Ahhh…it’s sooo good to be home! I had a great time on my trip. One day, we got to visit Charleston. We saw some lovely houses including one that is for sale- for sixteen million dollars! We also passed a cemetery and saw one gravestone- the person was born in 1630! By far, the coolest thing we saw were the fountains! In this one park in Charleston, kids are allowed to play in the fountains! The kids with us LOVED it. You really just wear your swimming suit and play in (not on) the fountains!
On my last day, I called my Mom to tell her that we were leaving in the morning and I would be home later the next night. She could tell from my voice that something wasn’t quite right. I knew that if I talked too much, I would start crying so it was only after some probing that she found out what was wrong.
“Well, I just really miss you all.”
“Well, we miss you too and can’t wait for you to get home. I love you, okay?”
Oh, I wanted to be home sooo bad! It was the longest I had ever been away from home without any of my family with me. I missed everyone more than I thought I could.
After I got home, I was talking with my Mom.
“You were really homesick, weren’t you?”
She chuckled. “You’re such a homebody.”
I looked up the definition of that word.
I guess I am one. At least the first part of that definition. I love to be at home. As to the second part, maybe some would consider me unadventurous. I just like to think that I prefer to go on adventures with my family, not by myself. They are my favorite people in the world.
So….I am a homebody. A proud one.
