Living in the North!
This winter daddy, my sister and I went to live in the North. We lived in Rankin Inlet in Nunavut for five and a half months. It was a big adventure.
Living in the North was fun and cold. Me and my sister saw lots of snowbirds and siksiks, arctic hare, geese and cranes. You rarely see lemmings, but lots of siksiks. Siksiks were my favourite because they are super cute. They are like gophers that live in the arctic. They make a noise that sounds like siksik. That’s where they get their name.
Me and my sister went to a new school called Leo Ussak School. Let me tell you a little bit about it. There were kind teachers, a fun playground and lots of classrooms. There was a class called Culture where you learn to sew and sing. I sewed a pair of mittens all by myself.
My favourite things we did in the North were playing in the snow, walking to school across a frozen lake, making new friends, seeing the beautiful green and pink northern lights, having a picnic in real igloos and going on the quad to see the stones from the ancient Inuit village.
I had so much fun there, I wish I could go there to visit again. But I am so happy to be back home with my friends at St Mary’s!
