Grade 5


My Home

my home

the smell of Mom’s homemade chicken pot pie
gathering around the table
glasses clanging
drinks spilling
bumping elbows

TV way too loud, turn it dawn!

Santa visits
Presents hiding in all the closets
dog knocking the tree over
happy birthday to you!
watching dad carve the turkey

The sound of dog barking!!

pizza is ordered
popcorn in the microwave
games picked
movie chosen
snuggling in grandma’s old blanket

Siblings fighting!

watching siblings hockey game
skates on the four
tripping over hockey gear
kayaks in the garage
bikes on the driveway

Beds unmade, laundry on the flour!

Mom making soup
Dad tucking me in
sister getting the tylenol
brother getting orange juice

my family
my home
