caitlin Adamcik Mon Enfance

French2 period 3

Quand j'avais 10 ans. J'habitais à Sugar Land. J'allais à Austin Parlway Elementary. J'étais en 5iéme.

J'aimes une pizza et les spaghetto. Je détastais les épinard. Je regardais Pok'emon. J'écoutais Backstreet Boys at Spice Girls. Je lisais Harry Potter. Mes meilleures amies étaient Cara et Lauren.

Je me leavis vers 7H. Les week-end, je jouais avec mes amies et je regardais le télé. Pendant les vacanes, on voyagaient Hawaii.
