It’s a good question – how do Chinese-American children like to spend summers in Silicon Valley?

What I Learned in 8 Summers in Silicon Valley

I know some answers, too. I have spent 8 summers here. And I know what I like to do … and what I don’t like to do.

Playing Hide & Go Seek w/ Daddy

Mommies and Daddies are Different

A couple of years ago, Mommy arranged things … sorta kinda … at the last minute usually … and it was pretty hectic and last-minute kind of stuff. Mommy always does her best and I really appreciate her.

Last year, Daddy arranged things in advance and we did a LOT of stuff. A lot of camps – robots, national parks, pizza making … Daddy always does his best. I really appreciate him, too.

Good food and the Beach

We also took time to go to the beach. Daddy and I found a super great ice cream with a 100 100 flavors. Daddy’s good at finding delicious places.

And I also took my first trip without Mommy and Daddy. I went with my big brother, George to visit my daddy’s family in the Midwest. Indiana. Ohio River. Farms. Swimming, swimming and swimming … and swimming.

Knowing What I Like to Do in Silicon Valley

I know what I like to do now. I like to go to VBS at different churches. And I want to go back to see my daddy’s family and go swimming in the Ohio River again.

I haven’t had my brain washed … I think. What do I know? I do love my school. And we study the Bible there as part of all the other stuff that we have to learn. And I love Bible stories, too. Going to VBSes  is fun for me.

  • Learning songs
  • hearing familiar stories told in different ways
  • snacks
  • crafts
  • friends.

Yeah, that’s fun!

Redneck Fun in the MidWest

And I want to go back to see Daddy’s hillbilly family again in Indiana … and go swimming and … fun, fun, fun … and go to the Creation Museum and see Noah’s Ark! How fun can that be!?

In fact, that’s the plan … go to a lot of VBS’s and go back to Indiana, this time with mommy and daddy!
