What it’s Like to be a Military Kid

To be a military kid, it’s fun and I get to explore the world. I want to go to Florida but there are crocodiles and it could easily bite my toe off and that's just weird. Never mind that, I mean my Dad goes to a big metal place. I think it's a war house so if someone gets hurt then there are Doctors and helicopters. I think my Dad works too long on Fridays because every Friday he comes home at like 11:32pm. When it’s Saturday, he sleeps until like 1:00 pm. I don’t mind as long as I get to play with my friend once a day. It's like I get to make new friends all over the world and have fun. Me and my older sister will take his hat. I love my family and that my Dad is military. If he was not in the military then I would not be here right now. Writing this is fun and my friends are fun too. Definitely not least, my teacher Mrs. Baird is fun and nice. Being a military kid is nice and you sometimes have to take out the dogs. I get bored but I climb trees to have fun. Moving is NOT FUN. I MEAN YOU HAVE TO PACK EVERYTHING INTO A MOVING TRUCK. THEN TO JUST GET IT 2 OR 3 MONTHS LATER. Well when you get all your stuff, the anger goes bye bye. This assignment was fun. That’s what it feels like to be a military kid for me.
