I went to visit my sister in Virginia. In order to get there we had to take a plane. First, we transferred in Boston to another plane and then we flew to Virginia Beach. I was nervous on the plane because I have a fear of flying.
When we airport, my sister and her husband and children were there to meet us. Then my sister and her family took me and my mom shopping at the mall. Then we went back to her house and had some supper, and after we went sightseeing. The next day she took us to the amusement park and to a big field to pick lots of strawberries.
My sister has a nice place and a big backyard. Her children are very nice and they have a dog named Bailey. My nephew plays in the church choir. I was having so much fun that I did not want to go home. I will return again for another visit someday.

Bell is my Guinea Pig. She lives in a cage in my home apartment. She squeaks for food when she hears the bag and thinks it is all for her. I tell her to calm down daddy’s girl. She tries to climb the cage for fun.
I play floor hockey for the Special Olympics. Now practice is over now but practice will be starting again in the fall. I play against Robert, he is a goalie.
