Home Connection


Have you ever been frustrated that the wifi would not connect to your device? I know I am home when my wifi connects, and that makes me feel safe. Everyone’s meaning of home is a little different, just like the size of everyone’s home is different. Some are bigger, some are smaller. But home means something awesome to everyone.

Home is a warm place in the winter, but cool and refreshing in the summer. One of my favorite things to do, after a long day, is flop down on my couch or my bed. I have a very busy schedule, especially with sports, but sometime all I want to do is go home with my family. That is where I feel the most comfortable.

Home is where my friends and I like to play hockey, soccer, basketball and blitz ball. My favorite sport to play with my friends is road hockey because my favorite sport is ice hockey. Even though I am sporty, I also like to play video games with my friends. My friends are always welcome in my home.

When I travel, and someone asks me where home is I say Fredericton, New Brunswick. I like Fredericton because there are lots of sports teams and nice people. All of my friends and most of my family live in Fredericton. Fredericton is a beautiful city in all four seasons.

How do you connect with your home? You connect with your home through your family. Some families connect through sports, like my family. Some families connect by having supper together and chatting. Some families take vacations, walk their dog, or go for a bike ride together. Like connecting to the wifi when I get home, all of these things connect families and make them stronger.
