The kids had so much fun hanging with their friends and learning about different cultures. They played games, ate, cooked, made crafts, listened to music...and played!
Dax and Jakob played and laughed, learned and flipped and had the time of their lives just being boys,
Tatyanah and a bunch of girls enjoyed their time and she learned a lot about different places. They had chinese soup, made chinese name tags, played chinese skipping rope. The dressed like Ukrainian kids and played music and Jakob did some dancing he use to do. They learned how some kids used simple rocks and earned about their games. They wore saris and talked about India and place and life there.
It wa definatly wort the trip, Multicultural Center in Stony Plain, AMAZING!
Tim is the big kid, at 17 he has done great things with his life. He is presently at NAIT finishing his EMR course, and taking EMT next term and then Paramedic. He is a great kid and is very easy going, except when tired or hungry.
He loves free running and/or Urban gymnastics. he repels of things he shouldn't but I think he is pretty safe so far. He goes to California often, and although he says it is mostly to see his friends, Marina is the main reason ( Mama loves Marina).
Tatyanah just turned 11, March 13 and had a blast with her friends. She loves ringette and placed silver in Provincials. She just finished ringette last weekend and can not wait until it starts again. She loves babies and kids and wants to be a mom. Although she wants to adopt her kids.
Tatyanah loves reading and reads 3-6 novels at a time, she lives at the library and is always bike riding all summer! She loves her friends and plays violin!
Jakob is a nature animal loving guy! He has always been unschooled and given a chance will tell you 1000000000000's of facts about animals. He wants to be a conservationist or a vet. H wants to get a job this summer, although I am not sure why, he can not save a dime.
He just had surgery on St Patrick's day on his teeth (they like to stay up high and not come down), but he is doing great.
Jakob loves Takoda, his dog and they do agility and he fosters birds, presently Emmie!
Jakob was just promoted yesterday in Air Cadets to Leading Air Cadet, he is proud!
