9: Family Fun In our free time my brother Alvaro and I like to watch television. We take turns picking the shows we want to watch. My favorite shows are SpongeBob and iCarly.
11: Traditions My family does a lot of fun things together. We go to the playground, shopping, and for ice cream. One of my favorite things that we do is puzzle time. My brother and I race to see who can put the puzzles together first.
13: My family is from a small town in Mexico. We moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 2010. It was hard for me when I first moved here. At school everyone spoke English and I only spoke Spanish. Things are getting easier for me now because I have learned to speak English. I like living in Memphis, but I still miss my old home.
15: Holiday Fun Birthdays are very important in my family. We always have a party for each person's birthday. Last year for my birthday we had a pinata, candy, and cake. A lot of my family and friends came over. I got a lot of presents. My favorite present was a black dress. I looked beautiful in it.
