My childhood memories are mainly just bits and pieces. My memories are the only things that stay constant. I can pull them out like an old book and retrieve them while the world around me changes so rapidly. My favorite and most vivid memories are the summers of my childhood up until I was 10 years of age.
During the summer I would spend most of the day at my grandmother’s house while my parents worked. Those summers is where I met my two best friends, Michelle and Mitch. Michelle was four years older than me and was an only child and immediately claimed me to be her little sister. Mitch was two years older than me and always told me I was the sister he always wanted.

I guess because of the age difference Michelle was the first to start getting distand and going off on her own. So I started to become even closer to Mitch. I would still see Michelle at birthday parties etc. Things began to changed and we never got together as a group anymore. It was either me and Mitch or me and Michelle, which was very difficult for me, because I was so used to being all three of us, instead of just two, but eventually I got used to it.
The bond between Mitch and I grew stronger as we spent more time together as we spent more time together. We would spend hot afternoons at my house watching moviews or playing board games. Even though we
