What's on your summer schedule?

Summer is just around the corner. In fact, it's already started for some of you who have finished up the school year. So what's on your summer calendar? Is your family planning to take a vacation? Do you have a summer job lined up, or are you looking forward to just hanging around the house?

Here's a chance to tell us how you'll be spending the next few months.

    I'm Going to Dance with my dance school La Dance at Disney. This is very big for me. I'm very nervous because I'm not a really good dancer and people have told me that too. But at Disney I'm going to put my all and prove them wrong. Also I'm looking forward to my moms baby shower!!!

    Well, this summer is going to be great. I'm participating in a summer theatre program called iTheatrics. It's basically for people who are interested in a career, possibly, in acting. There's lots of dancing and singing. It's hard work but very rewarding. This summer, I'm also joining my school's marching band. I play the mellophone, which is essentially a trumpet but bigger. It's for french hornists in a marching band. The only thing i won't enjoy is the RUNNING...UGH!!!!!

      Oh really?! I love running. It makes me happy and forget your worries. Why don't you try running if you feel distressed next time? You'll get what I mean. Maybe you'll get to enjoy running too!! Good luck with all the stuffs you'll do in summer!!

    This summer I plan on doing multiple different things. I'm going to the Junior Olympics June 9, 2012. After that, i'm going to start weight training for high school football this fall. I will be continuing with that the entire summer. I'm going to be working a summer job at a ranch also. I plan on spending time with my friends and my girlfriend. I want to go fishing and hiking this summer too. i am also going to be attending sports camps this summer for football and basketball. I'm also going to play in Spokane Hoopfest.

    I'm going to move to Washington D.C. and then visit North Carolina and all my friends there. Also I'm visiting my friend in Florida while we're moving to our new house. Then after all of that I'm visiting my relatives in New England. Between that, I'm going to live on a dorm with roommates for a week at Harvard because I was accepted into a program for kids 10+ I think. There are lots of different places to go in that program like Paris, England, Washington D.C., and many more. My mother and I chose Harvard so I will have roommates in a dorm and get tours of Harvard and peek into some of the classes. Lastly, I'll enjoy all of it!
