My long trip

It didn’t work.I tried playing on my ipad it didn’t work then I tried lying down on my pillow that didn’t work but I went to sleep anyway .A few minutes went by so I was talking to myself in my head,then I was thinking about getting car sick , normaly I would get car sick because of the weird smell from dad or the car smell.A couple of minutes  later we was at lake taupo we stopped by the lake.I stayed in the car drinking hot milo but then I heard my dad talking on the phone he said “I might not make it all the way to your house because when i’m in taupo I feel like going to mum and dads house (Nan and Grandads house) and Benji is car sick” Dad is lieing about Benji car sick.I was mad. “ NOOOOOO!!!!!!! I don’t want to go to Nan and Grandads house I want to go to Berals house” I screamed. Dad said “we are nearly at Nans house and we are not even close to Berals Nan and Grandad are going to drop you off tommoro,” Caid was shouting “YAY!!!!!” because he we weren’t going to Nans house. While we was driving I was looking at the window stearing at the hills at the hills.A minute later we was at putararu.I was so excited.I think going there isn’t bad after all.

You have painted a very clear picture in the head of the reader about your long car trip! You have used different sentence types to help make your message clear (some short and simple and some compound).
Remember to make sure you punctuate your speech and tell the reader who is talking to help make the message even clearer, (Also there is always 1 space after a full stop)
