When I look back on my summers as a child, I never have anything but fond memories.
My mom always worked through the summers. Even though she was a teacher, a few of the teachers did not get the summer off. It would have been great if she could have been home with me, but even though she couldnâ€™t be, she always made my summers special.
For a couple of summers my Grandmother watched me. We would play cards together and she never complained about watching Nick Jr. (yeahâ€¦I was like, 8) or Animal Planet with me. She even had some neighbor kids around my age that had a pool and a tree house. Iâ€™d go over there and play sometimes. But my most favorite thing was playing with her dog, Miss B.
The next few summers, I was able to spend at my momâ€™s school with her. They were not very busy during the summer and I loved being able to play on the computers there. I even made a pretty good friend. Another teacher had a daughter the same age as me and we always had a good time.
There are also plenty of memories of swimming with my BFF, playing outside, going to the park, and my mom fixing us tuna fish sandwiches on Saturdays. I love remembering my summers as a child. I hope that I can make Vivianâ€™s summers just as fun, so that one day she can look back on memories just as fond as mine.
Thank you Alice!
