Belize is BEAUTIFUL

UNDER THE SEA IN BELIZE

LIFE IN BELIZE






















San Pedro AC, by Jorge Aldana


A POEM I DEDICATED TO CIARRA ON HER GRADUATION FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!

THE DAY IS HERE
(For my granddaughter, Ciarra Alexandria Thompson)
The Day is now here,
You’re moving on,
High School comes next year,
Like the coming of new dawn.
The years go by so fast,
It seems just yesterday,
We were happy you were here at last,
On that warm August day.
Many “first” have become happy memories,
In each your beautiful smile would beam,
As you captured our hearts like a queen.
Now its time to warn you of what lies ahead,
Of boys with promises, friends with ideas,
Teachers and homework, project and deadlines,
Progress and goals, all yours to achieve.
It’s the stairway you must climb,
If you want to be successful in time.
So, study and learn all that you can,
Make education a part of your plan.
You can be whatever you choose to be,
If you work hard it’s yours to achieve.
So on this your Graduation from Eighth Grade,
I wish you all the best,
The story continues, so be brave,
What follows continues to lead you to success!

THE MOM BEHIND IT ALL - ARLENE PECH PARTIDA



Arlene is a SOCCER MOM, wife and all around Wonder Woman who grew up in Corozal Town, Belize!

I first met Arley when she was one of a trio... that trio included my daughter, Carolyn, and their friend, Marleny. The three were inseparable friends throughout their school years and could be seen riding their bikes all over Corozal on Sundays.

Arley was a bubbly teenager filled with laughter and happiness so it is no wonder that she would grow up to become a member of a family of Sports lovers.

Today Arley Partida is a Referee, Coach, Safety Director, and Division Commisioner of ASYO, the " ALL Volunteer" Non-Profit Youth Soccer Organization. .

She is also the PTA president at her son, Ehren Partida's School and sits on the Board at son, Quillen's High School. 

This past year she formed the first ever Booster Club at son Aiden's school.

Hats off to Arlene and her husband, Pancho, for being so active and for bringing up three fine sons.
