Hanging Out with my Buddies at the Snow!

(Yesterday…)

Ana, Gwyn, Ambar, and I hang out every Friday after school…

This time, it was sooooo FUN!

We went sledding at our place’s library…yeah, you may think it’s weird to sled at the library. But, there’s this big “square hole” by the library that was filled with hills of snow, so Ana thought that it might be fun sledding in there (I think we’re the only ones that sledded there :)).

So, everyone agreed and went. At first, I thought it was a CRAZY idea to sled at the library, but it was sooo mmmuuuuccchhhh FUUUNNN!!!

Ana went to get sleds in her house…

Ana was the first one to try sledding on the highest snow hill, and she had a good landing! So, I tried sledding but boy, oh, boy…I failed! I landed at the side of the snow hill and bumped myself on the stone wall! Ugh! Thank God, there was no damage and it didn’t hurt, but I had lots of snow on my body! I was freezing cold! So, I stopped for a while as I watched Gwyn go down the snow hill with a perfect landing.

Next comes Ambar, she fell too! But not on the walls :)!

So, was I having an unlucky day or what?

When I finally had the guts to start sledding again, I had a pretty good landing!

Then, we tried sledding in the other snow hill that was  narrow and high. I had a perfect landing!

We had so much fun, and we had lots of frost bites but anyways, my FRIENDS are AWESOME!

The Crossing Guard Near Our School

The crossing guard near our school…

I call him Mr. G, he is a pretty old man, but he is happy, strong, and ongoing.

Every time me and my sisters with my mom, walk home from school, we walk across the street where Mr. G is in-charge with. He always give us Tootsie Rolls, Dubble Bubble, and Jolly Ranchers.

Sometimes, when he doesn’t have candy for us, he says, “Sorry, li’l kids! Forgot to bring one for ya’ll”…

I enjoyed walking home from school because of the candies he would always give us.

When winter came, we no longer walk home from school…My Dad drives us to our house. So, I don’t always see him now.

But one day, my sister told me that Mr. G got sick, and their school gave cards for him. I felt really bad!

Still, snow pours, my Dad sill drives us to go home…

One day, I was asking my sister what happened with Mr. G, she had a frown in her face and said, “He passed away.”

I thought that she was joking because she always jokes around but yes, what she said was true.

I felt so sad….

Mr. G, THANK YOU!
