Summer is a fantastic time of year...but I can't really think of a time of year that isn't great, each season is in its own way. Autumn is cozy and cool with rich, warm colors and crackling leaves. Winter can be nice when you're wrapped in a blanket with a good book and drinking hot chocolate like you can't survive without it. Spring is beautiful because it's after winter, when you've been inside for what seems like forever, and it's when flowers bloom and the world thaws out once again.
And summer? It means little or no school, swimming at my grandpa's house, the cool feeling of air conditioning in the daytime, only one blanket on your bed at nighttime, hazy colors of pinks and greens, re-reading books for the fourth time. This year it will mean going to camp and doing things I've never done before -- stepping outside my comfort zone. I'm excited for this summer
Every year, in preparation for summertime, my mom, sister, and I always make a list of things we want to do. This year, in addition, I thought I'd make one of my own. This is just the start, I'll add to the list as I think of more things. Here it is.
