The Meaning of Home

How you turn a roof and four walls into a home. What I think is the most important thing is to make your home feel safe, you can do whatever you think is necessary to make your home feel safe. Whether it’s getting a dog or even installing a security system.

What I Like to do at my home. There are a lot of things I like to do when I’m at my home whether it’s playing video games or just hanging out with family and friends. I and my family will watch T.V or play with my little brother I and my family do a lot of fun things. That’s what I do when I’m home.

The smell of my home. My home kinda smells like oranges. but every night my home smells different sometimes it smells like soup, tacos, and anything else you can think of. The reason my house smells like oranges is because my mom put in essential oils into this thing that squirts it out. This is how a simple smell can turn your house into your home.

The people in my home. There are not that many people in my home. There is my Mom, stepdad, little brother, big brother, the downstairs people, and me. I don’t know the downstairs people that well, in fact, I’m actually kinda scared of them. Sometimes my Nan and Gramps come over and bring me candy or treats.

And that’s how you turn just a structure into a nice and safe home.
