I love summer! The biggest thrill for me is being able to open my windows and hear the birds singing, the lawnmovers, the sprinklers, and children playing in the neighborhood. I also love to hear the crickets at night. I especially love that I don't work in the summer. Being a teacher's aide at a school has lots of advantages! But now it's the middle of summer already. The summer is half gone and I haven't done near all the things I wanted to. I guess, instead, I should say I still have half the summer ahead of me to enjoy and do all that I can. Let's enjoy it while we can!
