My friends and I spend a lot of time together. I have known most of my friends for a long time so we are very close. They are very supportive of me and always know how to make me smile. Whenever I am with them I have a really good time and they are very fun to be around. We do a lot of fun things together, and this past April vacation two of my friends and I went to Florida for a week. We also spent sometime in New York before we flew to Florida. This was the first time that we had traveled somewhere far together and I had a great time and I hope that we can go travel together again soon. We also spend a lot of time on weekends and in the summer. Wherever we go, I know that we will have a good time and make many good memories that will last forever. I am very glad that I have my friends because they always make me happy, and I don’t know what I would do without them.
I come from a very big family. Although I only have three siblings, I have over 45 cousins. The majority of my cousins come from my dad’s side of the family, and only three of them come from my mom’s. My dad grew up in Bay Shore, New York with a very large family. In his family, he was one of fourteen children, ten boys and four girls. All of my cousins from my dad’s side live in New York so my family and I spend a lot of time there so we can visit all of the cousins and my grandparents. On my mom’s side, we have three cousins, and one of them lives in Wisconsin where my mom grew up. The other two live in North Carolina with my aunt and uncle. I love to spend time with them too, but we do not get to see each other as often because we live far away. I also have two siblings, Molly and Chris. My brother, Chris, is in his Junior year of highschool and my sister, Molly, is in 6th grade. My family and I are very close and we spend a lot of time together.
