Down the memory lane
I can’t believe how much time has passed since the first picture was taken. It makes me sad thinking about it, though I don’t think I would want to go back to being 14, fun as that was. I’m pretty happy with myself, and where I am right now. When that photo was taken, I was already making dolls for 8 years.
My sister’s names are Irina and Alina. Marina, Irina and Alina. I don’t know what my mom was thinking. I guess she thought it was cute that all our names sounded the same. My middle sister, Irina (pink top) is studying to be a dental hygienist on the East Coast and this is the first time I got to see her this year. She flew in as a surprise for Alina’s high school graduation ceremony, who is going to study medicine at the University of British Columbia.
Yup, we’ve changed some since the first picture was taken. The little one is now too big to sit on my parents’ lap. We all still call the “The little one”, though she is taller than both of her older sisters…and I think our parents too.
It was good to be together again with my parents, like when we were little girls.
