What I did throughout the summer

This summer passed quite fast for me, to be honest but I still did manage to do some pretty fun activities. Many of my friends think that summer vacation is too short and there’s not enough time to do anything during summer vacation. I beg to differ. Here’s what I did this summer.

Camping. This summer, I camped a grand total of 18 days! This included many trips closer to home, like Daisy May Campground, Cottonwood Campground and my Grandma’s piece of land or the “Shack”. A few of my trips though, were quite far, including Edson, Alberta and Goodsoil, Saskatchewan.

Swimming at the Pincher Creek with my family

I also did a lot of swimming, whether I would go down to the creek with friends and family or to Open Swim at the Pincher Creek Pool with friends. It is one of my favorite activities on hot summer days, which this year we had many. After swimming, I might have gone around biking or on my scooter.

In July, I participated in the Southern Alberta Summer Games (SASG) in July. I was on the U-12 soccer team and I participated in 3 on 3 basketball with some of my friends.

As for my job as a reporter, I went to many public events and fun things that were happening in and around Pincher Creek. I reported on the Southern Alberta Summer Games, beach volleyball at Juan Teran Park, the street dance at Central School during rodeo weekend and also the Pincher Creek Parade.

During the end of my summer, I also took a trip to Calgary and a couple trips to Lethbridge. There, I did, yes, back to school shopping. The thing no one ever wants to talk about during the summer. Those back to school commercials, they depress many children they show the reality that summer is soon going to be over.

Even though summer is over, school is coming back and I’m sure all students had a great stretch of summer holidays. I sure did. Summer’s really all just about friends, family and fun. Only ten more months until we get to do it all over again!
