I couldn't wait for school to get out for the summer! I think the last few days of school were sheer agony. I've written previously about what I did during the summer in my post 52 Weeks of Sharing Our Memories - Summer Time Fun.
|Here I am with my oldest brother in 1959. I don't think this was taken in the summer, though. |
We're dressed more for fall weather.
Besides playing outside most of the time, I read books. Our local library had a reading program all summer. We could check out at least five books each week. They'd have our names on a piece of paper that would be moved from poster to poster (depending on how many books we'd read) high up on the wall above the books. We could check our progress plus see the progress of our friends. I hated to see that any of my friends were ahead of me.
I've recently been riding my bike again. I've been going down the streets where I used to play as a kid. It sure brought back memories of summer fun, playing outside, and riding bikes!
