My Daughter’s St. Patrick’s Day Project

Tomorrow, my daughter has a project due for her kindergarten class.  It’s a Leprechaun trap. And this is what we made together.

She did a lot of the colouring herself. The rainbow is hers, as well. Those yellow circles are gold coins. You see, a Leprechaun climbs the ladder, follows the coins, sees a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and falls through a trap door.

It’s not a masterpiece, but she loved making it with me. I even found her keeping it near herself while she watched My Little Pony on Netflix. She was protecting it. She’s pretty proud of it. When it was time for bed, she wanted to take it up to her room, but she’d just be distracted by it.

Tomorrow morning, I just have to remember to dress her in green.

Best Christmas Ever?

When I was a kid, I loved Christmas. It meant toys. It meant turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. It meant two weeks off from school.

This Christmas is totally different. This time, my daughter gets to have her first Christmas in Canada with a Christmas tree and plenty of presents. There are some things that she’s been wanting a lot. On Christmas morning, she’s going to be excited. She’s going to be so incredibly happy. I don’t care so much about what I’m getting. I want to see her reaction. I want to watch her open her presents. I think seeing her happy is the best present I could ever get.

And on a side note, I’m going to have a special video up on Christmas Day. It’s not related to this blog, but I think the message can apply to this blog, as well. I’ll be leaving a post with a similar message. Look forward to it!

Snow? Snow!

It’s only October 1st, but it snowed. Not here, though. You see, in northern Alberta and British Columbia, it snowed in many places. Here, it was too warm, so it rained a lot.

In a way, I’m excited about seeing snow. My daughter will get to play in the snow for the first time. She’s seen it in Japan, but that stuff was very wet and she’d get soaked if she tried playing in it. Sometimes, she says she’s excited. Other times, she says she doesn’t like the cold, so doesn’t want snow.

My daughter wants to make a snowman. She also says she wants to make snow angels. I wonder what she’ll think after being in the snow for five minutes. But when will it snow here? Probably sometime this month. But no idea.

Who likes snow?

My Daughter Shows Off Her Library Books!

I’m starting something new. My daughter gets to take home two books from her school’s library. So, we’re going to show her library books together! Warning: This video gets a bit silly. Wait until the end where she talks about a topic completely unrelated to books. But it’s cute. The cuteness compels you to watch.

Have you read either of these books? What did you think of her silliness? Let me know in the comments section below.

And did you subscribe? If you do, you get to see all of the videos I make. I don’t put them all up on here.

A Busy Day

It’s been quite the day. Busiest Saturday in a while. I spent a lot of time in the basement, and not so much time on my computer. Here’s what we achieved.

This morning, I recorded two videos, including one with a couple big announcements. I’m reaching another milestone and I’m starting a new video series. That video should be up tomorrow.

Later on, we took all of the bottles and cans to the bottle depot. It was my wife’s first time to visit one. What’s nice about doing that is that you get some money back.

And then, after dinner, my sister and I put together some furniture from IKEA in the basement. I spent most of the evening down there, and we haven’t completely finished. You see, my daughter wanted to help so much, but because of her age and lack of skills with tools, she couldn’t. She was upset about it. So, we’re going to let her push the drawers into the dresser tomorrow. At the same time, we watched several movies, including Big Hero 6, the Steve Jobs movie, and the old Peter Sellers Casino Royale, which was a James Bond movie, though not part of the regular series. Research shows that it was a comedy satire.

So, that was my busy Saturday. How was yours?
