My Mom


Do you think that a girl could be a roofer? Well guess what my mom is a roofer. My mom owns her own business, she works hard to get her nice rides and a nice house. In this essay I will show you about my inspiration, Amanda, my mom.

My mom used to be a soccer mom, but now she owns her own business which is called “Tore it Up Roofing.”  She works long hours.  She manages her own crew of workers who replace shingles on roofs.  She just started her business this year but already it is doing great. So these are the examples of how my mom is now a business woman.

Yesterday when she was coming home she had to pick up a toilet from my grandpa’s house.  She didn’t know that there was electric out let uncovered. She was backing up with the toilet in her hands and she got shocked by 220 volts of electricity! This is one example of her hard work.  Other hard work that my mom does is when she takes care of the bills and helps me on my homework for the day.

My mom, my brothers, and I enjoy riding dirt bikes and four wheelers. Once my mom hurt her back when she jumped the four wheeler and landed wrong. When I jumped the dirt bike my brother was going under when me on the dirt bike and I was flying over my brother and my where saying wow.

Dallas

 
         Once you fly into this airport, you can visit all the different sites in the area.  Besides the Dallas Stadium, you could go to the Dallas Arts District and see the Dallas Museum of Art or Perot Museum of Nature and Science where they have a children’s museum.  If Art isn’t your thing, you could go to Six Flags.  Six Flags is a theme park in Arlington that has rides and shows.  Other professional sports teams are Texas Rangers that play major league baseball, and Dallas Mavericks that are a professional basketball team.  They even have National Hockey League with the Dallas Stars.
    If you don’t get enough of the people at these busy entertainment facilities, you can people watch.  In 1980 there was about 14,229,191 people in Texas.  Now it is almost 27 million. Texas has people from many different cultures.  For many centuries only Indians lived in Texas.  In 1541 the Spanish explorers came to Texas.  The Spanish married the Indians and we have what is now called Mestizos.  There are people from all over now including Irish, Scandinavian, Czechs, and poles.
     The things to see and do is endless in Texas.  Whether it is watching a professional sports team, heading to a museum or theme park, or just watching the different nationalities of people, you will love to visit there.

   Dallas is the third largest city in the USA . It is located in north central Texas. John Neely Bryan founded Dallas in 1841. The population started to grow when they built railroads. The cites success still depends on transportation. They have one of the busiest airport in the world.
