S is for Stawamus Chief

The class and I hiked to the top of Stawamus Chief on our Grade Seven camping trip. It is 3km return with a 600 metre elevation change. They did it - up and down in about four hours.

I took seven.

I was sore for days.

But we did it. Every one of us.

Here is a picture proving I still had a sense of humour on the way down.

If you want to read the full story of this trip you can....mountains and molehills.

The Sun, with loving light
makes bright for me each day

These lines were the beginning of the verse we started with every day from grades one to four.

From grades five to eight we started this way:

I look into the world
In which the sun in shining

So the sun featured prominently in our years together.

Illuminating all we did.


  1. Cool! That you made the climb and the que you gave to your class each day.
    Visit me at: Life & Faith in Caneyhead
    I am Ensign B of Tremps' Troops
    with the A to Z Challenge

  2. Well done to you Mary-Anne for being able to finish that climb, what an achievement! You really are a great sport.
    I love the little sunny rhyme to start your day with as well.

    1. you can meet waldorf students from all over the world and they can all recite the morning verses - I love them.

  3. I took the detour and arrived here via that horrendous yet triumphant climb... I would have lost my sense of humour along the way and waited to be winched to safety by a helicopter.
    And as for this A-Z thing... we're on the downward journey... and I'm definitely doing it on my arse!

    1. Love the metaphor for finishing the A to Z challenge - although to me it seems you are running towards the finish and maybe even taking the stairs two at a time.
