I am from

I am from hot summers and cold winters and the in between falls

I am the T-shirts I where no matter how cold it is
I am from long summer days and short winter nights

Oww! Yells the bat as I hit a triple, first base, second base, third base, but I don't stop there, I run for home, and I make it.

From my jewel collection to home town baseball
From the fort I played in to neighborhood friends

From Froyo for dinner day to carving pumpkins
"One sec", I yell, as my mom calls me for dinner
From dads meatloaf to moms cranberry sauce
I am from runny eggs and rice with the vinegar half emptied on a single meal

I am from J.K. Rowling and Hermione Granger

I am from cereal and TV dinners

From the original Nintendo to the newest one

I am from cute little dogs to playful big dogs

I am from biking at the church and school parking lot
I am from the park at our old house we called "our park"

I am a hot oven on summer days burning 5 degrees hotter than everyone else
