‘Why Not Minot’

I was in Minot for the majority of the two glorious days of no school – aka my freedom weekend. I did get the book Four: A Divergent Collection which, is really good so far. 

Here are some of the highlights of my trip –

Hotel Waterpark:

Unlike last time I went to this waterpark, I had only gone down the purple slide once.  Purple being the most freakiest.  Being in a place of confinement going 50 km/hour is not that much of a joy ride.  I went on the Orange and Yellow slides (being rated not so freaky) 6 times. Each slide 3 times before attempting the Purple again. When I finally got to the Purple one after climbing 55 steps (not including platforms) to get to it, I counted to 20 before pushing myself off. In the end, I went on ‘Purple Monster’ as I call it now 5 whole times. Most times, I was singing ”Dark Horse” by Katy Perry to slow myself down.  It worked as I lost myself in the song.  I enjoyed it even though I was going down like a rocket.

Finding New Things:

Even though I’m proud to be a Canadian, I do enjoy going to the U.S once in awhile. My reasons: It’s something to do, I get to go to new places and, I find new things.  Some gross ex: Cookie Dough Oreo (you may think otherwise).  Some TOTALLY EPIC, ex: Goldfish Mac’n’Cheese and MEGA Goldfish

I almost died when I saw this. 😀

 

 This weekend I got to spend quality time with my mother – especially when she got us lost in Minot.  She took a wrong road.  Even though we are 5 million hours away from the nearest U.S. city,  it’s worth it to experience something other then where I am.

 

Kids N Kops with Big Brothers Big Sisters

Ever since I moved to Saskatchewan I felt uncomfortable with the changes in my life.  One organization is helping me get over those changes and that is Big Brothers Big Sisters. What is BBBS you ask? Well my fellow readers, read on!!

BBBS is an organization that helps kids across Canada in different circumstances.  Some are from very busy families with one parent, some are poor or some come from bad neighbourhoods.  One program that I’m in is the Big Sister program.  It helps the kids to know that they are really important and are apart of the world.  I’m in BBBS because my mom works and my dad is really  sad and can’t do that much with me.  I’m really looking forward to getting a Big Sister.

One of the things I got to do this summer is a camp called Kids n Kops. It’s a program where 12 kids ages 9-12 learn what it’s like to be an RCMP Cadet.  One of the funders is Sask. lotteries.  I did a lot of pretty amazing things like: going to the Regina Science Centre, staying in a hotel with a water slide and a pool,  RCMP heritage centre and parade, and meeting the Yorkton mayor.  I learnt new and very interesting things about Saskatchewan and the national police service.

At the end of the week we had a big award ceremony with the other kids.  I got the title ‘Cadet of the week’ which I was very proud of myself. After we went bowling to celebrate.

BBBS is a really great organization that has soooo many different people giving up their time to help kids feel special.  My mom and I are helping the organization clean flowers this week.  How in the world do you clean a flower?
