Happy Birthday Rhonda

Rhonda told us that she likes to celebrate her birthday at her friend’s camp. She likes to sleep over and have drinks like rum & coke.

Rhonda’s friend Elaine told us that Rhonda’s birthday was a little different last year due to Covid. “We celebrated at Batchewana Bay on Lake Superior. Had take out food from the restaurant on picnic tables as we couldn’t eat inside. Then a bonfire and cake and gifts. Her sister brought the cake and 9 other friends joined in. She wore her favourite butterfly dress but then had to cover it up as it was so cold and windy that day. So I took a couple of photos of her on her own next day.” 

What a beautiful dress that you are wearing!

Remembering Summer!

Summer of 2021 by Carolyn Henry

I had a wonderful summer because I had two trips to Stratford to see plays. They were called A Midsummer Night’s Dream and R&J. They were very good plays to see. I am also visiting with my mom every two weeks and having FaceTime with my mom.

Some of my favorite memories of summer include the first year we had a day camp offsite of 2880 Bayview. We went places like Ontario Place where we went for a walk around the grounds and we went to the zoo.

In 2012 My sister and I went to the Paralympics in London, England. We went mostly to track and field events. They were neat to watch. We also watched the marathon event from in front of Buckingham Palace. The blind runners were impressive to watch.

My family and I went to the cottage for the last week in August. We had a lot of people visit and that made my dad very happy.

Happy Birthday, Samantha!

You are like a breath of Spring all year!!

With love from your Bliss i-Band Buddies

From Samantha:

I remember a birthday from a long time ago. When I was 10 years old, I went to Bala, Ontario for Bliss camp. They had a cake for my birthday, everyone sang Happy Birthday and helped me to blow out all of my candles on the cake … the power went off all over Ontario. In some places for days.

In the last few years, I really like my birthday because my sister, Jayme, is home to celebrate with me. At our house, the person whose birthday it is gets to choose what we have to eat at dinner. I always choose Mom’s homemade macaroni and cheese.

Carolyn: Mmm, I love macaroni and cheese, your mom’s must be very special!

Flowers for your special day!

We loved having you at our Bliss Learning Centre in Bala.

You were our youngest guest!

That was special for us!

Love and Happy Birthday!
