I’m driving around campus and I’m noticing the excitement in all the faces. They group and they’re meeting with their old friends. They look as they’re discussing their schedules. The new students are welcome and they all walk in small groups. I notice some of the new comers looks nervous with a shy smile. My nephew is part of that group. By next week all the rest of the schools would be fulfilled with laughter and ready for the school year. I can’t wait for next week when I go back to work at the school cafeteria to feed my little ones.
I use to listen to my mom’s stories of when she was a little girl, with my grandmother, and my aunt they would walk long distances to sell their silk handkerchiefs. They would spend hours sewing and they would fix dresses, too. All of my mother’s siblings didn’t have the chance to go to school. They’ve to work at an early age to earn money. I always love the idea to learn how to make dresses for my daughter, however I’m not talented. My daughter is learning how to sew, she can make my dresses.
I remember sitting under the tree with my two best friends. We love to sit under a tree we have in our backyard. This image brings back that beautiful moment. We would talk and laugh about anything silly, especially boys. Another great memory when we would make plans for the weekend. The many weekends, we love going to the discotheque and demonstrate the other girls we can dance disco. Who remembers the movie Saturday Night Fever? I would cherish those beautiful memories, especially my two best friends Lucy and Carmen. My teenage years were the best time of my life.
It has been three years since my youngest graduated from college. When I see a graduation picture it brings beautiful memories of my kids. As a parent, we spent time following our children and making sure they do their homework. We go to the schools and check their progress and grades. It’s years of waking up early and taking them to school on time and picking them up at the end of the day. Finally, it’s time for them to graduate. We plan an Open House Party to show family and friends our children made it and we made too.

This is the first time I’m participating in this writing challenge. Thanks to Bikurgurl for the photo prompt this week.
The warm weather, the beautiful gardens, and the green grass it’s all here. Yes, summer is approaching and that’s the reason is my favorite season. Every year as soon begins the warm weather I begin to enjoy walking. I was surprise when I saw this beautiful picture by Bikurgurl it looks exactly like my neighborhood. Every year I’ve a goal of walking at least an hour and lose the extra weight. However, this year it’s different. My knees are hurting and I’m walking only for35 minutes. At least the little bit I’ve been walking it makes the stress goes away.
