Victor is his little sisters’ role model and the one held responsible since his other sisters are still back in Mexico. He is very joyful for his sisters knowing that they are attending school. In school he knows that they will at least eat and have air condition. While in the other hand, there are days when migrant workers don’t even eat, much less have air conditioning. For him, he realized his parents were struggle and decided that he want to help them out as well which is why he goes to the fields to earn roughly around sixty dollars a day.
My aunt was one of the people that put on the dance so I got in for free along with most of my family because we are all related. After you pay you can go to the food bar and they have sweets but also had other kinds of food. My dad got there probably an hour after the dance started, he had a black button-up shirt, jeans, and black boots on. When they would play country music that’s when we would get out there and dance together, him being so much taller than me was hard but we figured out a way to do it, so I would just stand on his feet. My heels kept hurting my feet so I took them off and ran around with no shoes on.
When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day. “I had the best day ever. We got to do a lot of cool things and I met a lot of new people!” I said to them. My mom said, “ I told you, you would have a fun first day of fifth grade. I’m glad that you had
Jed's father had actually gone back into the fallen mine to get miles. This cleared all the hostility between the two family and the two boys could now be friends without problems. Jed went to the act school all summer and was doing wood craft to sell at the craft store. Tommy ended up going to the art school too but it was for playing the piano. The two families now have get together with each other and always get along.
There was a time I volunteered at an organization as a youth soccer coach and a roller hockey coach knowing I had never played before, I must say it was the most fun learning how to lead experience. I later led a group of cheerleaders for my son’s football team and I especially enjoyed volunteering at local food pantries, at a thrift store and for many youth groups through my home church, my favorite was, and still is,
Our Thanksgiving Day On the fourth Thursday of November, Me and my family celebrate Thanksgiving at my aunt’s house because it is just a day to relax and thank my family for whatever they have done for me without being selfish or greedy. We all help today with the preparations. First we get together, then we try to entertain ourselves in different ways, and then we have our feast. We do a lot of fun things, Me and my cousin go buy muffin mix, and then we make muffins. I love going to my cousin’s house in Thanksgiving.
I now appreciate the amazing community I come from; there is always something going on, the people in Fargo are incredibly kind, and everyone greatly supports each other. As a child and into my early teen years I often complained of being bored. I claimed that the best thing to do in Fargo was go to the mall where I would walk around window shopping because I didn’t actually have the money to buy anything. I think this thought changed when I was able to drive myself places and found the hidden gems of this unique city. I now spend friday nights going to poetry slams or eating at one of the many locally owned restaurants with my friends.
I remember going home that day and telling my mom all about my first day at my new school. I think, for the first time since my Dad had been laid off I felt a peace. I felt the fear that I’d felt over this drastic change in my life dissipate and vanish as I realized that we were going to be okay, that I was going to enjoy living in Dewitt. Though I would miss Texas and all the things I’d left behind, I knew that in my new home, I would be happy and I’ve been happy living in Dewitt ever
I was excited to spend my vacation hanging out with my sister, playing in the snow, and exploring this new place. My time in Whidbey Island was so much fun and memorable it’s the place that made me fall in love with the state of Washington and it’s also the place where I first watched Gone with the Wind, a movie that changed my perception of classic films. During my first week there I woke up to snow flurries it was truly beautiful. Due to the snow my sister decided we would stay in, watch movies, and bake cookies; I was so excited. We made our cookies which made the house smell wonderful.
I remember my very first job like it was yesterday. My first reaction I can remember was to giggle and laugh because I would be working with my friends when I got hired at McDonald’s that summer and it made me really happy. I remember during orientation that Barbara- my general manager, asked me if I wanted something to drink before I started training. I said no because I was so nervous that day I felt like I would pee my pants if I took the drink. I was excited to be working that summer because I would finally have my own money and could save for school with no help from my parents.
One day her parents started to pack up all of the clothes, carebears, and take them down to Bailey’s grandparents. Donna and David Snavely were Lisa’s parents, they only lived one field away. This was very helpful when Lisa and Kris went to work. Bailey’s relationship with her mom’s side of the family is very close. Staying the night with her grandparents would put a big, goofy smile on her face.
John was an only child, his mother was a stay at home mom and his dad a manager at a Crane Plumbing Branch. He recalls his parent having a happy and healthy relationship. Two memories he has of his childhood home are of the driveway and a young girl he used to play with. As a young boy he was an average student at the _ public school. His mother would make him wear hats, but John always disliked them, so as soon as he was out of his mother’s view the hat was no longer on his head.
Many of the hockey games I have been to have been memorable, but a couple of other experiences also stand out. My dad had bought tickets for us to go to the game on the night of my 16th birthday. Later that day he was offered tickets from a company that does contracting work for him. They were seats on the glass. Just sitting in the first row alone was exhilarating; however, the Blues had just signed the legendary goalie Martin Brodeur who was starting his first game for the team that night.
The first job I ever had been at a grocery store called Ray’s Food Place. I started working there when I turned 16 as a part time courtesy clerk. I needed the job so I could raise money to buy my cheerleading uniform.I got the job pretty easily because my dad was best friends with the manager, I didn’t even have to fill out an application. I was excited because I was going to be working with my cousin, Although after getting the job it kinda sucked. The first few weeks working at the store were pretty good.
I spent the afternoon in casing at the house (3621 Madison) with the contractor and the gardener, tending to the final tasks of getting the house ready to sell. As I was driving back home, I looked at the clock and turned around - I did not want to Red Destiny 2011 p021 miss the opportunity of seeing my grandsons (I knew Phaedra was away)l As I pulled up to Marie’s house (we have reverted to past names - her choice), Max (now eight) who was playing outside with friends, got so excited seeing me. I just love how happy they always are to see me - a result, I am sure, of how much joy I feel when I see them - a mutually reinforcing system! It turns out Jared and Marie were having a very rough time and she was basically praying for help when I walked in. Jared was grounded “from everything” until his grades were raised (!!)
