o what do you do in the summer time?

when all the world is green ...

do you campout with friends and pray the rain ends
and play at grandma's house outside?
is that what you do? So do I!
do you play T-ball games, shout Zingers! Hooray!
and play at the beach on a sunny day?

is that what you do? So do I!
do you learn to climb high, spend a day at low tide
accidentally bring home a hermit crab?
is that what you do? So do I!

do you walk a 10K, have a firework display
and spend hot sunny days outside?

is that what you do? So do I!
do you swim in the pool, lessons - so cool!
and ride horses in Idaho?

is that what you do? So do I!

do you find a house to buy, put your house on the market, keep it nice, spic and span
then see the market flatline, try and fail to get a loan
and then finally decide that Heavenly Father doesn't want you to move??
is that what you do? So do I!

O what do you do when the summer's done and it's time to go back to school?
do you remember the fun you had in the sun and wish it could be prolonged?
is that what you do? So do I!!

This has been a GREAT summer and we have had a lot of fun ...
but it's time to go back to school and we're READY!

You are so cute...love that little song...your summer looks like it was fun! Wasn't it so nice to have a clean house though...I am impressed that you still did all those fun things AND kept a clean house! My OCD would've prevented me from having fun!...I would've just been cleaning house!
