I know that everyone has been waiting with baited breath to see what I, the lovely Mona, would write. My life is so busy studying that I haven’t found time to write anything. But I have a few minutes so here goes.
Michael made it safe and sound to Berkeley. He’s staying with his friend John in Walnut Creek. Knowing them, they’re having a wonderful time.
Besides studying and going to school, I went to the local drug store and found nine new books to take with me on my weekly trip to the Hogar de Niñas de Capital. Many of you know of the Hogar by Tía Sue’s blog and pictures below. I work with the younger girls on reading, writing and arithmetic. Not taught to the tune of a hickory stick. The books are “La Bella y la Bestia,” “La Sirenita,” “Alicia en el país de las Maravillas,” “Pinocho,” “Toy Story,” “Blanca Nieves y los siete enanos.” La Cenicienta,” “La Bella Durmiente,” y “La aventura pirata de Dora.” I don’t know who Dora is, but from what I can tell, she’s an explorer created by Nickelodeon. The others are Disney classics, fairy tales of old except for Toy Story.
It’s summertime and they read to me. Usually, after a story we play cards. Cards are good for Rosa Mari because she needs help with numbers. She’s fun to play with even though she cheats. It’s a more relaxing time with them since there’s not pressure to do homework.
I don’t know when I’ll write next. I have tests coming up in a week. Got to get back to studying.
