Days before my birthday....
It is two days before my thirteenth birthday, Papa took me out to the field. He had given me a scythe, or a knife. Papa let me use it to cut the vine on the grapes. I walked over and separated the leaves to get to the vine. When I cut the vine, I walked back and stood in between Mama and Papa.
What has happened to Papa??
Oh no, Papa is missing! Who took him, or worse. Was it those goat-like uncles of ours?(Tio Lous, Tio Marcus) I miss him dearly, and hope he comes back.
On the move...
What does Tio Luis want from Mama? Trying to get away was hard. We had to ride in a wagon for almost two days. Then, we had hop onto trains. As we were on the train, we met a nice lady named Carmen. When we got off the train she gave us two hens to keep.
On the same side of the river...
In Mexico, Miguel and I started out on different sides of the river. Now in America we stand on the same side of the river. That makes Miguel and I feel better.
