Keep Calm and Meditate!

Right now I am still waiting for my school to start. There is a teacher’s strike, so my Daddy and Mommy are teaching me classes now. My kindergarten is finished, and I should be starting Grade 1 now, but I am learning reading and writing and maths and even German at home. Sometime the German guy plays chess, checkers or even backgammon with me. These are some new things I learned in the summer.

It was a very good summer because we did a lot of cool things. For example, I went bowling for the first time. At first, it was not much fun because all the bowling balls would get stuck on the side, but then I got better after some practice, and I liked it so much! I also liked going to the Van Dusen garden and am really good with the maze. We played the Minotaur, and I kept chasing Daddy and Mommy through the maze.

I also liked the fireworks better than before, but France was too smoky. And the Stanley Park Choo-Choo train was fun with some of our friends. I also liked all the parades, especially the Canada Day one because it was cool. And one of the best things was Cirque du Soleil. I even want to become a Circus of Soleil guy, the one that dances. Actually I have some shows at home for my Mommy and Daddy, which are called “Frozen Monster” and “Magic Wizard” and they liked both a lot.

So yes, it is a long time since I last posted here, but I was very busy with things. But even when I am busy, I know it is important to keep calm. There is a lot of construction work all the time and I can’t wait for it to finish, but for now I am preparing for my next show or maybe the next game of chess with my Daddy.

An Original Angry Birds Story Created by Me

December 22, 2013

Before my fifth birthday I came up with my first original story. I was saying it, and Daddy was writing it down. Then he read it to me a few times, and I corrected him on a couple of things. Daddy says that is called editing. Well, it sure feels good to have my own story on my favorite game. Here it is:

One Day Bomb Bird went to the pigs. Then he was going and he found an egg and one pig stole it. He tried and tried and then he exploded. Boom! The pig crashed to the pig’s machine. Then out of the ground came up the Space Pig. Then Bomb Bird saw that the pig with three eyes was driving it. A purple thing was coming from space and when he saw it he was surprised that it was Pink Bird. The pigs came and trapped her, but in the end Bomb Bird got all the pigs with Pink Bird’s help. With the machine the robot with two eyes grabbed the egg for Bomb Bird and Pink Bird.

The End

(because we ran out of space in our Angry Birds Space Coloring Book)

 

A great summer and my Kindergarten days

November 8, 2013

Arameis School

So it has been a long time since I last posted on this blog. In fact, it was about a year ago. Since then I have successfully graduated from my preschool with my graduate ceremony and certificate. Preschool was great fun and I have made a couple of friends, both of them girls.

My summer was pretty good. We did a lot of fun things like go on a boat tour, the night market, the many parades, and one of my most favorite: the big pink bus. It was a lot of fun to sit upstairs and watch everything from above. It was something I always wanted to do, and my Daddy took me on this trip.

Yet for the most part I was doing the countdown for the first day of kindergarten. I could not wait for the big day to arrive where I would get to hang out and play with the big boys in my new school. I was also curious to learn more about the hot lunch program and immediately liked the idea of recess.

When that day finally arrived, I ran to school. I was curious and excited. Since then I have also sometimes taken my bike to school. One of the scary moments was the Earthquake drill, but the good thing is that nothing bad happened; it was just pretend. And yes, I turned five. A hand full of fingers now shows my age; I can do many things on the playground I could not do a year ago.

 

 

First Day of Preschool yay!

October 4, 2012

So on my fourth birthday, I also had my very first official day of preschool! I have been so excited for many days and finally, I got to be a big boy and play and also learn new things at school! My teachers are so nice to me, and I even have my own name tag for my things there!

And then after I finished, we went to get a really yummy Angry Birds chocolate, and my Daddy gave me  a great present, an Angry Bird board-game that comes with the piggies and a slingshot! I’ve been playing with it and it is so good to have birthdays and preschools!

The Toopy and Binoo Show!

September 16, 2012

I still can’t believe I got to see the Toopy and Binoo Show last weekend! It was a long countdown; for more than a couple of months I had been waiting until my Daddy told me that *this day* we will go and see Toopy and Binoo! I still was not too sure what to expect.

When we got there, we saw lots of kids and they even had a parking for strollers. Although they had a booster seating, I got to sit on my Daddy’s lap for the entire show so I could see everything better. It was Toopy and Binoo’s room indeed; I recognized the blue couch. When Binoo entered, I could not believe my eyes and then Toopy showed up walking through the door.

They had many other characters from the show like the marsh-mellows, the octopus, the dusteroos and even fish lips, but my favorite was the shiny star. When they went all the way to space, she told Toopy that the perfect song he was looking for was in his heart, and it turned out to be for his best friend Binoo.

And finally, as we walked out, I was asking for a patchy-path and guess what? My Daddy got me one and I gave him (Patchy-patch) a big hug and was excited to take him home with me. Actually I gave him a ride on my stroller.

 

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man

Me at the Cineplex

This was my very first experience at the movie theatre. After watching the trailer, I was very impressed with the new Spider-Man movie, especially the scene where he saves the boy from a falling car. That was really the best scene of the movie.

What was also really cool was that the popcorn came with a Kinder Surprise. And we sat there in the dark and it was very good except I did not like the face of the bad guy very much. It was a little scary because he looked like a scary lizard. But good thing that my parents covered my face with a hat whenever he made his scary face.

I really liked going to the movie theatre and want to go again some other time. Next time when they have Cars 3, Iron Man 3 or maybe – and I am waiting for this movie anxiously and impatiently – Angry Birds the movie! That would be even better.

 

 

Tricycle

Tricycle

Me on my tricycle

“I like to ride my tricycle, I like to ride my trike!”

Now pretty much every day I go out on my tricycle and I pedal away on the streets. It is good exercise and I can feel it in my legs; they are getting much stronger. As you can see in this pic I can do it on my own, but sometimes Daddy and Mommy give me a push here and there.

It is a much more active way of moving around compared to my stroller, and I am taking this much more seriously. In my stroller, I was able to take a nap here and then, but with my tricycle I have to look serious and look straight ahead onto the road. I can’t wait to get the bell so I can ring my way through the crowds and let them know that I am pushing through on my tricycle.

When I go to the park, I feel like I am the new sensation, the kid with the red tricycle they must call me. And if the kids are nice, I will let them ride around a bit, but just a bit because my tricycle has become part of my new lifestyle and goes with me wherever I go!

That wonderful time of the year!

Yes, Christmas is fun indeed! We did many things and the best was obviously the visit by Santa overnight. I met him in person and asked him to bring me my Monster trucks from Cars, and so he did! I left him cookies and milk and when I woke up they were gone, a sure sign that he had come by. And, of course, not to forget, the great presents.

I do think I have been a good boy. And as you can see there is the really big present in the background, and it took my parents the whole day to put that train set together. It has also been good to be all together as a family because my Dad was very busy this year and now he had some time to play and talk with me. 

Yes, Christmas was great and I also enjoyed New Year. I was a bit scared because I thought there would be a lot of noise but it was fun actually and I got to beat the pots and pans for some noise and shouted “Happy New Year” from the balcony.

 

 

Canada Day Celebrations

July 17, 2011

July 1, Canada Day, this year was great fun. We went to various events. A few of the highlights were the military robot that would take paper out of my hand, yummy food and ice cream and, of course, the parade. We had a couple of flags that we were waving and some on our face and it felt just like before a hockey game.

I enjoyed the parade the most. Apart from police sirens and firetrucks, they had a green gaga (garbage truck). And many people were dancing as they walked past us and at one point I joined them. I started dancing in front of Daddy and Mummy and then decided to walk on just like the parade people. Three times my parents had to catch me on the way but the people loved it as they were cheering me on and taking pictures and videos. In a way, I was part of the parade too.

Then we had burgers and they said that there would be fireworks later on, but I had mixed feelings about them at the time as I know they can be a little loud and I don’t like loud noise very much. But in the end, we were all very tired from the long day and we ended up sleeping and missed the fireworks altogether. It was a fun day and I like the summer because there is so much to do!

I’m a Hockey Player

June 6, 2011

I really like sports, whether it is T-ball (more commonly known as soccer), Basketball, or even American football, at least my version of it. But hockey has been one of my most favorite ones and especially now during the Cup fever here. Everybody is really excited about the Canucks and I have been practicing my own hockey skills.

Here I am at one of the coolest places in the summer called Kidzone. They got so many different activities for kids like me. At home I often play hockey with my Dad and Mom, where I am sometimes a player from the Canucks, Chicago or Sharks, and other times I am a goalie. Most of the moves I have copied from the games on TV.

Apart from playing I also enjoy “crowd surfing.” To go outside when our team has won a game and high-five many happy boys and girls and watch all those happy cars drive by. It goes crazy then and everybody screams. I like that best and then come home and play a little bit more hockey.
