The big launching and race.
I was so excited and so were all the other bears. Of course Prissy Pants was extra scared. She kept telling me what happens if I fall out.
Well of course I told her nobody will fall out.
So we had a big instruction lesson before we started.
I sat them in the sun and told them,
1. no jumping around in the raft.
2. no pushing and shoving each other.
3. listen to what I have to tell you.
4. no trying to get out of the raft
first. Take your time.
Then I realized some one was missing...
Where is Boof????
Well we carefully put the raft in the water and every one shouted Hooray!!!!
Because it floated.
Prissy pants and Teeny wanted to go first just in case they got too scared latter on.
Away we sailed.
There were smiles all round.
Then the race started.
Prudence some how, had conned a big bear with very big muscles to row her raft.
We could see them up ahead. Prissy was saying wait for us.
We were piped at the post. Prudence and her new rowing team won.
We shook there hands and said well done. Even though we were wishing we won.
It was Boof's turn, so I thought we had a fair chance this time.
Prudence and her muscle men ran into a mob of ducks which slowed them down.
It certainly gave us and edge.
We were going so fast we couldn't stop in time, and got a bit of a spray from the waterfall. Oh well it was a nice day so not to worry.
We headed back to shore feeling pleased with our selves.
That's where the trouble started.
Boof was teasing Tiny and he was saying I am getting out first because I am the best ... Teeny was distressed and was hanging on to his leg saying "don't be a bossy britches." WHEN all of a sudden Boof fell in. Teeny was still hanging on to him trying to pull him back. Poor Teeny was to small to help.
Boof's face went under the water and he was blowing bubbles. Of course I had to put my first aid into action. I dragged him out and gave him mouth to mouth.
Thank goodness He spluttered, and started breathing.
What a scare. Now I didn't say anything to Boof then, we were so pleased he was breathing.
Prissy pants sunned herself on the lawn with a pretty umbrella.
Latter that night while we were around by the camp fire, I explained how important it is to listen to instructions, because we all need to work as a team and be safe together.
Phewwww!!!! what a day.
When they were all tucked in bead, Prudence and I had SEVERAL cups of hot chocolate.
Then looking up in the sky with all the stars.
We both thanked our lucky star, that every one was safe.
Nigh Night... I'm pooped.
See you all next week.
I hope all my readers, know if you need to listen to instructions.
You don't know what might happen.
My thought for the day.
"Don't brag. It is not the whistle that moves the train."
