There are 6 people in my family. I have two brothers and one sister. I am the second oldest of my brothers and sister. My Dad goes to work everyday from 8 am to 8 pm. His job is to communicate with Vietnamese people. My mom doesn’t work outside the home. She stays home and takes care of the house. She also raises the kids and cooks everyday. My oldest brother is 23 years old. He doesn’t work or go to school. He just stays home and only does the things he wants to do. He also spends a lot of money that dad earns. My younger brother is just the opposite. He is 18 years old. Everyday he goes to school and sometimes he goes to work. He also helps my parents when he has free time. He had diploma from high school and now he is enrolled in the University. My parents are proud of him very much. Finally is my sister is 11 years old and a cute girl. She is in the fifth grade. I think she is a very smart girl. I love her and my parents very much.
My family took these pictures on January 6, 1992
It was at 2.00 o’clock in evening on January six 2000. I came to the U.S. When I got off the airplane I entered to the airport and looked around, Oh! So big and a very luxurious airport. I had never seen that before and all the words were in English, no more Vietnamese. And also the people were strangers. It made me a little scared because I didn’t speak English well. After one hour waiting for the customs officer to process my paper. I met my husband and my parents–in-law and also my two uncles; they welcomed me to the U.S. I felt happy but a little tired, because I didn’t sleep very well on the plane.
After that, my husband drove me home. On the way home, I saw the big! big! street with a lot of cars. It did not look like in Vietnam with all motorbikes and motorcycles. They drive there with no lanes. Also the trees had no leaves “ What happened “ that I thought. So I asked my husband. He said “ Because in the winter time the weather is cold, and snow makes all the leaves fall off. “ Oh I see “ I said.
|This picture I took on February 8, 2001, that was my fist time to see snow.||I took this picture on January 10, 2001, because I was surprised too see the tree with no leaves on the winter time.|
