2013-07-22 也学琴了


    今天是小米第一次去上了钢琴课,这么重要的事件还是要记录一下的。2013-07-22 <wbr>也学琴了 本来我以为小米是与钢琴无缘了的,没想到还峰回路转了,真是个好消息呀!以前有不少妈妈质疑我:“你怎么不给小米学钢琴?”真是冤枉啊,我怎么可能不给她去学么,但对于才艺方面,我的观点始终没有变过,那就是:你有兴趣,想学,那咱就去学,我还不至于穷到要省这个钱,但若孩子坚决反对,那我也绝不会勉强孩子去学。在我看来,孩子学才艺基本是用来丰富生活的,如果把孩子逼得变成受苦受难,那又何必呢,想让孩子在才艺方面出类拔萃今后靠这吃饭的家长估计是很少的吧。
    小米原先坚决反对学琴,相当一部分原因是受到以前一个邻居小女孩的影响,那个小女孩自从开始学琴后,小米看到她每天傍晚都是被她妈妈监督着在练琴,基本就不出来玩了,即便小米去他们家,她也是很无奈地在练琴,没时间跟小米玩,这让小米觉得学琴是件很受罪的事。而这次小米打算要学琴,是因为她的好朋友Olivia最近在开始学琴了,这明显影响了小米,她觉得自己也想要学琴了,瞧:榜样的力量是无穷的!Olivia受小米的影响,也在开始学画画了,游泳也是受到小米的鼓励,当然,两人玩电脑游戏也是在相互鼓励2013-07-22 <wbr>也学琴了
    有了愿望,小米妈自然是趁热打铁,感谢Henry妈推荐了Henry学琴的那个老师,是个退休了的老太太,上周六带小米去见了老师,感觉还挺好的,老师给小米面试了一下,我发现小米在老师面前的表现挺不错,表现得注意力集中很认真,看来孩子确实需要别人来教,平日里我想给她说点什么总是给我瞎敷衍,很难有那么认真听的时候。小米虽然没有学过,但老师问的问题竟然都能答上来,还给老师弹了"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star",虽然是非常简单的宝宝歌,但也很不错了,毕竟没学过,自己平时玩过而已。
    今天傍晚小米爸陪着去学琴的,带回来好几本练习的书,一回到家就开始练习了,问她学琴难不难,回答说“我觉得学得很好”,晚上洗澡完了竟然还自觉地又练习,真是太好了,好歹是个好的开始吧。目前家里有一个keyboard,暂时也可以练习用,再观察一段时间,倘若能保持兴趣,再考虑买个钢琴,暂时先不投资。学琴一次半小时,老太太是退休了闲来无事找点事做,她周一、周六和周日教孩子,其余时间休息。
    今后要不要考级,这个我还没有想过,据说考过8级今后高中时能算2个学分,有这点好处,但我发现很多人貌似学琴就奔着考级去了,我一同事说她儿子跟着一个香港人学了2年钢琴,就考过了8级,而自从考过8级那天起就再也没有摸过家里的钢琴了,坚决不碰了,花不少钱和时间搞得对钢琴厌恶到这个程度就为了那2个学分,这笔交易肯定不能算成功吧。

2013-07-19 随便更新一下


    忙忙碌碌中暑假已经过去3周了,今年暑假没有给小米安排太多的夏令营,因为前几年参加过不少夏令营,当初感觉也不错,但如今觉得小米长大了不少,那些纯玩或是看护型的夏令营已经不再适合小米,所以今年选择夏令营的方针是少而精。不去夏令营的日子,小米没少挨批评,因为每天下班回家总是发现小米不是看电视就是玩电脑,或者是跟Olivia玩,后来每天晚上监督她做好第二天的活动计划,然后她按照计划该干嘛干嘛,稍微要好一些,总之,暑假要安排好孩子的活动也不容易,相比之下还是上学要省心一些。
    本周小米去了UCC的夏令营,参加的是绘画班,有2次游泳和一天的野生动物园写生,据她的反馈和完成的作品来看,感觉还算是没有浪费钱也没有浪费时间,就是路有点远,上周都是Olivia爸爸Paul帮着接和送,让我们省心不少。Paul不光接送小米去夏令营,傍晚回来后还三天两头带孩子们去游泳,这个全职爸爸是相当尽责,我们小米也跟着享受了。下周小米休息一周,再接着2周是跟Henry一起的野外夏令营,然后是一周网球夏令营,再接着又是卡通画的夏令营,说起来好像也挺忙碌的。
2013-07-19 <wbr>随便更新一下
小米今天的粉彩画:夕阳下,爸爸在守护着家人,宝宝紧跟着妈妈。
    自从上周六去农场摘樱桃回来后,小麦开始莫名其妙地发烧,好在没有烧高到要去医院看急诊的程度,烧后发了一身的小红点,幸好Henry妈有经验,说是小儿急疹,网上一查,果然是这么回事,也就没有那么担心了,小麦那几天就跟霜打的茄子似的失去了活力,不吃东西,只喝奶,然后就是一定要我抱着他,把我粘得紧紧的,非常易哭,好在今天已经基本恢复了。今天小麦正好18个月,去见了他的医生,医生也说这个小儿急疹不用太担心。小麦目前还不会好好说话,会说一长串,但不知道他究竟在说什么,医生的建议是:说话迟早都不是什么问题不需要担心,但要加强语言方面的交流和沟通,孩子的社交也很重要。看来小麦去上Daycare的日子也不远了,我也认为孩子早点过集体生活是有好处的。
    小米妈自己最近麻烦也不少,第一工作用的电脑突然硬盘坏了,所有的文件都丢了。貌似也没有什么需要我重新做的,但一堆资料没有了工作起来还是非常不方便,总之要浪费我不少时间的。第二,其实我最近2个月干了一件自己认为挺有价值有意思的事,也得到了上面的认可,但这事让兄弟部门不高兴了,因为别人本来要当成部门的一件大事来做,结果我三下五除二就搞定了,其实我只是干我认为想干、值得干的事情,其他的根本就没想那么多,但有些人似乎觉得是丢了面子或是其他我也不清楚,貌似相当地不服气,所以事后不停地来抓小辫子,想方设法来挑刺,明明是个技术活,搞得烟火味甚浓,唉。。。。。。好吧,虽然我很不乐意甚至有点烦了去应付他们,但也只能是无奈。其实我也没得到任何好处,最多是给自己一年产假归来后重新提升自己的信用度罢了。修了一年的产假,多少都是要付出点代价的。

2013-07-09 The power outage


Yesterday,in the evening,there was a power outage.I was on the computer playing when suddenly there was an alert that said UNABLE TO CONNECT TO INTERNET.So I went off the computer and walked upstairs and I noticed that no one was using electricity and power,except my dad,who was on the phone.(no surprise,because my parents are always on the phone.)I asked dad what happened,and he said there was a power outage and there's no internet,electricity,energy,or power.Then I asked my dad why his phone still works.He said because phones also have batteries.

I realized how important power is.Without power,then you won't be able to cook because we use electric stove.You also need power to turn on lights, without lights, you won't be able to see where you are going because it's so dark unless you use flash light or lantern.Then my mom won't be able to get back home early because she will be stuck in a traffic jam because traffic lights need power, then people will need to go to where traffic light are put, so they can show people where to go instead.But you know, that's very inefficient!That's why my mom got back home really late.

There are good and bad things about power outage. The good thing is we are not wasting any energy.It's kind of peaceful. Everyone is playing together, no one is sitting on the corner playing on the phone because they want to save energy for emergency. I get to chat and tell each other jokes and i gave massage to my mom.The bad thing is i'm scare the dark, and feel like a monster is going to jump out at any minute to grab you. 

This is very unusual, I guess it probably happens every few hundred years.This is my very first time in the power outage.When i went to sleep last night, there was still no power,but in the morning when i woke,the power was back, but my mom was at work.

2013-07-03 摘自小米的writer's Book


刚才在看小米从学校带回的写作本,就是在学校时写的作文,从来没有带回家过,所以前面也不知道她究竟在学校写了些什么,看了几篇觉得还挺好笑的,摘出来共享:

One day,Mr.Jone felt the day was too boring and serious. So he decided to play a joke on his wife. This was his joke: Mr. Jone balanced a bucket on the door, so when Mrs. Jone came back from work, the bucket would fall. But when the door opened,instead of Mrs.Jone, it was Matteo, his son! Matteo screamed. Then he said," Why did you dump water on me?" with that he took out a water gun and squirted Mr.Jone. They had a great water fight. Suddenly,Mrs.Jone opened the door......and slipped! Matteo and Mr.Jone laughed. After a few minutes, Mrs.Jone started laughing too! That's why Mr.Jone was laughing.  
有一天,Jone先生觉得日子有点无聊和过于严肃,所以他决定给他太太开个玩笑。 他在门上放了个水桶,这样他太太下班回家时水桶会掉下来。但是当门打开的时候,出现的并不是Jone太太,而是他的儿子Matteo,Matteo尖叫了起来,“你为什么要把水泼我身上?”然后他拿出他的水枪,他们打了很棒的水仗。突然,Jone太太开门进来了,然后滑倒了。Jone先生和Matteo大笑,几分钟后,Jone太太也大笑了起来。这就是为什么Jone先生在大笑。
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One day my mom took me to the movie theaters. We watched a cartoon movie called KungFu Panda. It made me laugh a lot. That is why that movie is famous. My favorite part was when Po the panda belly-wrestled a cheetah. My mom was laughing so hard that the popcorn she was eating almost flew out of her mouth! When we went home, my mom was still chattering about the movie! When she was still chattering, I called my friend and she said there was a second movie. My mom said I could watch it. I was looking forward to watching it so that i could see my mom laugh again!
有一天妈妈带我去电影院看电影。我们看了功夫熊猫的卡通电影。它让我大笑不已,这就是为什么这个电影那么有名吧。我最喜欢的部分是Po和豹子决斗的片段。我妈妈笑得很厉害以至于她在吃的爆米花都差点要飞出她的嘴巴了。我们回家后,我妈妈还在唠叨着这个电影。在她继续唠叨的时候,我给我朋友打了电话,她说还有第二部,我妈妈说我还可以去看第二部。我期待着去看续集,这样我又可以看我妈妈大笑了!
竟然把我形容成这个形象2013-07-03 <wbr>摘自小米的writer's <wbr>Book,挺能夸张的么,去看电影竟然是为了看我大笑?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Long time ago, when people did not exist,(not even Santa!) When farmers chased chickens for their eggs, there were two lands called Farmerland which is south and always looks for Chickenlan which is south. There was a chicken named Ruby and her favorite movie is called Space Chicken and her favorite food is scrambled pancakes with cheese and squirty tuna sand witches. One day, when Ruby was in University, she had to choose a job. Her best friend, Ashlyn said that she wanted to be a actor or a veterinarian and she can't choose. Then she decided to do both if it was possible.Ruby said she wanted to be an astronaut, but the teacher Ms.Maxwell said:" That is not possible. You'll have to cross Farmerland!" Ashlyn said to Ruby:"Don't believe her. Anything is possible!” So, they made a boat traveled to Farmerland, made a farmer costume and walked through. Then they built a spaceship and went to space! They took lots of pictures and later landed back to Chickenland. Ruby was famous and Ashlyn became an astronaut-doctor. The end!
很久以前,当人类还不存在的时候,(即便是圣诞老人),当农夫(不是人类!)追逐着鸡想要他们的蛋的时候,有两片陆地,北面的叫Farmerland,他们总是寻找位于南面的Chickenland。 有一只小鸡她的名字叫Ruby,她最喜欢的电影叫Space Chicken,她最喜欢的食物是煎饼加奶酪和吞拿鱼沙子小巫婆(小米特别强调这不是三明治2013-07-03 <wbr>摘自小米的writer's <wbr>Book)。有一天,当Ruby还在大学里的时候,她需要选择一个工作,她的好朋友Ashlyn说她想要当一个演员或者是兽医,但她不能选择究竟选哪个好,她决定都尝试一下如果有可能的话。Ruby说她想要当一个宇航员,但是老师Maxwell小姐说:“那不可能,因为否则你需要穿过Farmerland才行”。Ashlyn对Ruby说:“不要相信她,任何事情都是有可能的。”然后,她们做了一首船去了Farmerland,她们穿上农夫的衣服装扮成农夫的模样穿越了Farmerland,然后他们造了一艘宇宙飞船去了太空。 她们拍了很多照片最后回到了Chickenland。最后,Ruby出名了,Ashlyn也成了一名宇航员医生。
这篇纯碎属于天马行空
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mr.Connelly's mom yells at Mr.C's sister:"Get out of that Ostrich-horse! And, how did you even get in!" Mr.C's sister yells"My brother did it" Then Mr.C's mom slaps him in the face. Just when his mom was about to get help,his sister jumps right out of the cage and landed on Mr.C! "Take that,and that!" She shrieked, as Mr.C fell down, she slapped him again and again until Mr.C fainted.
Connelly先生的妈妈对Connelly的姐姐大喊:“赶紧给我从鸵鸟背上下来!不知道你究竟是怎么上去的!”Connelly的姐姐喊道:“是Connelly干的!”Connelly的妈妈给了Connelly一个耳光。就在Connelly妈妈打算找人帮忙的时候,Connelly的姐姐跳出了笼子并且着落到Connelly身上,“我让你再这样捣乱。。。”她尖叫着,当Connelly被打倒在地的时候,他姐姐还在继续打他耳光,直到connelly昏过去为止。2013-07-03 <wbr>摘自小米的writer's <wbr>Book 
这个太搞笑了,要知道Connelly是小米的老师,她竟然敢写这样的文章,我看Connelly给此文的批语是“Great story!”2013-07-03 <wbr>摘自小米的writer's <wbr>Book小米说这个文章还有个开头的,在另外的纸上,文章是写Connelly和妈妈姐姐去动物园玩,他捉弄她姐姐,最后被他姐姐打晕过去的事情。我说小米你真得很能编,让人怀疑你有暴力倾向呢。问小米粥怎么会写这样的故事?小米说“有的时候姐姐和弟弟在一起时就会这样,一般弟弟都比较调皮,会捉弄姐姐的。”好吧。

2013-07-02 露营


    刚刚监督小米写了篇文章,跟这次camp相关的,觉得她写得还不错,还有些细节的。计划今后每周都要让她写一篇文章来练习提高写作,多写写至少写作的速度能够提高一点吧。不过小米目前还是需要监督干预的状态,还做不到自觉地完成,暑假已经开始了,本周没有给她安排什么活动,昨天傍晚露营回来后急着找Olivia玩,晚上跟他们一起去看烟花,到10:30才回家,累得一头栽倒在床上,连牙都没有刷。今早上班去之前吩咐她做点作业,写篇文章,我下班回来看到她才开始在做第二页作业,可见一整天都是在玩,所以她目前不监督还是不行。
    说说露营的事,露营在北美是极其普遍的事,这片土地上有很多极好的原生态自然环境,露营是跟大自然亲密接触的很好方式。营地基本都是在大型的森林公园内的,这里的公园跟我们国内的公园不同,基本都是开放式的,除了露天游泳池和孩子玩的playground外,基本没有什么人工设施,营地一般提前五个月就可以开始预订,因为除了饮用水和洗手间淋浴外不提供什么设施服务,所以价格很低,2个车位的营地(适合两家人)一晚上也就是30~40刀。 价格虽然便宜,但也需要提前做好计划,否则临时想去是很难订到营地的,你也不可以随便找块空地扎营。
    对很多人来说,露营就是体验一下不同的生活方式,尝个新鲜而已。特别是对孩子来说,在野外露宿野炊是件很兴奋的事,也可以学习锻炼一下基本的生活能力。当然,露营其实蛮辛苦的,要准备一堆东西不说,搞得跟逃难似的打包装车,着实是件累人的事。好吧,干点体力活也算是健身吧。
2013-07-02 <wbr>露营
营地就是一片空地
    这次严格意思上算是我们的第一次真正露营,上回我们住了小木屋,也没有自己做饭,所以不能算。小麦算是没有错过我们的第一次露营了,话说小麦才18个月,但带出去貌似没有太大问题,他的表现挺好的,晚上还睡得挺香,估计是白天活动量比较大给累倒了。另外一家朋友他们也有个比小麦大2个月的孩子,他也表现得很好,营地里半夜也有听到小朋友的哭声,不晓得是不是给冻着了或者是做噩梦。吃得当然没有那么好,我们买了很多垃圾食品在路上消遣,小麦也跟着吃了好多薯片。
2013-07-02 <wbr>露营
小米爸在做早餐
2013-07-02 <wbr>露营
2013-07-02 <wbr>露营
给小麦喂饭
2013-07-02 <wbr>露营
    其实这次的营地不是太适合我们,因为都是走trail,带着小麦走还是挺费劲的,我打算下回安排一次沙滩边的露营,这样小麦可以整天都在沙滩上玩。另外这次的天气不好,气温不高,都没有游泳的欲望,晚上还下雨,帐篷虽然不漏雨,但是感觉非常潮湿,浑身感觉不舒服,有风湿关节炎的人肯定是不适合露营的。 营地倒是极好,非常干净,蚊子也很少见,树木也很整齐,营地里提供洗手间带淋浴,和饮用水。感觉也挺安全的,有看到鹿子出没,估计没有熊,并且营地也有工作人员定时开车巡逻的。
    其实我觉得就呆在营地里休息休息就非常好,但大家都是在早餐结束后都外出活动去了,我们一共有7家人,其中5家人中午竟然跑去小镇上吃自助餐去了,我们表示没有任何兴趣吃自助餐,一来带了太多的零食,肚子一直都吃得很饱,实在没有胃口吃自助,二来出来露营还去吃自助也太不像话了吧2013-07-02 <wbr>露营。下午继续出去转悠,傍晚回营地做晚饭吃,晚上天黑后,烧篝火大家围着篝火聊天,小朋友们在火上烤棉花糖吃,到晚上11点左右,大家各自回帐篷熄灯睡觉。营地里没有路灯,只有不远处洗手间有灯,半夜里打着手电筒去洗手间是个挑战。森林里半夜气温也挺低的,所以睡袋还是应该买温度低一点的。
    总得来说,露营还是不错的,就是感觉路远了一点,其实没有必要跑美国去的,加拿大有很多好地方可以露营,路上小米不停地抱怨为什么还没有到,怎么那么远,其实我也觉得在路上花那么多时间不值得,我们在路上花了将近7个小时,因为过边境需要排队,话说过边境时还没收了俺的一大袋橙子,我只知道奶制品、肉类是不能带入美国的,没想到这产自美国加利佛尼亚的橙子竟然也不能带,因为橙子含有种子,有没有搞错啊!那我的樱桃怎么又没有没收呢,难道是樱桃没有看到?没搞懂!总之,今后去美国还是尽量不要带东西,美国的物价比加拿大低,过去采购就好。

2013-07-02 Gorge Trial


We went on a camping trip for 3 days in Watkins Glen State Park,New York State, in the USA.I went with my dad,mom and my brother while my grandma stayed at home because she didn't get a USA Visa. We slept in a tent each night and used the BBQ to cook food. We went to lots of gorge trails.That is what I'm going to talk about.
2013-07-02 <wbr>Gorge <wbr>Trial

A gorge trail is something you might not usually see. I think this is not my first time to walk into a gorge trail, but it was my first time walking the whole way through a gorge trail with a waterfall.You see, I have a gorge trail in my neighborhood but it's so stinky that i never got to walk the whole way through.Anyways,it is also too long.
2013-07-02 <wbr>Gorge <wbr>Trial
We went on two gorge trails that both with waterfalls.On the first day I went to a gorge trail that is so long that I thought I would never finish it but at the end I actually finished! (with the help of a shuttle bus, thank you bus!) My mom and dad were so proud that i didn't need to get any help from them unlike my brother Lucian who needs to be carried because he had the energy to make it, but he kept wasting his energy by walking back, and back, and back, and back until he was at the beginning. My favorite part about that gorge trail was the bridge under the waterfall.It was so cool because i never thought that I would go under a waterfall.It looked very  pretty because it looked like tons of crystals were falling from the sky! But the camera couldn't catch the beauty of the waterfall so I had to take picture with my eyes and captured it my heart.It was so beautiful! It looked like icicles were dancing with snowflakes and the snowflakes were dancing with the crystals on Christmas day!
2013-07-02 <wbr>Gorge <wbr>Trial

On my second gorge trail,I got to play in the water!I saw two dragonflies near the water where i was playing. I like to play in the water because when i walked in the water direction that the water was heading towards me, it feels like soft, smooth,cold, refreshing and so soothing, i just can't explain how it felt like.I feels like i'm dancing through the water, just like a seal would.But at the same time,I feel like skipping on the water like a pebble.Then further in the gorge,i saw a humongous waterfall!!!It had a lot of mist at the bottom and lots of people were taking pictures of the waterfall,including us.
2013-07-02 <wbr>Gorge <wbr>Trial
I really enjoyed my camping trip.Maybe I'll try camping again!But next time maybe i'll camp somewhere closer.
