My name is Brettney Marshall and I just moved to Pennsylvania from New Hampshire. I’m nine years old and in the 4th grade. My mom’s a student at Wilson College even though she’s already smart enough. I have a little brother, Logan, who can be troublesome, but he’s alright. We’re part of the Women With Children program and live on campus. I like to read and am reading the Harry Potter series and Phantom of the Opera. I also enjoy playing Legos.
Moving to Pennsylvania was a bit hard at first. It was hard leaving everything and everyone I knew behind. Even though I was sad, I was a bit excited too. My new friends at Wilson College are great. I love to play with the other kids outside. Their moms and my mom love to chat while we play. I have some college student friends as well and one even let me ride her horse.
School’s going good as well. My new school is a lot bigger than my old school. Making friends was tough considering I’m not used to having to make new friends. I was at my last school for six years with basically the same people. I did make a very good friend at school named Abigail, though. I really enjoy going to the library at school. We can take two books out at a time. At my last school we could only take out one.
So far I’m enjoying living in Pennsylvania. I’m looking forward to learning violin and making more new friends. I think this will be a great four years and a wonderful start to a new life!
