A few days ago, my cousin Ben left to go to University. He worked really hard to get good grades and always did all his homework. Ben is very kind, helpful,and charming. I admire him because he works hard at school, goes to the gym every day to get stronger, and always cares about others. I also admire him because he is the oldest of 3 children and takes care of his younger brother and sister. He takes them to school every day and helps them with homework.
This summer, Ben and I spent a lot of time together before he left. We went for a run on the beach, and on the way back, he told me different stories about Greek mythological heroes such as Achilles and Spartacus, so the run isn't as boring. He also went boogie boarding with me after the run to cool down. Once Ben started driving, he took me to different places like Sky High and Knotts Berry Farm. He also bought us ice cream any time we wanted. He even babysat my younger brother and sister this summer. He picked them up in the morning, took them swimming, fed them lunch, and played with them.
Now that he is in University I wish him to study well and make many new friends. I will miss him very very much, and I can't wait to see him in December!

We love you Ben!
