Father’s Day is a meaningful time to honor all of the special men in my life. My dad and uncle are the two most important in my life. To begin with, I honor my dad because he is my father and he taught me how to ride a bike. It was not easy teaching me to ride a bike. I just held on to my dad’s hand so tight that he could not let go. I will always remember the look on his face when I finally let go of his hand. Dad was so proud of me. I was proud that he took the time to teach me how to ride a bicycle.
I am pretty smart. I remember going on vacation to New York City with my dad and two older sisters. Twice a year, Dad takes his three daughters on a trip out of town. We walked through Central Park and went to see Broadway. It was fun to go shopping in New York. The best part was that my dad didn’t fall asleep because he sleeps when he sits still too long. My dad is a “workaholic” who shows us love whenever he gets a chance.
In addition, I would like to honor my uncle Dwight because he spends a lot of time with me and my cousins. Shyhiem, Lili, and I went fishing with Uncle Dwight for the first time. We caught a lot of fish with his help. It was scary at first, but we learned how to put the bait on the hook and throw it into the water. We had so much fun that we slept on the way home. The next time, my uncle left to come and take me bowling. That was the first time that I had gone bowling. Lili won the first bowling match and I won the second. Bowling was fun, too. It took a lot of concentration and practice to knock down the bowling pins.
Honoring the special men in my life is why Father’s Day is so meaningful to me!
