FC: Culture Mix Book By Stephanie Diedrich | 2011
1: THE FAMILY
2: SYMBOLS: CAMPING AND FISHING WITH THE FAMILY
3: When I was little I would go to Pelican Lake every year with my family. It was something I always looked forward to because it was the only time I would get to go boating—one of my favorite things to do in the summertime. We also did a lot of fishing and swimming there.
5: Every year, to this day, I go with my family to a campground in Marion where we spend the weekend. We have our own camper and do a lot together when we're there. Occasionally we go up there in the winter, as shown in the picture, and do fun things such as sledding pulled by our golf cart. That's always what I look forward to the most! | SYMBOLS
6: FAMILY VACATION—AT DISNEY WORLD
7: SYMBOLS | A couple years ago I went to Disney World for the first time. It was our first big family vacation so it was a lot of fun. We ended up staying for a whole week! Seeing the castle at night was definitely the best part because it was all lit up and glowing. I think they only do that around Christmastime so we were lucky to have gone so close to Christmas!
8: VA | Celebrating birthday's is something that we do every year. We feel that it is an important part of being a close family.
11: MARRIAGE | Marriage is very important in my family. There have been no divorces, and one of the main values we share is that it's not very acceptable to have children before marriage.
12: VALUES/NORMS | First communion is something that all three of us kids had to participate in. We believe in being confirmed into the Catholic church, and this is one of the milestones to achieve before getting there.
13: FIRST COMMUNION
14: VALUES/NORMS: GRADUATION | Graduation is another important aspect of our values. It's not acceptable to drop out of high school, and college is a must.
16: MATERIAL CULTURE | TENNIS
17: TRACK | In my family, sports are very important. All of us are really competitive and have to be in at least one sport. If we aren't then we have to at least join a club at school.
18: MATERIAL CULTURE | I started taking swimming lessons when I was little. I find it really important because I followed through with taking them and eventually got my lifeguarding license.
20: MY FAMILY | The most important thing in my life. I don't know what I would do without them because we're all very close and help each other with everything.
21: MATERIAL CULTURE
22: THINGS I LIKE TO DO
23: I really enjoy bowling with my friends.
24: THINGS I LIKE TO DO: ATTEND KIMBERLY FOOTBALL GAMES
25: GO TO BONFIRES!
