I spend a lot of time with my family every single week night and every Saturday Is spent with my whole family at my Grandparents house. We go there for dinner and just have a great time with all my cousins and aunts and uncles. 2) We usually eat food, talk, watch TV and things like that, sometimes doing the simplest things are the most entertaining. I could say that I’m a lot closer with my family than a lot of other kids are my age. 3) Well my parents both work hard to put a roof over my head, three meals on the table, and for the clothes on my back.
They also do a lot of other things to they give me money when I ask, drive me places when I need to go out and always push me to do my best and to be the best person I can be. 4) Over the course of my life I would have to say that the best memories that I have of my family would have to be, vacationing to different islands. Spending time on the each swimming and doing various actives really makes you connect with your family. Old have to say that those are probably the funniest days that I spend with my family. ) Things that have come from my family to be a better person would defiantly have to e all the life lessons they give me always pushing me to make the right decisions. They taught me that’s It’s a tough life and I can’t get everything I want and I have to work hard to get things. My family is also very close to God and religion is our top priority and that as soon as I put God first everything else will follow meaning God makes everything better. 6) I show appreciation to my family by helping do my part around the house and helping to cook meals.
I respect and love my family and always try to do my best to make me proud of me. 7) Things that I rely on from my mom loud be her emotional support when I’m In a bundle either with friends or boys I can always count on a smart and honest pollen and I know that she has my best interest in mind. What can I say my dad is one of my best friends he taught me everything from how to fish to how to properly throw a baseball, my dad is my greatest fan I rely on him to keep me inline and to always teach me how to better myself either sports wise or as a human being. )There really isn’t anything I can do to make my family closer we are already so close. 9) The thing that I can think of cost Is to have more patience because everyone In my family Is really hyper and we don’t have patience when things we ask for aren’t done.
