My name is Richard. My birthday is September 5th. I live in a yellow house in Evansdale with my dad and Gary and Marvin – my brothers. My family got all boys! There is my dad – he’s a boy, and there is Delmer in California and Gary, Marvin, Bob, Merlyn. There is Galen, but he died.
My mom died in a car accident a long time ago. It was really scary. We were driving in Wisconsin and our van hit a semi-truck. Gary got a broken arm, but we were okay, except my mom died.
We have SCL (supported community living) staff help us at home. Gary cooks. He cooks lasagna – that’s my favorite. And I clean the house; I “Swiffer” my bedroom and I like to vacuum. I clean the bathroom and clean the bathtub with Ajax. I got a new bed, too – you should see it!
On Monday, Lien is going to take me to Motel 6 to go swimming. I like to swim. I go shopping with Linda and with Jeff. I like to go to Wal-Mart and I might buy my girlfriend a watch for Valentine’s Day or maybe a pretty dress.
I can’t wait for our Valentine’s party and I have a girlfriend named Jamei – I love that girl! I want to take her on a date and maybe get pizza and hold hands.
I like to watch the movie “Annie” on T.V. and my favorite color is blue. I took a shower today and I try to take one every day.
Me and my brothers like to ride bikes or walk around Evansdale. Everyone knows us and a lot of people say Hi to us. I can’t wait for spring and then I can wear my shorts!
