“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy”, goes the song made famous by Ella
Fitzgerald. And it will be because the kids are going to sleepover camp!!! My house
will remain clean and quiet; a zen-filled sanctuary to practice my abysmal yoga,
read a book and drive myself without listening to Harry Potter, again. The kids are
like mini-dementors sucking the soul out. I’m going to take my slice of the pie. To
start out my 3 weeks of spicy meals, chick flicks and going to a kid-free fitness
center. This is the best vacation!
I’m having my kids let you know what they think about summer vacation:
Summer reading is really a sneaky way teachers are making us work over the
summer. Summer is supposed to be “chill”. Chores are boring. Chores are more
work. Playing is fun! Screen time is fun! The best part of summer is the bonfire
roasting marshmallows and making smores. I like to ride my bike and have stick
duels with my brother. I can climb trees and record it with my friends and his go-
pro. I can’t wait to go to camp. It’s the best food in the entire world. They also
make stuff called bug juice. Awesome sweetness. We play a card game called
poo-head during quiet time. I sleep so good after a day of playing capture the
flag! This is the best vacation!
Have a great summer!
