Lucy’s summer in Dartmouth

August 16th, 2019

Hello, My name is Lucy Anne Okheena.

I’ve been in Dartmouth for over 2 weeks now and I can honestly say I am having a good time, even though there has been a few bumps along the way. I’ve experienced a lot of new things like taking public transit. I’ve never done that before. I’ve only ever taken a school bus which I guess is basically the same? I’ve also taken a ferry for the first time which was very cool and a lot quicker than the Bus to Halifax.

My host mother’s name is Leticia. She has 6 cats and they are all very cute although I’m not used to that many all at once. My favorite cat is named Peta. She is very cuddly and jumps a lot, she’ll literally jump from the countertop to the table in the kitchen… Her daughter’s name is Kayla who is travelling at the moment and one son named Brecken.

I work at a Boys and Girls club and I honestly didn’t know if I would actually like it or not because I’ve never worked with a lot of kids before and I didn’t know how my co-workers were going to be. But once I actually started I LOVED IT. The kids are just so adorable and beany. They are just little beans. My coworkers are very nice and they’re very funny. I don’t think I’m ever not smiling or bored at work unless one of the children are misbehaving. But yeah, I’m having the best time.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog
