On my ninth birthday, my father gave me a pair of roller skates. I did not think that I would like them. Later on that day,I put them on, and skated on the drive way, and down the street. I enjoyed it.
Those teenage years have gone by quickly. I can remember when I turned 14, and how excited I was to start high school. It was pretty exciting for me on my first day,but also pretty scared of not being able to find all my classes.
When I was sixteen, I joined a youth group at our church. It was called "Young Peoples group." Once a week we gathered downstairs in one of the Sunday school rooms at the church, and we sang some songs, and had some discussions. Some times we would have some special events such as hay rides which I participated in. Almost every year in the Fall we went on weekend retreats at a lodge which was used for summer camps. I had a good time. We played sports such as soccer, played some skits, and we sang some songs there as well.
I keep those memories in my heart as I go to church or when I recall all the good time which took place.
