My Family

I live in a house outside the city. I have an older brother and a younger sister. I am the middle child. My father is a doctor and my mother is a teacher at a local school. My brother loves to play sport and he is on the football team. My sister is very clever and works hard everyday. My aunt and uncle live with us too; it is my father’s brother and his wife. They’ve been living with us since my sister was born. I love living with my big family. We spend lots of time together. My siblings and I love to play board games and watch movies together. Our home is always filled with love and laughter and we love each other very much.
