Hi, I am Sonia Garrett, Casa Assistant in the Sitka classroom.

 With a little poetic license, here’s a taste of:

 

My Summer

(Tune: The Twelve Days of Christmas)

 

In the first week of summer, my true love gave to me,

A house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the second week of summer, my true love gave to me,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the third week of summer, my daughter brought to play,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the forth week of summer, my true love gave to me,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the fifth week of summer, we finally got away,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the sixth week of summer, my true love gave to me,

Six sacks for weeding,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the seventh week of summer, my family found for me,

Seven lakes for swimming,

Six sacks for weeding,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

In the eighth week of summer, my family gave to me,

Eight loads of washing,

Seven lakes for swimming,

Six sacks for weeding,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the ninth week of summer, my family found for me,

Nine trails for hiking,

Eight loads of washing,

Seven lakes for swimming,

Six sacks for weeding,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

In the tenth week of summer, the moms all called with glee,

Ten months of schooling,

Nine trails for hiking,

Eight loads of washing,

Seven lakes for swimming,

Six sacks for weeding,

Five hot spring days,

Four rooms for painting,

Three neighbours’ children,

Two trucks for moving,

And a house sited in Deep Cove.

 

 Welcome back everyone!
