Transportation: Most of the time such as to and from school everyday I get dropped off by my older sister Caitlyn. After school and/or over the weekend I get driven by my mother or I walk to the location I desire to be at.
Goods: Every major holiday my grandfather and grandmother in Hawaii sends via airplane my mother, sister and I, a bunch of gifts from Hawaii such as candy, spices, toys and many other things.
Communication: Every year during Christmas my mother, sister and I send letters to our relatives in the U.K as well as Hawaii. As for the relatives that live in Minnesota we usually just quickly send a text or call them or if we are in need of something.
Adapt: My family has adapted to the frigid coldness of the Minnesotan winters over the decades my family had lived here. Half of my family originated from Hawaii and the other half was from Sweden so it was quite a big step!
Modify: When my great great grandfather came to Minnesota from Sweden, he bought a ton of land and made a town of it and named it Uppsala after the town he grew up in. Accidentally the sign maker labelled it Upsala with only one p rather than the two it was supposed to have which now results in the town of Upsala located in Minnesota.
Depend: He relied on the land because when he first came here there was nothing but empty land. He had to build his own house and make his own farmland from nothing.
In the Midwestern state of Minnesota there are a lot of lakes as it is known as the "Land of 10,000 Lakes". Minnesota's main attraction is the Mall of America located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
