All My Life

By: Bryanna F.
Texas, Age 12

I was born in Hartford Connecticut. I grew up in Denton Texas ever since I was 3 months old. When I was 5 years old I was sitting, and dangling my feet in a pool. It was 8 ft deep. One of my cousins friends was holding my hand so I would not fall in. Suddenly my hand slipped and I fell in the water. My cousin jumped into the water with her clothes on and carried me out. It felt like I was in the water forever, but it was only 2 minutes. My favorite thing is my Grandma's special Bluberry cobler. My Great Grandma passed it down to her. It has also been passed down for many generations. She only, and always, cooks it on Thanksgiving.
