Decent Essays
Have you ever misjudged some people and you thought that you did not like them, but then they turned out to be really nice people? I have misjudged my neighbors when my family first moved to Sartell. When I first moved to Sartell, I assumed that I would not like my neighbors because I did not know any of them. When I met them, they turned out to be nice and respectful people. First of all, when I was little, I used to live in Wahpeton, North Dakota. When I used to live in Wahpeton, I had a lot of good friends there. In Wahpeton, North Dakota I visited a zoo and went to a park. I visited one of my good friends every day and I hung out with them during the day.

My favorite animal at the zoo was the Bengal Tiger. Once we visited the Bengal Tigers, I said, “look Tigers”, they were fascinating to see. The Chahinkapa Zoo also had a merry-go-round that we would go to and I had a lot of fun riding on the merry-go-round. I heard the peaceful music and I heard the sound of the drum, boom, while I was riding the merry-go-round. I also felt the movement of going up and down on the merry-go-round.

My family and I did many activities with our neighbors. For example, we went on numerous fun trips. My neighbors and I went skiing in Montana, visited Florida, went to my cabin, and we went camping together. We would also eat dinners together and we would play fun games with them. The meals that we had together were very delicious and then we would have dessert, which was also very delicious. The games that we played were Ping-Pong, pool, card games, and board games. During the winter, my neighbors and I would also play hockey on our pond in our backyard.
