My friends mean a lot to me because they will alway take me through tough times by even making me smile or simply giving me a hug. My friends are always there for me so it is fun to do something cool whenever we are together.
My friends and I have a lot of ‘traditions’ that we do whenever we see each other.
With my friend Melynn, we get a bunch of ice cube molds and put soda in them. We take them out of the freezer as soon as they get to slushie perfection!
With my friend Olivia, we always get marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate to make s’mores. While we are in the tough process of making the perfect golden brown marshmallows, we watch funny TV shows on Netflix.
With my friend Kennedy, we make brownies from the mix but I can assure you they’re DELICIOUS! While we are waiting for the brownies to bake we watch movies.

I am From…

I am from the trampoline and pool in my backyard,

from bright colored canvases and flocks of flowers.

I am from the spacious living room,

and the smell of fresh baked goodies.

I am from the dandelions that I wish upon in the spring.

From the big oak tree whose long limbs cascade through the sky,

protecting our home.

I’m from ‘Find the Pickle’ and beach vacations.

From my parents and brothers.

I’m from fancy birthday dinners and The Nutcracker,

and from Paper Bear presents.

I’m from “Don’t do that!” And “Sorry!”.

I’m from the heart of Texas and European roots,

from Shepard’s Pie and mugs of savory soup.

From an array of memories,

hanging on my wall.

I am from a loving family that will be there forever.
