My Favorite Place (the meaning of home)

My home is my favorite, it sends a shiver down my spine. In my house, I live with my mom and dad, Naomi(my younger sister), Theo and Micah(my younger brothers), and a puppy named Birdie(who is about 4 months old). My house makes me smile and sigh. It’s my favorite. It’s my favorite because for the last 4 years I’ve lived, ate, and done things in it. My house used to smell like smoke because the people that originally lived in the house smoked. Whenever my family and I got home, it smelled like a campfire.

On Saturday, we do chores and screen time, and we eat pancakes on most of the Saturdays. After I do my chores I like to play animal crossing. It’s mostly just making an island better looking. We also have a bin of lego that I like to play with. I like to build houses with it, and then play with them (and of course I destroy them later).

So what is the meaning of home?
The meaning of home to me is the familiar faces, the happy sounds, the great sights; that is the meaning of home.
