Hello my name is Gelyan Santiago, I,m 12 years old and I’m in 7th grade at Dobie Junior High.
This summer started off very boring, I didn’t have anyhting to do. Although in June, on the weekends, we had to go to my little brother’s baseball games.
In July my family and I were so excited for July tenth. Why do you ask? Well on July tenth we were going to go to our hometown in Puerto Rico. We stayed there for a month and it was really fun.
We went to surprise all of my family over there. No one knew we were going so it was a big surprise. We haven’t been there for 3 years so, we were glad we could finally visit.
The first week we already had plans since we got the tickets to go to a special event called “Carnaval”, it was basically a series of Basketball games between the hometowns of Ponce and Santa Isabel. After all of the games we would stay because there will always be a famous artist singing and everyone else dancing. WE HAD A BLAST!!!
My 2 siblings and I stayed there for a month with my grandma and my grandpa, but my mom and my dad had to leave in 2 weeks because they had to work. Well they left, not a big deal.
I thought the rest of the trip was going to be boring since my grandma barely drives but, I was wrong. She took us to the beach, a pool, Altitude Park and more places. We had a good time there.
When we got back I was kind of sad but really tired since we were on a airplane for 5 hours. Then we got to Houston and stayed there for 2 hours waiting for our plane, After that, we got on the plane for 35 minutes. I felt really weird when I was in my house since in Puerto Rico the houses are small and here they are big.
Then we had two weeks until school started. When I got back I hung out with my best friend Fatima because she goes to Corbett. Then school started.
