Gustiamo, Inc.


The children took a trip to an Italian warehouse that is located in the Bronx. I did not even know that it was there! The Bronx is full of surprises and great opportunity. There is something new to learn every day about the neighborhood that you live in. If you spend your time shunning your habitat or surroundings, you never know all the good that is actually there.

When we got there, there was a very sweet group of people waiting to greet us with Italian accents. They all were spoiling the children. Which I think was good for the kids. They don’t get spoil at the center much. We made our own pasta that was suburb! And then ate some chocolate that was just scrumptious.


Monk Parakeets of Pelham Bay

Parakeet at Pleham Bay

When the children went for a walk on the track, one of the teachers stopped us to inform us of the Parakeets that live at Pelham Bay Park! They live in the flood lights facing the baseball and football field. Unfortunately, we did not hear them talk and I don’t think they talk but we did collect a few feathers for our scrap-book.

Creative Fire Hydrant

Creative Fire Hydrant

Someone placed two car tires and a piece of wood around the fire hydrant so the water would constantly spray really high. Usually, there is someone standing behind the hydrant pushing the water out.  And no one can pass by and not get wet. It sprays so high that passer-bys are certain to get wet.


Today was the annual trip to the Pelham Bay Park and this is where the children found the  big, fat, green caterpillar.

Miss Lilly, Miss Lilly! Look what Emy got!

Inside of the cup was a caterpillar.

‘Can I keep it?!’

Now the center has a pet which they named Spiky. It sits on the window seal in a juice bottle with holes poked into it,  nextSpiky to the plants.

I Lost My Tooth!

Yesterday, during Fitness, I lost my tooth!

I was doing jumping jax and all of sudden I cried out:

‘Look, Look! My tooth fell out!’

My entire class crowed around me  but before I could show anyone

I dropped my tooth.

I started to look for it and my teacher allowed the class to help me.

But no one could find it so, my teacher said we had to get back to doing fitness.

She allowed me to keep looking for it.

Soon, she told me to forget about it.

But I moaned loudly with tears in my eyes: ‘I want a lot of money for my tooth!’ (These were real tears because sometimes I do cry for fake).

When I was just about to give up, Miss Lilly picked up something really small and white and said to me:

What’s this?

And instantly I begin to smile because I knew with all my heart that that was my  lost tooth! And it was!!

I cried out with a joyful voice: I found my tooth! (Even though I didn’t really find it!) Even my teacher said that I found it! I like Miss Lilly!

After showing my class, my teacher took me to the office and put it in an envelope and sealed it up. She also gave me a quarter!

Later the class made a circle and we all took turns telling our stories about losing our teeth. I was too excited to really listen.

Miss Lilly offered to hold my tooth for me until it was time to go home but I am a big boy! So I told her no.

Unfortunately, I lost my tooth again and I am not going to get filthy rich over it anymore.

But at least I made a quarter!
