A Simple Summer

Length: 2 Pages 550 Words

As a child, summertime fun in the sun began with the ringing of the last bell of the day. It signified that it was time to throw away old home work assignments and to forget about anything to do with school-for three months at least. Summer time is a time of simple pleasures and exciting times of the year. Three months of late night sleepovers with best friends, hanging out at the galleria/water park, and not having to worry about homework had been lingering in the mind since classes began in the fall. When summer vacation finally rolls around, I can never make up my mind-on what to do first. Shall it be riding bikes to the park with friends or hanging out at the mall? One thing was for certain though, the family vacation. For some it was a dreadful thing but not for my close knit family and me. It meant gettin Continue...

g out of town for a specified amount of time, either all at once in a two to three week period, or several weekend excursions consisting of camping and fishing trips throughout the summer vacation, the latter being a personal favorite. As it is with every summer, there seems never to be enough time to enjoy all the simple things in life. I can still remember the excitement and enthusiasm I shared with my family, especially with my sister. By the time August creeps up on you, you begin to wonder where the summer went. For me, nothing aided in forgetting about school better than sleeping under the stars, reeling in a trophy fish, and breathing the cool crisp air. One thing that can be counted on is the family trip. Between the times of the bell announcing the end of class to the bell pronouncing the beginning a whole other school year, a child enjoys those three months as if they were never-ending. It was the summer right after sixth grade, my family and I went on a one week outing into the mountains.

One particular family trip comes to mind. As the school bell rings announcing the impending school year, it is almost inevitable to begin day dreaming about next summer, about a more efficient way to do all the things you did not have time for. Drawing from many personal experiences as a child I can honestly ask, gee what would it be like to be a kid again . You also begin to wonder what happen to the strategic plan of utilizing your time to enjoy every minute of your much needed vacation.
