When I think back to when I was a kid, I remember that the days of summer seemed to go on forever. In those days, there were endless adventures lurking around every corner. Eventually, the joys of the endless summer would gave way when every imaginable adventure had been had and the days would grow long with idle boredom.
Soon school would begin and bring its own adventure. To me the beginning of the school year always meant that the countdown to the next summer had already begun!
