Chorus
I feel connected; I feel respected
With my family and with my friends,
Like a tower, I‘ve got power
With an energy that never ends.
I need community and my teachers
To watch my steps as I grow,
Take my hand, let’s go together
For there’s so much I want to know!

Verse
Moving too fast, make this day last
For very soon I’ll be grown,
Time goes by and you’ll ask why
The early years have just flown?
Jump on our bikes; let’s go for a hike
All that I want is your time,
It’s simple to see; just listen to me
And share your world with mine.

Chorus with “We”

Are you learning a new sport?  My grandson, Jakob is now playing soccer. His older brother, William is learning karate. I love to play basketball and hike.  Fall is in the air and the days are getting shorter, but there is always time to go outdoors to run through the colourful leaves and play!

Now that Autumn is here, it means that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. What are you thankful for this year? I am so thankful for YOU!

It’s Harvest Time and our gardens are full of tasty, colourful vegetables and fruits. How many different colours did you eat today? I love orange crunchy carrots! Have you seen my video, “10 Crunchy Carrots”? You can watch it on my YouTube channel HERE. Count down and crunch along!

10 crunchy carrots, all yours and mine
My gerbils ate one and now there’s just 9

9 crunchy carrots, let’s bake them in a cake
Sasquatch ate one and now there’s just 8

Charlotte & Sasquatch
8 crunchy carrots, delicious to munch
Your hamster ate one and now there’s 7 in a bunch

7 crunchy carrots, let’s make some sticks
My sister ate one and now there’s just 6

6 crunchy carrots, sweet as honey from the hive
The bees ate one and now there’s just 5

5 crunchy carrots, a scratch at the door
The imp wants one and now there’s just 4

4 crunchy carrots, a treat for you and me
But the worms got one and now there’s just 3

3 crunchy carrots, what can we do?
Your brother took one and now there’s just 2

2 crunchy carrots, a knock at the door
Dracula wants one and now there’s just 1 more

1 crunchy carrot broken in two
Gives a piece for me and a piece for you. Crunch!
