We went over to my cousin E for a visit and have our girls play one afternoon. It was a beautiful day. The girls had a great day at playtime, as usual. E told me that a package from her sister J, who is presently in Hong Kong, arrived and there are gifts for me and my daughter. I was very surprised to receive these gifts from my cousin in Hong Kong. Skin care for me and a pretty dress for K. There two bars of chocolates, too.
Thank you, E. Also, thank you, J for the gifts. You’re so sweet.
Darling daughter’s school is having a week-long campaign called Red Ribbon Week. It is a yearly nationwide campaign against illegal drugs, drug abuse, bullying, and violence. This is observed every month of October in the United States. This is to raise awareness to prevent these horrible deeds and habits. This teaches young individuals the importance of keeping their lives drug-free.
To support the engagement of the students in this campaign, they come up with Red Ribbon themes for this week at K’s school.
Monday – Wear Red as everyone gets RED-y for Red Ribbon Week, and get a red ribbon
Tuesday – Wear camo or camouflage, Fight Against Drugs and Bullies
Wednesday – Wear sunglasses, Our Future is too Bright for Drugs
Thursday – Wear red, white and blue, United We Stand against Drugs and Bullies
Friday – Dress like a super hero outfit or wear a cape, Power to be Drug-Free
The fight against illegal drugs, bullies, and violence is not only happening for a week. It should be for life.

It was a beautiful day. The temperature was so perfect that we were able to stay the whole time. So here’s the one of the much awaited event of the year in Wylie – the National Night Out (NNO) 2016. Since we discovered this special event two years ago, my darling and I together with my cousins join the occasion. This is also an event of appreciation to the community service workers who help us keep our community safe in peace and order. Also, this is an opportunity to meet the your neighbors.

So at the NNO there were exhibits of firetrucks and air medics, distribution of safety guidelines courtesy of the city police department, K-9 training show, barrel ride, bounce houses, obstacle course, free food and games, and giveaways of complimentary items from sponsors and vendors. And, of course, fireworks.
We had so much fun. This is an annual celebration every first Tuesday of October.
