I went to the Pilates class at Campus Rec all by myself. I run errand on Campus . I deliver envelope to Lommasson Center. I call mom:
This is Mathalia”
”Where are you?”
”I am at Grizzly Bear.”
Wait for me then.
We can take Bus#1 together.
I wait at Grizzly Bear for Mom.
I take photos. It was fun. Mom comes.
We walk to Bus Stop. I walk slowly. We missed Bus #1. Then Bus # 12 came. I asked Bus driver:
Well, I did not talk to him. I showed my destination card.
”Yes, Bus #12 to the Carousel.”
We walk to Carousel and take funny pictures with the mirror and pictures of the horses. I go to the bathroom.
Bathroom is all done. Oh no! Where is Mom. Mom is not here.
I look around. I am confused. Where is Mom.
A stranger said.
”Hi Mathalia! I am Melissa. I am happy to meet you!”
Oh okay. I meet news friends at Carousel. I said ”Hi” to Oliver and to Maysa. I think I have seen Melissa and Oliver before somewhere . . . maybe somewhere on campus. Maybe Melissa helped me on one of my errands. Maybe. Who knows . . .
But where is Mom?
This is a problem. Mom is not here!!
Melissa was helping me think about it . What shall I do?
Oh! I have my phone I call Mom! What a good idea. Thank you Melissa. I find my phone.
“Who is this?”
“This is Mathalia”
”Hi Mathalia. Where are you?”
”What do you want?”
” I want Where is Mom”.
” I am by the river picking up pretty leaves.”
And I told Melissa: Mom is by the river picking up leaves. And we found her! And we picked up more leaves and took more photos. It was fun hanging out with new friends.
Then we rode the Carousel together. I shared a taken with Maysa. I paid the money. I like to go with friends. I wear the belt. I take picture of belt. I rode outside horse. I reached for the rings. I missed but it was okay. It was fun!
After ride little girl, Maysa, wanted Doragon Hollow park and slides. It was hanging out with Oliver and Maysa. I push Oliver on the swing it was fun! Then Mom said `Bye, I have to run errand to the Library!’
Oh no! I am not ready to leave. I want to play some more with new friends. Melissa said, `I will give you a ride home, Mathalia.’
`Oh, Thank you!’
And she did! Melissa did not know where we live. It was funny! She drove by our street. She drove right by my house! I had to tell her my address and point out my house. It was funny.
