This photo captures how I feel today.
Once again we are in the season of graduations…the best time of the year to hear encouraging speeches from educators and students alike.
Yesterday, I was walking from the Hispanos Unidos Garden with the Literacy Club when I ran across a beautiful family. I usually would see them in the neighborhood and we would exchange hi’s.
They looked stunning walking towards us. I asked the mom who looks like she could be the oldest sister (she’s the one in the pink) if I could take a photo of them.
My students were on the side of me chanting CONGRATULATIONS!! Over and over.
After the picture, one of the little girls who had chalk in her hand, decided to write on the building behind them. Why did she do that? The Literacy club suddenly got enraged. Their chants became rebukes and when I tried to take up for her, telling them it could easily come off with water, they turned to me and shouted at me:
RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE’S PROPERTY!! ISN’T THAT WHAT YOU TELL US?
So, in the end I agreed with them and so did the mother who told the little girl, she will have to clean it.
This pass Saturday, I went to the Museum of Natural History with two little children from my church, Azeria and Jeremiah.
I received museum vouchers when I attended the Young People’s Unity day at my church and planed to go to the museum alone; however, changed my mind and decided to babysit for fun…yeah, I love children that much!
I’m glad I did because we ended up hanging out with Therese and Peter. We met at the museum and had so much fun together that we plan to have another play-date this weekend.
While I enjoyed the Butterfly Garden, the Journey to the Stars and the other exhibitions I thought the Flight of the Butterflies was the best one! It’s a short documentary on the monarch butterflies. It speaks about their journey from the United States to Mexico every fall. Before I watch this documentary I thought the butterflies died at the end of the summer. I didn’t know they actually migrated across seas to a place in Mexico!
At the end of the documentary, two things came to me: God is simply AWESOME and I its time to travel to Mexico!
