourself.
Today I had canoeing, so I did not have a morning class and an afternoon class. To start of the day we had the abc film team come in and film what we do in the mornings, and then they followed us to the river where we were canoeing. Before we lest campus we had to make ourselves sandwiches to take because we would be gone until 4:00pm. When we got to the river we had to unload the canoes and all the safety equipment, we needed. My partner for canoeing was Leisel. To start of I had my thermals on with my gortex pants on, my flees and also my gortex jumper. Once we were all set up had our life jackets on and our hats we went in. Mr. Dooley showed us and few paddle strokes to help us move around easily. Then we had to rarft up, which is holding onto each other's canoes. Once we had our practice we had a race from the entrance to Mr. Dooley then back to the entrance do 3 spins and then go back to Mr. Dooley backwards, Liesel and I came 4th. Then we went for a long paddle through the river it was so beautiful. Mr. Dooley needed a few leaders the first leader was to take the lead Max D and Ben took that role then we had the time keeper which was Catherin, then there was Jess who had to make sure everyone had their hats on and we keeping hydrated and then I put my hand up to be in charge of the environment, my job was to make sure everyone had put there rubbish in the container. Once we all had our roles we set off down the river it was so beautiful, we had our first NAM . About 5 minutes after we had started. Once we had come back from our about an hour and a half paddle, we had lunch, and told riddles, some of the riddles we really good. The one that Jess said was "It starts of red, then you cut it in half and then it's blue, then you cut in half again and then it's pink" it took us all a long time to figure out what it was. It is $20, $10 then $5, we all thought that was a good one. Once we had lunch we had to get into our wet clothes I just had my bathers on and kept my thermals on. We got back into the water we did cap sizing. It was so fun. We all got into a raft and the end person sat in front of us and they rocked there boat until they cap sized. Once they came back up for air they pushed there canoe over to us and we had to sit it on top of us and turn it back the right way then we slid it back in the water and they had to get back in a join the raft again, and then we all did it. Once we all had a go we had to split up and do it just with our partners, Liesel and I were second, once we had cap sized we had to push the canoe to the shore and then we packed up. Once we had all gotten out of our wet clothes we jumped back into the bus and Mr. Dooley played some really cool music. ( A lot of it was the ukulele).
Once we got back to school we had afternoon tea witch was ice cream cake in a cone because it was Jess's birthday. Once we had all eaten we put our gators on and went for a walk up through zone 4 and walked through all the bike rakes.
Evening Class: For evening class last night we had goal setting with Mr. Morton, he spoke about his kids and how they make goal. We had to set a goal about bridge building, my goal was to take a leader ship goal, to help me achieve this I would have to take in other people's ideas and put myself into the group.

The vibe so far in my expo group is really good we are really nice to each other and help one another out.
It feels really nice with my expo team because we are all so nice to each other and tell each other to keep on going, and we can do it.
The way I have contributed in the community this week is by raking the bike tracks and getting involved.
