What My Dad Means to Me
by Oscar Farias
My father is very special, and he’s a great dad. He helps me with my violin, and he knows how to play guitar, which is very helpful for my playing. And he always talks to me before I go to sleep. He loves to play games with me, and helps me a lot with my bike. (Now I’m very good at it.) He reads to me, and he’s a great person to talk to when you’re feeling down. He’s a very good role model. He likes to take us all to movies and to a lot of museums. And he’s fun to go out with to a restaurant. We eat and have dessert; and when I get to have a chocolate shake, it’s really great. And he helps me when I get frustrated with my LEGO sets. He helps me with my homework.
He gives me hugs; and, of course, I know he loves me.
