An important event in my life was when I moved from San Antonio Texas to Illinois. I was in 3rd grade when I moved back so around 9 years old, my family and I decided to move to Texas when I was around 2 years old. The last day of 3rd grade I stayed home and packed everything my mom let us stay until our friends got off the bus so we could say our last good byes. It took us around a day to get to Rolla Missouri where my grandpa had lived at the time and still does. We finally made it to Casyville Illinois where my grandma lived, we stayed their for 1 year while my dad was getting us a house to stay in. In the beginning of 5th grade my dad had gotten us a house and everything was looking good from then on, I still live in the house. This is important to me because it molded the everyday life that I have now. I learned that change isn’t always for the worse.
