Sense of Place I’ve gone to the same church in Hartford almost every Sunday since I was born. The old building holds countless number of memories for my family and me. It has set the stage for a number of Christmas plays and Sunday School concerts. It’s where my little brother
Henry David Thoreau's Where I lived, and What I Lived For I found Henry David Thoreau?s ?Where I Lived, and What I Lived For? made a very convincing argument. He has many examples to support his beliefs. Thoreau stresses the importance and value of living the simplest life nature affords, which I believe is as important now as it was in his day.
Hello all my wonderful viewers aka Mom! I am so not exited to share my dreams or um goals or hopes for my blogging season ending in early June. I am so unfortunate to tell you my English teacher made
The place that I would write about is the local playground. As a child, one of my favorite things to do was playing at the park with friends, siblings, and cousins. I have many memories that I could write about. I also think that the park is a place that a lot of people have fond memories of from when they were kids, as well. Hopefully, this makes my essay easy to relate to and more enjoyable for the reader to
I grew up in Cary and Barrington Illinois. During the summers, my family would stay at my Cary house because it was located on the Fox River. This left me when very fun memories of being with my family. Since the house I lived in was located on a river

Memoir- Moving Day Cares I sat at the window staring at the wave of traffic waiting for my mum to come and pick me up. All the cars looked like a massive rainbow serpent moving along the road and I was trying to look for my mums purple car. Every morning
Every now and then I look back on my childhood memories. As a child I was very lucky, my family loved to go on vacations. Growing up we went on vacations almost every other year, small and big. I have been to Florida multiple times and got the chance to go to some of the many amusement parks including Disney world, Universal studios, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and SeaWorld. Out of all the vacations I have taken I would say my favorite is the trip we took a few years ago to Aruba.
At the age of 4 or 5 we moved down the road from my grandmother, in a nice 2 bedroom brick house, one bath, where I am currently living now. It was only my mom, dad & I living there for about 10 years, then my mom ended up getting pregnant & had another child. It caused the house to become a little cramped up as my sister got older. More
The swooshing of the waves lightly grabbing at the shore fills my ears as I stand on the stone stairs. After so many years they have started to crumble, the small pieces sticking to my bare, wet feet. Large rocks surround the stairs, their colors arranged from white to pink to gray. The sandbox, lined with dark brown planks of wood, mocks me as I remember burying my feet in the sand. Near the sandbox is a light brown picnic table, gum sticking to the bottom waiting for its next victim to touch it. The smell of fish and snails reeks, but I find myself inhaling as much as I can. At the other side of the lake is a thin, dark green line of trees, houses peeking out from behind them. To my left is the hidden path that curves and winds finally leading
The playground was my favorite place to be in as a child. There was no day I would stop by and play. Some days I stayed there until night fell and my mom would want to take us home. The paly area I mostly stayed on was the monkey bars, Oh what fun! Swinging from one side to the other until my arms weakened. I loved being there especially when there were other kids which I would play games with. I really wish I could go back to those moments of happiness, my awesome
I feel the gentle hot sand beneath my bare feet the tips of shells peek from the holes in the sand. The ocean….. I look over to see Allie sitting in her purple beach chair and i began to walk over across the sand. I haven't been to Willow cove beach since I was 3 when my mom was drinking all night at the beach bar and left me until someone called the cops at 2 in the morning to pick me up. So now I usually go surfing at Clearwater beach instead.

I loved exploring the woods, and The woods were on the island and right next to our house. I could run through them with my dad or grandpa. We loved riding 4-wheelers through them. The woods were one of my favorite places.
When I was a young child I would love to hear my parents tell me that we were going on a trip. I would be full of excitement, because I knew that we would be going to a place that I had never seen before. My parents, my brother, and I would pack our luggage and venture out in our small gray minivan. Three of my most cherished memories in our minivan are when we went to Disney World, the beach, and the mountains.
