School's Out for Summer!

School's Out!

 

I still remember the last day of sixth grade. 

 

We struggled through the half-day, getting our end-of-year report cards, and waiting with anxiety for the summer to start! 

 

Finally, our teacher smilingly said “You can go now!” and a bunch of boys went screaming out of the classroom, while the teachers laughed. 

My friends and I left more slowly because my mother was picking us up. No school bus for a change! Hooray! 

Almost as soon as we got in the station wagon, we turned the radio on and Alice Cooper started singing “School’s Out”! 

 

 

We started singing along and then rolled down the windows of the car and shouted the lyrics out the window at all the drivers of the other cars! 

 

Some of them smiled back at us, probably wishing they had the summer off, too. 

 

Ah, youth. 

Summer! When you are 11, it is a magic word. Barbecues, beach trips, and best of all, no school! 

 

Yes, it was magic.

10 Things I Love About Summer


I Love Summer

 
I love making lists. 
 
Here are 10 things I love about the summer:

  1. The skies don't get dark until almost 9 P.M. (my absolutely favorite part of summer besides the warmth of the sun).
  2. Drinking unsweetened iced tea.
  3. Drinking Starbucks Mocha or Caramel Light Frappacinos  -- too much sugar and fat, I know, but it's like eating dessert with your coffee.
  4. Swimming in a pool (not lakes or oceans), especially underwater. I even love the smell of the chlorine.
  5. Barbecues and picnics. I love picnic foods: potato salad, burgers, almost anything grilled.
  6. Fresh veggies and fruits (I hate frozen or canned). Making salads with the veggies. Making smoothies with the fruits.
  7. You can open the moon-roof in the car.
  8. Eating outdoors at sidewalk cafes.
  9. Sitting (and dreaming) on front porches.
  10. The original scent of  Coppertone.
 
What are YOUR favorite things about summer? 
 
I'm talking about normal, everyday things.
