New Day, New Month, New Year

I’ve been sitting here wondering where the time has gone. As years have passed, I’ve come to realize my Grandpa was right all along – he would tell me time passes more swiftly as you get older. When I was younger, it was hard for me to believe. I remember as a child how most…

Help them anyway

Through out most of my life, people would view me as the happy go lucky girl. Looking back through time, I can see all the reasons why. In my earlier years I would be hyperactive, lighthearted and full of spirit. I would even do the most silliest things to have everyone laugh and smile. If…

The red paint was the most difficult to remove. My whole face was stained red! I’m actually surprised I didn’t…

Movie Night with Liz: My best friend Anne Frank

How many of you watched this movie? Watching this film broke my heart all over again and left me in tears towards the end. It was really devastating to see what these girls and others went through during this time. In my opinion, it is really difficult to review a film that is based on…

The Adventure Challenge: Small Town Kids

The quaint city of Sunol is small and if you drive too fast, you’ll miss what it has to offer. Come to think of it… we most likely would have never discovered this place if it wasn’t for our GPS. One day on the way to Manteca, there was heavy traffic on the 680, so…
