Patch at the Footy

In September I went to the Mininera and District Football Grand Final to watch the footy at Lake Bolac which is a small town near us. Football, or footy as Australians call it, is a game played on a grass oval field, with 22 people on a team and 18 people on the field. The other players are on the bench and can be swapped with someone on the field at any time. AFL football is our national sport.
Netball is also played. Many of the Hawkesdale Macarthur teams were in the grand final and although we lost, I liked being at the footy because I knew some people and Mrs H took lots of photos of us. There were lots of yellow and blue balloons for the team's colours. Overall it was a great and exciting day.
My teacher is having trouble uploading the photos so we shall put them up another time.

Hey Patch,
I bet you had a lot of fun at the Footy. I feel so sorry that your team lost, but at least they had fun playing a sport that they enjoy. I wish that someday I cold go and visit your country.

In the past, I have loved playing soccer. When you play soccer, you have a ball that you kick into a big net. The net is way taller than I am!

Our class has had so much fun! It's so fun when I get to see the student's smile and do so many activities.

Love Always,
Snowball

Woof, Woof
