The Meaning Of Home

This my story.

I used to have this house, it was a tiny, yellow house with two bedrooms and ONE BATHROOM!!! We lived by a liquor store, not so great. It was one month before I was born when my parents realized that, they needed to get a new house. My big brother was going to kindergarten!

They looked and looked and looked but there was nothing that fitted their needs until they realized that they could just build a house. They got the builders and the workers. Everybody worked hard and on June 4th, 2009 it was finally finished. My parents were so excited to see the finished project!

They loved it. The new house feels safe; we are in a good neighbourhood. We have made more memories here than we did in our other house. We have grown our family to seven, two dogs, a cat, 2 love birds and a rabbit.

It has been 11 years and I really feel this will be our forever home. I would love one of those families you save to feel the same way. Do you have a forever home?

Thank you for reading my report.

I hope you liked it.
