Matilda the Musical

Jon On Tuesday July 19, we went to the musical Matilda. I really enjoyed the songs, especially “Naughty”, “Bruce”, “Revolting Children”, and “Telly.” I loved the character Miss Honey who had a lovely voice singing “My House.” I also liked Miss Trunchbull who was very mean. I enjoyed watching the kids swing as they sang “When I Grow Up.” We’ve all been singing the songs ever since.

Halloween 2015

Jon I had a great Halloween. The theme was the movie Inside Out. I was dressed up as Anger. My dad built the head out of foam and glue. He also made flames come out of Anger’s head using a fan, a light and some tissue paper.

My mom built shelves for the memory balls, which were made out of balloons. She put some lights to make them glow and paddles made out of construction paper.

While I was handing out candy we put on the soundtrack to Inside Out. One of the kids trick-or-treating was dressed up as Disgust. When she saw the balls she yelled, “CORE MEMORIES!” which was fun.

I stayed out for an hour and a half and had a good time.

Youth at Work

Jon I came back from camp with a cold virus but when I got better, I started the Youth at Work program at Bloorview. At Bloorview I helped with the car wash.

I did a variety of occupations in different places outside of Bloorview at StopGap, High Park Children’s Garden, New Circles, and the North York Harvest Food Bank. At StopGap I painted ramps in different colours. At High Park I watered the gardens, and at the food bank I sorted boxes.

I also recorded some live updates and interviews, both at Bloorview and on location. Enjoy!

Merrywood 2015

Jon I had another great session at Camp Merrywood. I did archery and crafts. I also did music and drama with Jelena. She helped me make a broadway musical called Journey Through Time. I was the narrator. Also, I did the Wild. I had lots of fun.

I exploded with Joy. I’ve designed her from the new Disney Pixar movie Inside Out on day 3 in pottery.

On day 4 Jackie did Romeo’s Soliloquy. I remembered it.

I didn’t have time to go canoeing or sailing or go to the beach because it started to rain. Instead, I decided to go swimming. I told some jokes in the pool.

On day 8 the theme was Sherlock Homes. On day 9 at the talent show I told 4 jokes and performed the play. I started to catch a virus on day 10, which was the goodbye banquet. Steph put on an amazing slideshow with some good camp photos. Then, we had a dance. This session was good.

The CN Tower

Jon On Friday January 2, we went to the CN tower. We waited in line for the glass elevator. We were the first ones in. As the elevator went up, I took a look at the view down below me. It was cool.

We went to the Horizons restaurant for lunch. I ordered steak with french fries, and chatted with Alastair and Jim. After that, we went around the tower to see the glass floor.

We took a Vine video of me on the glass floor and also took one of mom jumping on it.

We also went outside on the outer deck and took pictures. That was a very cold blast of wind up there. We had a great time! Thanks to Jim and Wendy!
