We are always joking and learning how to be teenagers. We are looking for a loving family who make us feel safe and love us.
As brother and sister, one of our favorite things to do is sit and talk about our days together. We enjoy talking with each other about our friends, school, and everyday life. We also look forward to having discussions as a family. We like to tell jokes and joke around with each other, or make others around us laugh. This is also bonding time for us. We enjoy playing video games and competing against each other. We enjoy going swimming and will compete who is the fastest swimmer. We both enjoy attending family events such as birthdays, holidays, and amusement parks, such as Six Flags. We both love school and talking about school together. One of the activities we highly enjoy is movie night as a family on the weekends.
