S: My Summer 2010! By: Corien Dijsselbloem
BC: Life is AWESOME!
FC: My Summer 2010!
1: Summer is the kind of word everybody gets excited to hear. Thats what happened to me. I got really excited to hear the beautiful symphony of heaven. But once I heard the news we were leaving Sri Lanka, everything changed because I realized I was leaving my friends, my teachers and all the pets I had known for three years.
2: This was the last day of school when my teacher, Mrs. Skelly gave me a goodbye speech. This part was really sad because she was crying so she made me almost cry. | In this picture you can see the head of school, Mrs. Areta Williams, giving me the 5.5 average award (a high achievement award). | These were my really good friends. Theshika is Malaysian(she is on the right), Thea is Norwegian(she is the second one on the right) and Fruzsina is from Hungary(the second one on the left)
3: What usually would happen in the holidays was that my family and I would go to the beach. Going to the beach was one of the most fun things you could do there. This is Mr.Sandman, the summer snowman. | In this picture you can see my brother, one of my sisters, my moms friend, me and my dad jumping at the beach. we had lots of fun jumping. The bad thing was that the next day, our legs hurt really bad from jumping. | This is a napkin person they taught me how to make at the beach. There is a spoon on the top because is you want the napkin to be a girl, you put a spoon but is you want it to be a boy, you put a fork on it's head.
4: We also went to the Tooth Temple in Kandy ( a city in Sri Lanka). That city is really well known because a legend says that the Buddhas tooth is in the Tooth Temple. (Buddha is their god) | This is Maria Alejandra. (My parent's godchild) We went to her baptism and then went to her house where I spent almost the whole afternoon taking care of her. I had a lot of fun. | This is my cat Poky. Poky is the cutest cat in the world. Unfortunately, we had to leave him in Sri Lanka because the airlines had told us he was allowed to come with us but about a week before leaving they told us he couldn't. It was terrible.
5: This is Kitty, the second cutest cat in the world. Even though we only had Kitty in our family for about three months, we really became really close friends so it was really hard to say goodbye. | Poky and Kitty used to have the best time of their lives playing. When I first saw them play, I thought they were gonna kill themselves but after watching them fight everyday, I understood that they were playing and having fun. | Since my sister graduated this Summer, we went to her graduation and whenever there would be an important event is School, Kandyan Dancers would go to School and perform a dance they had choreographed.
6: Before we packed our stuff in boxes, we used almost all the fun stuff like Karaoke. My family and I had a really fun time singing songs we like, for example: The Beatles and the Eagles. | We went to the States so we visited our Uncles in California. Then we wanted to visit our cousins in Arizona so we went to Arizona through Nevada. We got on a boat trip in the Colorado river. (I don't have a picture of this summer so I put a picture at the same place but from winter holiday.) | This is another one of my sisters. Being with her is really valuable because I almost never see her since she lives in Brazil and has to work a lot.
7: When my family and I arrived in Honduras, we waited 2 weeks and then went to Tela-Mar at the hotel called "La Ensenada". I really had a great time except for the fact that I got stung by a jelly fish on my arm. That really stung! | While my mom was looking for a house to stay in, we stayed at a hotel called "Plaza San Martin". I really liked the hotel but the bad thing was that some days, we had to stay in the hotel for the whole day so it got pretty boring after a while. I'm happy we have a house now. | Watching TV at the hotel was fun because I really enjoyed watching shows like Style her Famous, Project Runway and I also saw the Teen Choice Awards but it was being translated live so it was really distracting to see the mouths and the sounds not matching and the voices were really annoying.
8: A couple of weeks after being in in Honduras, I asked my neighbors to send a picture of my cats. They only sent me a picture of Kitty since Poky was at the Vet. I really miss them:( | The first mall I visited in Honduras was Multi Plaza. I really liked this mall because if you compare it to the one in El Salvador you would think it's really dirty and stuff. I really liked this mall. | The last day of holidays was terrible because I had the terrible feeling about starting school. After all, it wasn't that bad. I actually had a good time. The bad thing is, I have to wait another year for the beautiful word to be said again:(
