The first line from the poem “Home” by Edgar Albert Guest which states “It takes a heap o’ livin’ in a house t’ make it home.” Shows that it takes a lot to make a place home. Once you find a place you call home, it will be hard to make any other place feel the same. It is 2008, and I am eight years old. I have lived in the same house with the same people, the same friends, the same school, and the same church. It was a small town and everyone knew each other.

When Sunday School was over we got to come back upstairs to our parents and we would sit through the general service. My church put on two plays a year. One of the plays took place in the spring the other one happened during winter. All of the kids got to participate in both of the plays. I remember one year I even got to play Mary and I was only 5.
