Moment in time Mary Mackillop

Mary Mackillop Center
One day, my school went to Mary Mackillop Center in Mission Bay were the Josephites lived.

It’s lunch time at the Mary Mackillop center, so we got our bags and sat under a tree with our class. As I’m eating my lunch I saw the sisters throwing lollies on the fresh smelling grass. The children were trying to get the most lollies in the scramble. The children loved the scrambling and competing for lollies- it was fun although I was just standing and looking at them collecting their loot.

The green grass looks like a green carpet, soft and spongy.  As I sit on the grass I can feel the blades tickling my fingers as I lean over to rest. It is supports my back like my favorite cushion.

I can feel the rough concrete as I walked by firmly on the path. It is not even some portions are smooth and most of it are rough. I can feel the grits of the gravel on my shoes. Many children did not notice this.
