We also went to a cheese castle where they sold all kinds of cheese and some kinds of honey. While there, I goofed around with my little cousins, Hank and Davis. The next day, all of the girls went on a shopping spree. Us boys went to a awesome restaurant called AJ Bombers. There
Another activity that I took part in was bubble painting. This was where I put paint in a tray and added water. Once this was mixed properly I got the children to use a straw and blow through it to make bubbles. Once the bubbles were there a piece of paper was placed over them to create a bubble effect picture. There were two different trays of which one was purple and the other one was orange. This is so that they were able to make their own choice on what colour they wanted to use.
I remember the rattling and squeaking of the bunk beds as we jumped around laughing. My room was basic except the bunk beds that I found fun in many different ways from jumping off the top into pillows to pretending the floor was lava with my siblings, those memories will never leave my mind. With my brother, David Gaipo Junior, being ten years older than me it was hard to connect at times, but I could look up to him and learn without him even knowing. One difference was that, my brother and I had different mothers with that obstacle I only saw him every weekend if I felt lucky.
Everyday we would do something new, for example, go karting, board games, card games, but specifically the one that sticks out in my mind is geocaching. We would always go out to new places and look for geocaches. It was exhilarating when I actually found one and got to take what was in the container and put something new back in.
My Aunt loved taking us places, she would take us to the mall to get coloring books and toys, and we would also go to the market to get food and to get my brother Bakugans which were popular at the time. She also got us strawberry ice cream, and took us to the park. The park got renovated while we were there so we got to see its transformation from a sad little playground to a giant wooden playscape that contained a ship, two seesaws, four metal swing sets, and a bike path.
After linking the hymn to jazz, something clicked. My mind perceived that life is like a jazz piece. Family provides a base by setting rules and expectations for you that you must follow, but after that, they give you freedom to choose what path you follow. And as you trek down that path, you experience the ups and downs of life and improve your lifestyle on the way.
I liked to play games with my friends and sister like battle ship and hide and seek. We liked to go our Grandma and Grandpa’s house we ran around and played soccer.
Favorite memory as a child well the one I cherish is meeting my real mom for the first time. I may not have been the best towards her but in my defense she left me when I was 1. I remember sitting on her lap coloring with my little brother in a
We made wax candles, cooked our lunch, played the games the pioneer children played, washed clothes, and wove blankets. My favorite activity was cooking
Sophie and I would pack our 50 pound bags including all of our clothing, shoes, and all the hair accessories we owned. We would also throw in a picture of mom and dad, our pillows, blankets, and stuffed animals, just for fun! We would get ready for bed and then kneel beside grandma and grandpa and say a prayer. Then they would send us to the pink bedroom. Sophie and I would use grandmas big long pillow and try and make a bridge from one of the beds to the other. This always resulted in falling and then getting in trouble. We would eventually fall asleep and then wake up the next morning ready to start the cooking lesson. I remember making some sort of cookie dough, and as I was adding and baking; Sophie was tossing. She had rolled some cookie dough into a ball and was tossing it into the air. She did this for a couple of seconds and then all the sudden the dough ball didn’t come down. I’m pretty sure I was in charge of distracting grandma while Sophie went to go get a stool and pull the dough
While I was volunteering at a local emergency shelter with a friend, a team of gospel singers visited the shelter, hoping to enliven spirits through song. Being worship leaders at our own church, my friend and I anxiously, yet excitedly, joined them. Before singing, we all agreed on a list of simple, but powerful, Christian songs that everyone would be able to sing along to. The melodies, piercing the atmosphere, soon had shattered families standing hand in hand, joining our growing chorus of hope for a speedy recovery in Houston.
I believe I was around ten or eleven so this would have been 2008 - 2009 I was living with my aunt and uncle up in the Rocky Mountains around Denver, Colorado. It was summer about July and I had just got back from Charleston, South Carolina my mother was teaching some bachelor level painting courses like Advanced methods of Painting and Art history at Claflin University. I had been home for about
Once me and my sister went to spend the night at our cousin's house. My cousins have four acres of forest in there backyard so my cousin Trenton and I found some really long tree branches and we built a fort. It was pretty cool. Then we watched a funny movie called Knucklehead.
