I have a happy family, there are five family members. They are father, mother, grandpa, grandma and me. We are kind to each other.
When I was four, I was short, fat and lovely. I played with toys all the time and I never did homework. Mom didn’t have to care about my score. When she finished work, she always played with me. She was young and slim at that time. My father was thin and tall and short-sighted. He often sang songs for me and danced hip-pop, he often made me laugh. Grandpa and Grandma were young at that
time. Grandma was beautiful, young and Grandpa was handsome.
But great changes have taken place in my family.
I am tall and pretty now. Also, I study a lot. Mom has to care about my score and I always break her heart. She is still very pretty, but she is not as young as before. Father is still tall, but he becomes fat now. Grandpa and Grandma are old now, and they start to play Taichi.
See, great changes have taken place in our family, but we still love each other!
I would fly to The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland myself where has a long history . It would take me about ten hours to get there. I would bring an umbrella with me because of there wet weather.
At the first day，I would go to The London Eye where is one of the biggest Ferris wheels in the world. It was also called Millennium WheelLondon Eye（千禧之轮). I would look around almost London.
The next day，I would visit two of the most famous
colleges in Britain. They are the university of Oxford and the university of Cambridge. The university of Oxford were built in 1176. And it besides the Rvier Thames. I would go for a walk in the college to see the beautiful view. I would't stay there for a long time. Then I would go to the university of Cambridge.
