Volume One - from the first two years
Rockford, Tennessee I love my town, It's not big or not small. If you go around the backroads at a certain time you will see twenty-five deer at the most. Some time we would see a deer in our backyard. The neighborhood is a police patrolled area. There are two elementry schools in the area. In Maryville there is a college called Maryville College. During the summer they have camps to go to. I love my area and my neighborhood.
Chatfield, Ohio. ThatŐs where I live, population 200. ItŐs really boring.
"A Place I Call Home" Where I live, there is football games, soccer games, and all kinds of sports. It's a good place to skate and riding bikes too. The neighbors are very friendly and thoughtful. My school is in the middle of four neighborhoods. And the best thing is all the kids are near my house !!! And that's what I call, HOME.
I grew up in Hedgesville, West Virginia. I moved away after college in 1994. Fortunately I am only an hour away from home in Fairfax, Virginia but as the picture says that hangs in my house......."There is no place like Hedgesville, WV". It is a beautiful place to live, rustic, plenty of trees, grass, the river nearby, and the people are great. It is the type of town you drive through and everyone waves. Everyone should take time and look it up. You will walk away with a smile.
West Virginia Neighborhoods are great! I live in a nice little neighborhood, there is a school in our neighborhood! ItŐs a nice place to live! I love the mountains and trees the most, they are great to look at! There is a lot to do in our neighborhood! Ride Bikes, Go swimming or just play with your friends! Good ole West Virginia! - Love, Ashley

My name is Bernie. I live in Bixby, Oklahoma just south of Tulsa. I moved here in the summer of 1973 from Levittown, Pennsylvania. Bixby was a small farming town back then. Now 25 years later the City of Tulsa is flowing over into Bixby and the little town is no longer little. My family and I are going to move west just a few miles to get back to the country.
Our names are Mia and Jerian and we are going to write about our town . We lived in south suburban buildings we are moving to the west side in Illinois . It smells and gang bangers and that's why I don't want to live there I want to stay where I am.
" I live in a neighborhood chockful of guys. That wouldn't be too much of a problem except that I'm a girl and I happen to be the same age as them. I have a guy behind me, a guy behind him, two guys on the other side of him, six guys behind the guy that lives behind the guy that lives next to me, three guys on the other side of me, four guys behind me, but more that I can't exactly pinpoint their house. Sure, I get outnumbered, but over time I stopped having anything to do with them. It's easier to hang alone than to hang with people who treat you like trash. So I hang alone at home a lot, getting fired by my sister, messing around on the computer, watching television...that sort of thing. It's getting stale but there isn't anything better."
I live in a wonderful place where there is no crime or gangs my neighborhood has nice friendly people like my neighbors.there is a nice park next to our house where we can go. i just wish everbody can live in a neighbor hood so they could have a great place like mine thank you for your time."
" My name is Jaclyn. I live in Bainbridge,GA. The Flint River runs through our town so people around here go boating a lot. We're also 20 miles from Lake Seminole so we spend a lot of time on the river. I have a lot of fun here so next time your in Georgia maybe you should come see the lake. "

"My neighborhood is a wonderful place. I live near St. Louis, Missouri. A tall and beautiful arch towers over the cities like a giant. When I stand next to it and look up, it never ends! The ride up the arch is like a washing machine, small and shaky. The ride is worth it. When you look out the window the cars and people look like ants. St. Louis is a wonderful neighborhood!"
"My neighborhood is very unique! Well in my neighborhood, we have a little store that is good for little things you may need and not wanna go to a big store.

My neighborhood is a wonderful place to live. It is a neighborhood in Hershey, Pennsylvania where in the winter you can see tons of children sledding and playing in the snow. And in the Summer you can see children running through sprinklers, having watergun fights and adults having cook outs. A lot of times you can see kids bike riding in the spring, and playing in the leaves in the Fall. If you enjoy the woods and Quietness,(sometimes) my neighborhood would be a good place for you!
Hi! We're from New Berlin, Wisconsin. A lot of people think little towns are boring, but New Berlin isn't a very little town. It's got about 36,000 people. There are 2 movie theaters and LOTS of ice cream places! Plus we've got a few festivals and parades that are really fun, like a Christmas parade and a 4th of July parade. There's a lot to be said for 'little' cities. You should stop by some time and find out! - Tom and Nettie

"My name is Denica,and I live wherever the Army sends me, but presently I live in Louisiana. Before that I lived in Germany, California,and Texas. Anyway,in Louisiana we have a celebration called Mardi Gras which is french for fat tuesday. Mardi Gras is also celebrated in France. During Mardi Gras there is a big parade where people on the floats throw these beautiful beads at you. I like Mardi Gras because you get to wear these really nice masks.Even though it's a 5 hour drive from Ft. Polk to New Orleans,it's always Worth it!"
