Our very international community celebrates UN Day every year. One of the things we encourage is for every child to dress in clothes that reflect their own home country or culture. It’s pretty amazing. We also have a fun lunch provided by parents with food from our own country. Blake and I always chip in pancakes and maple syrup. Every year they get eaten all up.
This year we celebrated the Blue Jays in our UN Day clothes.
Blake’s friend Neil is from Vancouver, though he appears to be a Leafs fan.
We also send home paper dolls for kids to decorate at home. Can you spot Blake?
Then they get hung up in the corridor to celebrate our diversity at SAS.
Here’s Blake’s class on UN Day.
I see Belgium, Korea, Italy, Singapore, USA, Canada, Taiwan, China and more.
Some pics that have been collecting from everyday @ SAS.
Published Story: Blake wrote a story about walking in the woods with my parents when he was very young. It was a tearjerker for me. Dance practice – Blake goes to dance practice 2x per week. He’s performing this Saturday at our school carnival. CAN’T WAIT to see him move!! We’re looking forward to seeing this movie at Christmas time in Canada.
Fire drill!! & PJ day.
We LOVE the Cardboard Challenge! It was a great day full of great engineering, creativity and fun!
Blake worked hard all day designing cardboard arcade games. He made a Plinko game, a hit-the-mole game, a throw and knock off game and a bunch more. I can’t even remember what the little spinner in the 2nd photo is for, but it had some important purpose, no doubt. One of my favourite constructions (not made by Blake) was this library. This is only one side of it. The other is just as impressive. The grade three girls who made this construction created individual books with illustrations, bar codes and other amazing details. So impressive!
My last Thai entry almost didn’t happen. I had a cold, we cut our beach visit short to head back to the Parhams, but Scott had seen these signs and thought we’d like it and he was right.
It was a 3D art gallery and it was FUN. I’d like to go back with more equipment and take more pics! Everything you see is just painted on the floor and walls. So cool.
There were no flashes allowed and I was the only rule follower in the whole place. Curse my nerdy self.
A huge highlight of our Thailand trip during October Break was the Cartoon Network Waterpark. It was not a school holiday in BKK so we had the place to ourselves for most of the day.
Blake and Scotty LOVED the surf simulator!
I have some video I’d like to add, but I’m squeezing this time to blog at a meeting downtown and I need a vpn to load the videos. Ahhh China.
