“Where are you?”-Lucy, 6, Home school

Last Tuesday an earthquake happened. We were playing in the hallway then we felt the house shaking side to side. Abbey and I ran down to Abbey’s room and hid under thebed. Thehn Mum shouted, “Where are you?” We said, “We are here.” We ran past the smashing wine bottles then we ran under the snooker table. The earthquake stopped. We couldn’t find our dog called Socks but he was in the car. Our cat called Darling was scattering around the house and the dogs were barking. It was very scary.

    Kia ora Lucy

    Gosh you had a big day running around the house when the earthquake happened. I am so happy you are safe and well.

    You are very smart to get under cover with Abbey under the bed, it’s safe to be under something sturdy.

    I bet Mum was very pleased to hear you shout back “we are here.”

    Poor old Socks and Darling they wouldn’t have known what to do and will need lots of comfort now, maybe that will be Abbey’s and your job now?

    Take care Lucy, please send my very best wishes to your family and friends, we are all thinking of you.

    From Ella in Auckland.

    Dear Lucy,

    We under stand how scary it was. There are pictures on TV that show the damage.
    When you were running through the smashing bottles it must have been real freaky.
