This was an activity Vedic did for his first day of the 2nd grade. This activity was assigned by the school teacher to all the kids in which they have to cut and decorate the man and write few lines about them self.

“I like to play with Legos most. Mostly all play time I play with the legos. After one week I do Bee Star. Every day for study I do facterters and fact famileys. One week I went to my freands house. my mom works at Macys and my dad works at collgc.”

While typing I realized that he wrote my dad work at collgc. I kept it as it is including his spelling mistake.

Vedic wrote this Watermelon Day Story in the school. Apparently there is a watermelon day that at least I was not aware of. 

 

Nicely separated beginning, middle & end section.

My Grandparents

I have three grandparents, my “dada ji, dadi ji and nani ji”. My grandparents live in India. Sometime I go to India and stay with them.

My dada ji is a homeopathic doctor. Whenever I get sick he gives me sweet medicine. I love my dada ji because my dada ji take me out for a walk and always play with me. And whenever we go for a walk my dada ji tells me stories.

My grand ma takes me to temple. She even played with me and made food for me.

My nani ji sing “Bhajans” everyday. She play with me and take me to the satsang.

I love my grandparent so much. We should respect our grandparent they always take care of us. Everyday we learn new things with them. They give us their blessing.

Looks like they were upgrading their website and that’s why it was down and not due to technical difficulties with their servers. I really liked the features and reviews over internet and I would continue recommending PowerDNN & 3Essentials to my client and will leave up to them to chose one.
UPDATE: 12:00 PM: Response from Tony V., who is Chief Technology Officer (PowerDNN) 
We actually knew about that issue with our website.  The reason it was down was we were pushing a new version of our website live.  Normally we do this late at night, but because of the long weekend, we figured that nobody else would notice.  Obviously we were wrong.  :D
UPDATE: As of 9:00AM the PowerDNN website is running fine. Overview page now look like below screen shot.
