Happy First Day of Summer!

First Day of Summer


Today is the Summer Solstice! It’s the first day of summer. The longest day and shortest night of the year.  I was browsing old pictures and found this cute summer shot of Charlie from 2010! I can’t believe how small she used to be. Time flies way too fast.

In honor of the first day of summer, here are the first ten words I think of when I hear the word summer. This is also a great writing assignment for the kids. Have them expand on these words with a story or why they think of it. Have them write a poem. Or, make up a summer to do list and start crossing things off!

            • Sun
            • Beach
            • Frisbee
            • Lake
            • Sprinklers
            • Zoo
            • Vacation
            • Swimming
            • Watermelon
            • Grilling

I know it’s not too exciting and we’ve already been doing some of this stuff already this year.  What about you? What are you doing this summer?

What words come to mind for you when you think of Summer? Tell me in the comments.
