The Best Family

I have four brothers and one sister. I’m the youngest. The oldest is twenty- eight. I was an uncle when I was six! It’s fun being in a big family.

If you’re in a little family, you mostly don’t have anyone to talk to or play with.

My favorite thing to do with my family is to go out somewhere fun after church. If we go out to eat, my favorite food is cheese enchiladas. Sometimes we invite my grandpa and family, so we need two tables or more put together. On my birthday, we get together to eat my Mom’s strawberry cake.

My family is the best.
