Role Models

It’s rare to find kids with positive role models now days. Some kids will say super man or there mom or dad but sometimes they aren’t even positive they could be drug dealers or killers. Well I have three. I don’t know if they are the most positive but they have a big impact on my life. They would do anything for their little sister. Anything. Whether it’s pick her up when she’s had a bad day or just listen and not say a word.
Those three people are my brother, Callan, and my two sisters, Hannah and Hollyanne. Hollyanne is my biological sister meaning we have the same mom and dad. But I have grown up with Hannah and Callan. We went to the same daycare when we were little. We would play house and wish our parents were married. Then when I turned four they finally did! When we were little we would go on adventures together. We would always get grounded for twenty minutes. Even now we have so much fun with the smallest things. Some nights we sit up for hours and talk about memories. Like when I was in kindergarten we would sit down stairs and record songs on the tape recorder about Shawn Marshal, Hannah’s boyfriend. We were all so close. Our relationship then really impacts on our relationship now.

They all have their pros and cons. For instance Callan is good for listening and isn’t really bad at anything in my mind. One time when I was having a bad day he sped down the street before even thinking about how he could get in trouble because he doesn’t even have his license. It’s good to go to him for guy advice. Hollyanne gives me strong advise. She helps me stay strong and stick up for myself. Hannah gives the best advise because our personalities are most alike. We want to be strong but nice. I love all

my brothers and sisters with all my heart. I am very close to all of them. If I ever lost them i don’t know what i would do. I learn from their mistakes, and they teach me well.
