I was the “all-American” boy that like to play with trucks and blocks. During a Wednesday afternoon after my nap, I was stacking a tower of colorful wooden and plastic blocks.

My favorite holiday is Halloween, it almost became the year’s most popular festival. Many people have great enthusiasm to celebrating this festival. Every fall, people pick large orange pumpkins with curved grimaces and put a burning candle inside. They are called “jack-o’-lanterns”, which means “jack of the lantern,” but the most excited are the kids. The kids put on their costumes to look like curtain cartoon hero.
“I think so!” replied Jason with an excited overtone. Once a year, on Halloween night, Mrs. Janet would make us a pumpkin pie. Just dessert night, she called it.

Every Halloween, my cousins and I get together late that night and egg people houses. Well last year, we decided to go to the same neighborhood and egg houses again. Little did we know that, the people that stayed on the corner of that neighborhood was patiently waiting on us. Soon as we egged their house, they let their pit-bull out on us. He chased us, and I’m jumping on everybody cars and trash cans outside.

There are so many memories that they may not go in order according to age but they are they ones that I hold close to my heart. I remember when I was in kinder-garden or first grade I would leave school and it took a few days for my mom and step dad to figure out where I went. I remember that I use to leave and go to my granddaddy 's porch and fall asleep on his porch, when he found me he would let me in and tell me that I should be at school. He would make the best peanut and jelly sandwich ever so I thought any ways, hey would cut it diagonally and cut what I called the bones witch was the crust and then hey would sit in his chair and we would cuddle in his chair and watch cartoons Flintstones to be exact till my mom showed it was an everyday thing Monday thru Friday.

“One eye was slit in his puffy cheek and a great scab had formed on his left knee.” (Golding 156) I can visualize Ralph’s face, the size of a balloon with two slits cut out for his eyes.

As a child growing up, our parents taught us many fictional characters and myths. For example, Santa Calsus, the Easter Bunny, and the myth behind the tooth fairy. Theses thoughts or “tales” are placed in our head so as children, we have the idea of a perfect happy world. In elementary school, I was taught that thanksgiving was simply a time to stuff your face with turkey. As a grew a bit older thanksgiving was expounded and I learned that the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Plymouth by Pilgrims and Native Americans, and this information was still incorrect.
State Champs? I Think Almost When I first walk into my room, there is all of the basic things all around the room such as clothes, furniture, desk supplies, and homework; however, in the corner of my room is the book shelf my grandfather built for me.

Even though I recently stopped playing softball, I played for ten long years with my dad by my side the whole time as the head coach.
