Going to do laundry at a laundromat

images

Yesterday I went out with mom to get our laundry done. It had to be done at a laundromat because there is no washer or dryer here. While it was being done, there was a movie being shown, I think it was Shark Tales. It was getting too loud for me, so we had to go for a walk. There was a natural food cafe really close to the laundromat so that is where we went. Mom and I got a smoothie to share. It was a mango, ginger, turmeric, lemon, and honey smoothie. I think it was very interesting. Then our clothes were done. some still had to be dried again, so mom and I put them back into the dryer. One of my skirts  got grass stuck  to it and when it came through the dryer, the grass was still all stuck. When it came out, Mom and I had to pick the grass off from where it had stuck.

Then mom and I went to the grocery store because we needed some food.  Mom saw a bag that she wanted to put the groceries in. Then the store gave mom a bag for free because she had bought the right amount to get a free bag.  So instead of one new bag, we have two new bags. That is all for now.

Here is a link to a video that I have made for you all to see or hear.

Going Shopping with Mom and Getting a Cold Drink


imgres-1

Yesterday Mom and I went out for a while, because if I don’t have something to do, I get bored and it bothers me if there is no routine. Mom and I went for a drive to get some groceries. When we were on our drive, Mom saw a little shop that had clod drinks. I got a chai tea freeze (a chai milk shake) and mom got a matcha freeze. Mom had asked the worker at Shark’s Hilo Coffee cafe  if they could tell her which of their coffee would make the best espresso. She also asked about a chocolate making course that was posted in the window. He told her that she had to put her name down so that they would know how to contact her for the next course. Mom and I had found the grocery store. Mom and I went for a stroll in the store.We get some food that we needed but mom could not get some non-dairy yogurt that she needs to eat. Mom and I got POG that is a kind of juice so that are not wondering anymore.

That night, I saw Mom and Dad playing darts but I was getting tired so mom had to come and put me to sleep. That is all for now.

Coming to the Big Island


big-islandYesterday I came by airplane to the island of Hawaii. Here is what you need to know if you have not gone by airplane. The cabin crew will run through the safety of the plane in English, French (in Canada) and sometimes they will do it in one more language. On this plane, they did it in Hawaiian. When Mom, Dad, Robin and I came to the big Island it was supper time, so it did not mess us up too much. On the way back it will be hard to get readjusted back to Halifax time. At least I will not be going back to school. If I was, I would have more freezes, more of whatever it is that looks like a seizure but is not, and I would have my hands over my ears a lot.

It will be July when I come back. The last trip I took was when I was in grade 8 and I went to Rome, London England, Berlin, Paris, Scotland, and Amsterdam. That was an 7 month trip. On the way back we stopped in Berlin again. This time it was for two week. Here is a picture of the apartment that I stayed in with my grandparents, my mom, my dad and Robin for fourteen days.

Now back to the Big Island. Mom had found a bakery that would sell her so food that was already cooked so that she did not have to cook supper last nigh. We have a car here too. I will show you a picture of the car. We will do a lot of hiking here and outdoor kinds of thing such as swimming, walking, hiking and so much more. I will have a lot of stories to tell everyone a school in September. I am coming home on July 11. Here is a picture that means July to me. The plane ride to the big Island was a lot shorter then I had thought it would be. I will tell you all more later but I want to stop writing right now.

July on PEI

Getting Ready to go to the Big Island

Today I am moving from one island to another island. Hopefully, the next island’s bed will be a double bed and I won;t have to move beds. There is one bed for each room. The beds are king-size beds. I hope that Robin will not kick me too much. If she does I will tell her to stop kicking me.

There is a waterfall with a rope swing in to the water. I will go in to that waterfall and will have a lot of fun in the water.

Before I can get to the Big Island I will have to go by plane. When I come back it will be for two days and my family and I will go to see Anikka. We brought some maple syrup with us and we will give it to Anikka and her family. It will be nice to be in the AC for the car ride to the airport. We have a car in the Big Island too. I hope the the next house will have fans or AC.

It will be a lot of fun to be somewhere in the jungle. Hilo has fewer people then Charlottetown. It will be nice to be in smaller town. I will have a lot of fun in Hilo. I will tell you all about the Big Island. I hope I will get to the Zoo on the Big Island, and to the aquarium on that island too. That is all for now.

Going to a waterfall

Yesterday I went to a waterfall with Mom, Dad, and Robin. You had to wear a lifejacket because the water was super deep. Here is a video of the waterfall.

I was really scared for the large drop and the whole thing. Robin had a great time and she made a new friend who helped her get over her fear of going under the waterfall and then jumping into the water. I went to get under the waterfall but I could not do it because the water was moving too fast. Getting in or out was the had part. While I was there with mom and dad, I was asked if it would be a good idea if they took my picture so I could have a new school picture.

The two of them must have taken 40 pictures of me. They will take the best one and make a couple of copies of that one picture. I was told to sit in some trees and they took some with my hat on and some with my hat off.

On are way out mom was talking to Robin’s friend’s mom and dad was tacking to friend’s uncle and the four of us plan to go to their house when we are back on Oahu. I had a great time at the waterfall but I am so happy that it is over.

Out to Foodland and to get a Cool drink

Yesterday I went out with mom. We went for a drive. The car is very hot so you have to put on the AC to 70 or high 60s to keep you cool. When we were in the car we stopped at a Foodland and went in to pick up some groceries. It was really cool in the store. I did not what to leave the store, but I did when mom said that it was time to leave. Then went for a drive in the car. When we got to a spot that sold cool drinks, mom and I went in to get a drink. I got a pineapple smoothy and mom got a cold coffee.

Robin and mom went to a beach. I said no because I have a bad sunburn on my feet. It is from the boat expedition to watch the dolphins. I will go to the beach today and I will be careful on how mach sun I get. Foodland reminds me of a grocery store that is not Costco. The cart are a good size for me to push. That is great for me. That is all for now.

Out to see the Sea Life

Yesterday I went out on a sea adventure to go snorkelling. I sow coral, bright fish and a sea turtle. I did not go into the water when the dolphins came by.

Spinner dolphinsI got to have some pineapple drink and a mango drink they where both really great. There was a lot of bright fish and lots of colourful coral. I got to see the dolphins play. It was really amazing to see. I will get some pictures from the outing and put then up for you all to see.

You had to take off your footwear before you could get onto the boat. When I was coming off the boat the dock was rally hot under my feet and I had to walk along the dock back and I did not put my shoes back on until we were off of the dock.

The ocean life was really great to see. I won’t forget that outing for a long time. I hope that we can go into the water some but it wont be with the motorboat guys again, and that will be too bad. There was a lot of hassle to get onto this sea excursion but with a lot of hassle we got to go out to see the dolphins. We got giving lunch on the boat after everyone was back on to the boat. Here are some pictures of the sea life and a link to the site that mom found the dolphin swim. When I got home I had a sunburn on both of my feet. It was a lot of fun and exiting to see and be in the water.

Out to the Beach and wanting to eat that bird for a meal!

Yesterday I went to the beach and put my feet in to the water for Ms. Barkhouse. The water felt nice and warm. Here is a picture of the water for you all to see. Then that night, I went back to the beach with my mom, Robin and my father and we were all playing in the waves. Robin and Dad where surfing in the waves. My dad would like to learn how to surf and I think Robin would to join him in the lessons. The waves were really strong and kept pulling me under the water.
Yesterday I went out with mom for a while. We got a chicken for a meal to make my dad laugh because he said that he wanted to eat the bird that would not stop making noise outside. So mom and I what to the grocery store and when saw a chicken so we bought it. Then we went for a drive and we stopped at a restaurant and went inside to get some food. When we were inside, Mom saw the loco moco. I did not get that dish. If anyone does not know what it is, here is what it is. It is hamburger patties top with fried eggs and it get better; macaroni salad and rice. That does not sound as though it is a delish dish. If you come to Hawaii, I would not recommend that you get it to eat. Order the dish and take a picture of it then leave that dish alone! Here is the Hawaii song that I wrote with Anna who is my music therapist. That is all for now.

Mom and dad joked that the roosters in the morning made them think of a song called “The call of the wrecking ball” by a band called X. They even played the song for Robin and me.

A bit Roman history

So far I have seen a lot of walls that were made by Romans. One of the most famous is Hadrian’s wall, in Britain. This particular wall was built to stop the Scottish from attacking Britain, which was part of the Roman empire at the time.

The Romans enjoyed entertainment, they had nothing like a modern movie. Instead they had things like, gladiator fights and chariot races.

Gladiator fights:

Many people think that gladiators fought animals but they did not. The gladiators fought different types of gladiators. If you were to spend a day at the colosseum (gladiator arena) this is what it would be like.

First you would see some people who were sentenced to death being chained up with some badly treated wild animals out with them. Next hunters would come out with more wild animals and fight them and normally win. Then it would be half time, and people would eat lunch and watch an act put on by singers. Then you might get another act, if you do not then it’s time for the gladiators. Their would be one fight in between two different types of gladiators.

Chariot races:

Chariot races were the second favorite entertainment available after gladiator fights. The most horses on a chariot that I have heard of is four in a horizontal row. Only one horse chariots have a vertical row.

Now you know more on Roman history, I hope that you will learn more on your own.

Cosmic Wimpout

In my last post I mentioned Cosmic Wimpout, in this post I’m going to tell you how my games yesterday and today went.

Yesterday was my best Cosmic Wimpout day of all. I won three games in a row against my dad. Once I won by rolling five sixes at once and that is a automatic win. All the other times I won by rolling 500 points before my dad.

Today, I lost each time we played. Most of today it was a close game but one time I barely made it to the hundreds. I think that I used up all my luck yesterday what do you think?

That’s it on this subject for now, Robin.
