School is Almost Over

Tomorrow is my last day of school. I'm a little bit sad. I'm going to miss seeing all my friends every day. And being in school. I like to learn. But this summer is going to be fun. I'm going to go spend some time with my Nono. He lives in FL. And we already planned our trip. We're going to Disney and to the beach. :)

But I get to leave for NC on Thursday. My Dad has been working there. And I'm excited to get to see him again! My abuelitas are going to stay home. Because we're only going to be gone until Tuesday. I'm excited to see my Nana too! And we might get to go see my friend Sarita. She is in the hospital. :) C

Aren't these pretty? They're peonies. When my Dad and I went shopping for our plants for the garden, I asked him for these flowers. They only came in bulbs. We bought 2 packs. And I planted them. That was in March.

I went to go check on our plants after school today. The peonies are green, with lots of leaves. They're bigger than last week. But there are still no flowers. I'm excited to see them bloom. But I know it takes a long time for them to grow. I'm just glad that we planted them! :) C

My Dad is Working

My Dad left today. He went to work on some gigs with my Nana. I already miss him. But I'm glad I got to stay with my abuelitas. It's fun that they both live with us. I think that we are going to have a lot of fun together!

We only have a week of school left. Then I'm going to fly to meet my Dad and my Nana. This is going to be a lot of fun! We're going to a race while I'm there. And my Dad said we might get to stop and visit Sarita on our way home. :) C

I wish I could make this scarf for my Nana. She really likes to wear scarves. I know she would like this one. But I don't know how to sew as good as Dana.

Here is the tutorial for Dana's scarf.

I like this one too! But I don't think I can make this one either. But isn't Disney's scarf beautiful?

This is another one of Disney's Crinkle Scarves. I think I can make this one. It doesn't have the fringe on it. But I would really like to make it for my Nana. I wish I could make her the necklace too!

I'm going to save this. And I'm going to try and make it when school is over. My Dad said we can go to the store to buy some of this fabric. Maybe I can get the stuff to make the necklace too! I really like them both! :) C

It's Almost Summer Break

School is almost over. We have 15 more days! My Dad is already on his summer break. But he will start teaching lessons at home. During the day. This week at school it is spirit week. And every day we get to dress up. It's a big deal. We usually have to wear a uniform. I go to a private school. But this week we have days like pj day and career day. I'm really excited!

But I'm also sad. School is almost over. I won't get to see all my friends until August. It's a long time. We will still get to talk on the phone. But we won't see each other every day like we do now. My Dad told me not to worry. That I could have sleepovers. But I'm still going to miss my friends.

My Dad has planned a trip to go visit my Nono. We are going to Florida for a few weeks. I'm really excited about that! I like going to visit him. We always spend a lot of time at Disney World. My Nono also has a big swimming pool. And I just like to spend time with him.

I will still be in my dance classes too. We get to perform during the summer. I won't be bored. But I will miss spending lots of time with my friends. :) C

Happy Mother's Day!

Today is Mother's Day. But I don't have a mom. Instead, I have lots of ladies who love me. Starting with my abuelitas and my Nana! I hope they all have a nice day. I've made them each a special present. And I've gotten to see everyone but my Nana today. She's visiting her mom in a different city. But I can't wait to see her! She really is like my mom. I LOVE her so much! And I know that she does a lot of things for me that she doesn't have to.

I don't think you have to be a mom today to celebrate. And you don't need to have a mom. All you need are women that love you. I never miss the love of my mom. Because my Dad loves me so much! He makes up for my mom. And my Nana is so special to me. Happy Mother's Day! :) C

A New Baby

My tio Jose and tia Gabi had a new baby. Lilianna was born on Cinco de Mayo! Isn't that neat? They're really excited! My Dad and I got to go see Liliana yesterday after school. She is so beautiful! I always wanted a little sister. But I'm excited that I get to spend time with all of my tio and tias ninitos. :) C

Feliz Cinco de Mayo

Today is Cinco de Mayo. I'm so excited! Today I get to dance. I'm a folklorico dancer. And a mariachi. Today, my tios and my Nana are going to be playing. After school I get to go dance at 2 different places. Marissa, Maribel and Lauren get to go dance too! We're going to have so much fun! I hope everyone enjoys their day too! In case you're wondering, those are folklorico dancers in the picture. :) C

My Dad and I have a garden. We've been growing lots of food! But our favorites are the jalapenos. We've got 10 plants! And we eat some almost every day. I like them in scrambled eggs for breakfast. Delicioso! My Dad told me that we're going to have to start making salsa because we have so many. Our tomato plants aren't growing as quick. But it's OK. Do you have a garden? What do you grow? :) C

Tonight I'm going to my Dad's concert with him. I'm really excited! This is 1 of his last concerts for the season. I'm sad about that. But I'm happy to go see him play. One day I want to play in the symphony with him. My Dad keeps telling me if I practice enough, I'll get there. I practice a lot. Because I want to play in the symphony too! :) C
