I was playing with the kids, practicing my Spanish, and they were practicing their English on me, and it was fun because I felt like I ...

Sal jumped up on one of the chairs to peer inside and shouted, “KIM THERE’S YOUR HAND!” I honestly never thought that they would still be there… I couldn’t believe it! It was so great to be able to show my sister the school and the place which she had heard about endless times! Like the taxi driver said, the school has a memory of me, and my body has ...
