We Went to Japan! The Jay Dee Show 32

Thanks to our trip to Japan, there was a lack of updates and videos. But since coming back, I’ve been able to put up a few videos, including Japan travel vlogs! There will be many more, though. I also did some Booktube videos. Since the last time, I’ve uploaded 6 videos with a couple more coming today.

All videos except one were uploaded to my main channel. The other was on my old channel dedicated to my daughter and I. I’m reviving it!

Starting off with my main channel, I talked about our trip to Japan before we left. Here it is!

And then we went to Japan with a silence on the channel for two weeks. But when we got back, I started on the Japan videos again. Here is the one all about our flight to Japan. And jet lag.

During our time in Japan, I celebrated a milestone. 1 year on Booktube! Here’s the video, and I’d like you to ask me some questions for a Q&A video.

The next Japan video was about readjusting to life in Japan. We visited many places which may seem mundane to people in Japan, but may be much more interesting for people who have never been to the country.

And finally, my daughter has a very important message about reading and school for you. Check it out.

As I said, there is a third channel! It’s called Tommy and Dad, and I started it long before my science channel. I actually started it when my daughter was only 2 years old. She’s 5 now. I’ve decided to make this into a family vlog channel which I will update a couple times a week. Check out the first video, all about Father’s Day.

Over the next week, I have new science videos coming, as well as a tag video which is very interesting. I’ll also resume Authors Answer and I’d love to have a Star Trek and/or Read the World video up, too. And of course, more Japan!

Let me know which videos you liked the most in the comments below.

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.
