Hello I am back with my artical of the day! Let's start with my day so far. First I got up from my bed and went downstairs to watch my morning videos like I always do. Today I watched Chip and Potato.(They are my favorite). After that my Daddy called me upstairs for breakfast(Max!...Max!) We were going to eat pancakes but my Daddy refused so we ate oatmeal.(It was ok but you can still improve) While I was eating I looked in my lunch just like my Daddy told me to, when I looked inside... it was... MARVELOUS! EVERYTHING LOOKED SO GOOD! I finished my breakfast and then my Daddy called me to get ready for school, so I did. Then me and my Daddy, holding hands, went to school so that I could learn new things. I noticed I was a little late when we got in. first we did wordwork.(For me it was simple, but for other kids it was hard). After I had social studies. After that we had gym. I got really hot in gym. After it was short recess I stayed near the line up the whole recess because I always want to be first. Then the bell rang: brrrr brrrr. Everyone raced to their line up. Our teacher came to pick us up for science. We went to Ms.Jorgensen's class, today I sat next to a boy named Odie. He helped me with the things I didn't know how to do.(I helped him to). After it was math time. Today Seth sat next to me today.(He always sits next to me). After we had long recess, I was in the audition for the "Hobbit". I got in the practice but I could't practice, it was just so simple. After I had to go back to class because Roxy was there. She told us about the First Nation symbols. She showed us a sheet of paper that had a lot of the First Nation markings. And she gave us small stones and fine sharpies for us to copy a symbol from the sheet onto the small stone. I chose a turtle from the sheet and copied it with my sharpie onto the small stone. (I chose a turtle because they are one of my favourite animals). After Roxy went home, we did Social Studies AgAiN! I forget what we did at Social Studies so let's go to when I went home with Daddy. I played the whole time. I read a book first. Then I played monster trucks. Then I colored with Daddy. Then I watched a video. I watched two of my morning videos. I practice guitar and piano. After my dad called me upstairs for dinner. We ate a small hotpot my Daddy made. Then we went downstairs. I wrote the beginning of this article before I watched my end-of-the-day videos. Then my Mom came home from work. I ran upstairs and gave her a BIG hug! After I read a book about Temple Grandin. After my Mom read me a French book. After it was my bed time! THE END!
today I went to school when it was slushy and wet. (I really didn't like that part). At school we did many things like gym, journals (my favorite) and other things like that. I REALLY liked the sandwich my Mom gave me for lunch, it was fantastic! after that we went swimming. I didn't like it so much because there were too many people, and I still don't like it so much. After swimming, we went back home to eat dinner, for dinner we had fish and chips. I really liked the fish and chips my dad made for dinner. Thank you for reading this article of mine and I hope you liked it! THE END
Today it was really slushy and wet, I was so annoyed that I had to go to school. I was like, "What the... now I have to go to school?!" I had to wear rain pants and change my socks at long recess and short recess. After long recess I ate 1 cupcake from Isaac's birthday yesterday. They were okay but I didn't really like them. (My Mom's cupcakes are much better.) Now I am going to skip some stuff that is NOT important. Okay, i'ts 3:00 PM, today I get to go home!! I play a little bit and then it is time to go to guitar. (Boring.) I learned a new note at the guitar lesson. We come back home and eat pasta for dinner. Then I wrote this article about the day : )) THE END!
When: November 11 - 10:45am
Where: Cenotaph in Stan Clarke Park, Downtown Squamish
A Remembrance Day ceremony will be held at the Downtown Squamish Cenotaph in Stan Clarke Park beginning at 10:50 a.m. on Monday, November 11.
Max told us we need to stop and think when the clocks sound the 11th hour.
We loved listening to the music at the ceremony.
A hot day! : ) Max and I went to Alice lake after school. We were hoping for an ice cream there and we chose it over Brohm and Cat lakes for that reason. Ice cream is only on weekends for now. But guess what : ) We had a wonderful time at the south beach. It was Max's first time jumping off a dock. Having level 4 swimming mattered. He would run the length of the dock and jump - big smile on his face - in the cool nice water. What a fun experience!
A Private Fortune: Simonides, that extraordinary author of lyric poems, found an excellent remedy for his straitened circumstances by travelling around the most famous cities of the Asia, singing the praises of victorious athletes in exchange for a fee. When he had grown wealthy in this venture, he was ready to take a sea voyage and go back to his native land (he was born, so they say, on the island of Ceos). He boarded a ship, but a terrible storm (plus the sheer age of the ship) caused it to sink in the middle of the sea. Some of the passengers grabbed their money belts, while others held onto their valuables and any possible means of subsistence. A passenger who was more curious than the rest asked the poet, ‘Simonides, why aren’t you taking along any of your own stuff?’ He replied, ‘All that is mine is right here with me.’ It turned out that only a few were able to swim ashore, while the majority drowned, weighed down by what they were carrying. Then bandits arrived and took from the survivors whatever they had brought ashore, stripping them naked. As it happened, the ancient city of Clazomenae was not far off, which is where the shipwrecked people then turned. In this city there lived a man inclined to literary pursuits who had often read Simonides’s compositions and who was his great admirer from afar. He recognized Simonides simply from his manner of speaking and eagerly invited him to his house, regaling him with clothes and money and servants. Meanwhile, the rest of the survivors carried around placards, begging for food. When Simonides happened to run into them, he took one look and exclaimed, ‘Just as I said: all that is mine is right here with me, but everything that you took with you has now vanished.’
