NRC Prize and tour

July 27 2016

Because my sister Rose won a contest that you had to fill a quiz and enter for a draw, we went to the NRC to pick up the prize and have a tour of a lab we requested. Inside the prize bag we got a hat, a water bottle, and a measure tape with a flashlight and a chain to put on your backpack. The lab we went into had the exact time for Ottawa. It was really cool!

World Hepatitis Day

July 27 2016

My dad brought my sister and I to City Hall for World Hepatitis Day. We first went in line to get delicious beef hamburgers, which they also served us some tomatoes and some carrots. I also took a frozen water bottle. Then we went to get a stamp paper were you have to go to all 10 stations and get them to stamp your paper and you’re entered for a draw to win some prizes. So we got some stamps, and we also played a Jenga game with questions that are related to Hepatitis C. My question that I got was “How to you get the Hepatitis C disease?” (I may have forgot a bit of the question) and my answer was if you share the same needle. I also learnt that you get it if your blood touches someone else blood like if you get in a fight or if you get tattoos. As a prize for figuring the answer, we got freezies! I chose orange and my sister Rose chose red. They were the “AC” of the outside to beat the heat.

Then it was time for the draw. We won two coupons for two free frozen yogurts, and a beauty basket with all sorts of stuff from Shoppers drug mart.

Earth Rangers at the Library

July 25 2016

My sister Rose and I were both registered for a program at the library in Kanata (Beaverbrooks) called Earth Rangers. We watched a video about what’s it like to be an earth ranger, and then we talked about how to save the earth. Then we got into crafts. You could either make a bird feeder or a bag. I made a bag. You took a recycled bag and you could decorate it. There was even glue guns! I only used liquid gun though. You could use markers, pencils, stickers, feathers, coloured paper, and lots more!

BBQ in Downtown

July 23 2016

My father brought my sister, my grandmother and me to Downtown to have a BBQ. I first got some Cherry Berry flavored cotton candy. Then we lined up for some hamburgers. They also had hotdogs but my dad said if I got a hamburger, he’d give me his bag of chips. I put lettuce on my hamburger, got some Dorito Chips, and a cold bottle of water to drink. Surely enough, my dad gave me his bag of Lays Chips. The food was delicious! We also went inside to get some lunch dessert and a photo of us made from a professional photographer. Then I got some more cotton candy and ate some popcorn and went to KowLoon to see if there was anything to buy. Then we went home.

Boys and Girls Club Baseball

July 22 2016

My mother registered us for baseball. We got a Boys and Girls club shirt, and a baseball mitt, and went to Iverness park. We got some water with our name on it! We had to play two games in a row, not to add the heat!!! (“- , -“) We probably won the first round, and probably lost the second. But overall, it was extremely fun! Once we also got 3 people out in a row! No one on their team got to the first base on one inning! At the end, we got gatorade. I got lemon.

Yetis, Abominable Snowman, Bigfoot, Unicorns?!

July 22 2016

Summer half done?! Goes by fast and fun! So was the Cryptozoology at the library! At the Nepean Branch, we got to learn some new mythical creatures that might have been real! We also learnt some animals that were thought to have been a lie, but turns out they’re actually real animals. Such as a kangaroo (people thought that the kangaroo had two heads. One for the mother, and the Joey in the pouch), a platypus (they actually have venom and can hurt if they bite you. You wont die, but it hurts a lot!), and even an okapi (looks like a zebra and a deer combined!). And who we give credit for finding these so called “mythical” animals? First, the people who have seen them, and second, cryptozoologists (Kript-O-Zoo-au-lau-gist-tz). Crypto, as in mythical, and zoo, as in animals, and gist, as in scientist. So a cryptozoologist is a scientist that studies animals that people think are fake, but have been seen. Sometimes it might be just a branch in the water that might have been the Loch Ness Monster (AKA: Nessie), or the Sea Monster (looks like a snake). But once, they found a whale and guess what they found in his stomach? A (so called) SEA MONSTER?! They also took a picture of the animal. So that proves that either there is actually a Sea Monster, or it was the Loch Ness Monster.

Now to get back. After the presentation, Nick (the librarian in charge of the program) gave us a cut out on wood of a picture of a Big Foot and we got to colour it with paint! Apparently he used the lazer cutter to make that from the Maker Space room. Really cool!

After painting, we got to make a button that proves you are a Big Foot researcher, and Nick also cut out (with the lazer cutter) an example of how big the Big Foot’s foot was! Mine was almost at half.

If you really don’t believe that we did all this, I have a card that they made to prove some more!

Wild About Flowers

July 20 2016

My sister and I were registered for a program at the St-Laurent library. First, we talked about the parts of a flower. The stem, the petals, the leaves, the sepal, etc. Then we talked about what the plants need like water, sun, and soil, etc. Roxanne, the volunteer, then showed us how to make a flower press. First you had to had 2 pieces of wood, 2 pieces of cardboard shaped like a 6 sided shape like something that looks like an octagon (I may have forgot what it was called. I’ll call it sixagon). You also need 2 pieces of paper shaped like a sixagon. You also need a flower. You are supposed to make a sandwich. So put the wood as the bread, the paper as the peanut butter and jelly, and the flower like the meat. So the order should be:

WOOD

Cardboard

PAPER

Flower

Dentist Appointement

July 19 2016

In the morning, we had a dentist appointment for me to get X-rays, updated photos, and impressions of my teeth.  The “puddy” the dentist used to make impressions didn’t taste very well, but it was really fun! Best of all, the “puddy” did’t stick to the teeth! After making the impressions, they lead me to a sink with toothbrushes, cups, a garbage, some bounty towels, even some mouth wash too! I rinsed my mouth with the cups, and used the tooth brush to brush my teeth a little. Then we went to  the X-ray room to take my X-rays. For the first X-ray, they made me bite on a gray “stick” attached to the machine and took an X-ray.  For the second X-ray, they put these “ear plugs” and then took my X-ray. Both pictures lasted about 20 seconds. Then we took my updated photos of me side ways, forwards, and smiling. Then they took a picture with these things in my mouth to make me open wider, and took pictures of my teeth. The older ones were when I was about 8 or 7! I looked really cute!

Art at the Library 2016

July 19 2016

My sister Rose and me are registered for a program at the Carling Library. When we got there, we sat in a half circle to introduce everyone. Even Phobe was there! We told her that Faye moved. We were supposed to make a “statue” with some metal “wire” and plasticine, and some beads. You could bend the metal “wire” and decorate it with beads and plasticine. Nothing in art is wrong, so mine was a good “statue”.
