My dad grew up taking care of his brothers, going to school and as he got older playing lots of sports. He and his siblings grew up in california. In middle school he was incharge of his brothers and sister. He would take them to school and back home. At home his dad would make him do lots of chores and other stuff. He would mostly only play with his cousins and siblings. He would some times get to play with friends from church. He wasn't allowed to go where he wanted he was msotly always home and with family. When he was in high school he started to play more sports. He was still incharge of his siblings but now he wasnt stuck at home as much. "I had to wake up get my siblings ready and take them to school and take them back home for many years"(Duarte, E.). After school he would go to practice. "I tryed all the sports when I was in high school" (Duarte, E.). He was a really good crosscountry runner, and soccer player. He was also in football, and swimming. He still has some of his varsity letters from his high school years. "I didnt have much time for other stuff then being at home, practice, or work" (Duarte, E.). As he got older he then got a job. He then mostly passed his youth working, practicing and compeeting, at school, or just at home. He would travel to guatemala in the summers and also spend his time playing soccer. A few years later after high school he met my mom. He moved to storm lake a few years later. "Me and your uncle lived together for a few years and had lots of good times and fun also play soccer together" (Duarte, E.). He also won some trophys and medals but not as many as my uncle.
