November Freewrite Have you ever gone on a vacation that you were completely excited for but had no idea what you were doing? Do you think you could survive a long drive all the way down to Florida? The one thing I can’t wait to do is come back home on January 2nd and brag to my friends about the great time I had. On December 22nd I am going to be leaving for a vacation that I'm sure I'm going to love. My grandmother and uncle have a lot planned. Have you ever been able to go to Florida and come home to brag to your friends about swimming in winter? What if you had to spend the whole drive from auburn to Florida in a twelve passenger van with your uncle his wife and their two kids plus the five siblings you live with? I am going to Florida for Christmas break; we are going for a long drive with my uncle, his wife and two kids to live with my grandmother’s mom for Christmas break. That way she won’t be alone. When we get off the bus from school that day we have to pack and get ready, after we are packed and ready to go we pile in the van to pick my uncle and his family. When we are finally happy with our seating arrangement we begin our long drive down to Florida. By the time we leave Florida it will be the first day we go back to school after the break. I find it funny and amazing that once again this year we are missing the first day of school due to a family vacation. The cool thing I think is amazing is that when everyone here is freezing I will be swimming at a beach in nice warm weather. The only thing I want to happen before I leave is I want it to snow. I hope while I'm in Florida that I could still communicate with my friends on the phone or over face book. I hope this will be a very good vacation I can’t wait to see what Florida is like.
