The following story was written by Kendal Simmons. She lived in Calgary from the age of two to 20 years old. Now she and her husband and two children live in Langford near Victoria, BC. Kendall is 22 years old and has two little girls. Lilly is one year old and Sara turned 3 years old on December 9, 2004. Her husband is 24 years old. His mom helps babysit and helps to keep their house clean and tidied for them.
There's a little place called Atlantis where there are big hills with green moss on them. There are trees, some small, while some are taller than 20 feet in the sky. The clouds are blue and puffy. Sometimes you can see different animals. The sun was so bright and warm; no rain clouds are in sight. There are hundreds of flowers that smell like candy and have all the colors of a rainbow. There are bushes with assorted berries that you can eat and apples and bananas on the trees. The little monkeys are jumping from branches in the trees. In this little place there is always something new to see everyday in Atlantis. There are things you will not believe unless you see it with your own eyes. Some say it's a magical place where anything is possible if you believe. Some have said that there are fairies that live near the water banks where there are creeks and where the mushrooms grow and where little children leave the fairies cakes and sweets. The sugar from the sweets is how they get the pixie dust. Some fairies can let you fly in the sky; some can make you as small as a mouse, or fast like a flash of light. They love to play with children. Most fairies like to do tricks on you too.
