S: My Life in Chicago
FC: My Life in Chicago
1: I dedicate this book to my family because my family has helped me with everything. Some of the things are helping me clean my room when I was younger and helping me do my chores - but then I guess they were really not chores. I will always love my family. Thank you!!
3: I was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1998. I lived most of my life there.
4: I had many friends in Chicago. My best friend's name was Lily. We spent everyday together, or at least, we tried to. My next best friend's name was Mariah. We still keep in touch with each other to this day! They will always be with me, no matter what.
7: When we lived in Chicago, we had a specific pizza night. Every Friday night we all went out to Nancy's Pizza. We always got there at 5:30. After awhile, the workers there would start to have our pizza ready by the time we got there - an extra large cheese for the five of us. It was sad to leave; the workers there were sad too.
9: While we were in Chicago we babysat a guinea pig named Gizmo. One stormy winter day, my sister brought home Gizmo. Then there was a snowstorm and we had Gizmo for two weeks. He was my sister's teacher's pet. This was the best time of my life!!!!!!
11: My dad worked at Shore Bank in Chicago. Everything he did was very interesting and exciting. He always worked very hard,and he tried everything possible to make us happy.
13: Sometimes, dads do not know how to do hair. My mom was on vacation and I had to go to school. He tried to fix it, but he could not succeed. Dads can even be a pain in the face - like in the backyard at my house in Chicago! My dad thought it would be funny if he threw snow in my face. Everyone else thought it was funny too, except for me.
14: On Christmas we all spent time together opening presents and taking pictures in front of the fireplace. We all loved Christmas days, we are still able to do some of the same things here like we did in Chicago. It's just not as fun.
16: It was about time for us to leave Chicago. I did not know that though. My parents knew this day would come sometime, but we never got this news - until the day actually came.
18: The days got better as we got used to Ohio. I became happier and made more friends. We didn't go on as many vacations, though. We also didn't go outside as much anymore because we missed the Chicago tree that we loved. I will always love and miss Chicago!
