My bloggy buddy Michael over at In Time... is hosting a blogfest! He wants us to write about what we did on our summer vacation- much like those groan-inducing essays we had to write EVERY.SINGLE.FIRST.DAY.OF.SCHOOL for 12 years. What's one more in the grand scheme of things? Besides, I was so holed up at my house editing, I'm practically a vampire. I want to see what my chaps have been up to!
I've decided to write my essay from the point of view of my 1st Grader. Except with correct spelling and grammar (because I'm sure you don't want to read 300 words of "I ouent to the prk wif my Mommy and Dady and rid my bic and ouent swmmmmg."
Actually I must say, her spelling has improved dramatically in just the first few weeks of school. I'm one proud mama!
What I Did on My Summer Vacation
By Little Monster

My Summer Vacation was so awesome, except I really really missed school. I told my mom this every day. In fact, I asked her every single day when I was going to go back. I think she even may have mentioned how excited she was for me to go back. I'm glad she loves school as much as I do.
I've decided this year that I'm terrified of bugs. Doesn't matter what kind, really. I will run and scream as if I'm being chased by an axe murderer. Silly me. I can't wait for the snow to come.
I was asked to join the competitive gymnastics team in June. I had to practice 12 hours a week! I loved every minute of it and I could tell my mom did too. When she heard my practice was 3 hours a day her eyes lit up. She even dropped me off early and practically sped off while I was halfway out the door. I'm so glad she's so happy for me.
I turned 6 in July this year, which is SO much better than 5. When you're 6, your teeth start falling out and you get money from the tooth fairy. I'm happy I got enough money to buy my own diary! No one knows where my diary is except all the kids in my class, my teacher, my best friend, and my whole neighborhood. Good thing I hid it in my mom and dad's closet so they won't find it.
We went to Chicago on a train for my birthday and it was WONDERFUL! We saw all sorts of things including a HUGE crab, jellyfish and dinosaur bones. My Gamma and Pop-pop came too. They stayed in the same huge hotel, ate out at all the cool restaurants and went to all the museums with us. But I don't know why they didn't get me very many presents...now that I think about it, Mommy and Daddy didn't really get me anything either.
I had a blast with my mom and dad and my friends this summer. I am glad to be back in school and am very excited for the snow to come. In fact, I ask my mom every day when it will come. She's so sweet, she just pats my head and leaves the room for a while. She wants me to have some peace and quiet to help center my chi. She loves me so much.
Welp, that was Little Monster's summer in an nutshell! How was yours? Did you do anything fun?
