Swimming, vacations, and sleeping in are just some of the many experiences of summer.

“I played soccer, and I like to play because I like my team, and coach. I also love my friends,” said sixth grader, Ellie Mills.

Another student liked to have time outside, “I love being outside and running around,” said Grace Farnsworth, seventh grader.

Book lovers read a lot, and were excited when new books came out. “I went to the Harry Potter midnight selling, it was awesome. J.K. Rowling came out with a new book,” said Amy Gardenhire, seventh grader.

Vacations are very popular in the summer too, “I went to Vegas,” said Mills. Another trip brought a student close to Mills.

“I went to California, we went to the beach a lot, it was lots of fun,” said Amy Gardenhire. Sometimes you can’t go on trips. “I wish I could have gone a trip, but I still had a good summer,” said Grace Farnsworth, seventh grade student.

According to valuepenguin.com, the average for a trip costs around $581 for a domestic trip, for an international trip it would be around $3,251.
