The important thing about summer is the memories you make. It is true sometimes they aren't always the best of memories. And they might not always be your memories. But the important thing about summer is the memories you make.
     Sarah P. age 11

The important thing about summer is your creativity. You can climb trees in all sorts of ways. You can also become a tight rope walker and go from tree to tree. But the important thing about summer is your creativity.
     Alayna H. age 10

The important thing about summer is vacation. It is true that there is no school. It is also true that the leaves are greener on the trees. You can also have picnics. But the important thing about summer is vacation.
     Harrison S. age 9

The important thing about summer is having fun with your friends. You can do many different things with them like going to the pool. You can also have the over for fun. But the most important thing about summer is having fun with your friends.
     Stephen P. age 8

The important thing about summer is you can swim outside. You can go down the orange slide. And it is a lot of fun. But the important thing about summer is you can swim outside.
     Emily S. age 4

The important thing about summer is that it is hot! Also the sun is shining. The clouds are not covering the sun. It is easy to grow trees and gardens. But the most important thing about summer is that it is hot!
     Rachel I. age 4

The important thing about summer is it's fun. It's true that it's very hot. It's very exciting too. It's sunny a lot too. But the most important thing about summer is it's fun.
     Jared I. age 6

The important thing about summer is it gives you lots of free play time. It's true that it is very hot. Also, summer has no school. Biking is good in the summer. But the most important thing about summer is it gives you lots of free play time.
     Spencer I. age 10

The important thing about summer is family bonding time. It is true that there is no school. It is true that the weather is warm. It is also true that you can make many memories. But the most important thing about summer is family bonding time.
     Alyssa I. age 12

The important thing about summer is just getting out and having FUN!!! It's true that in Utah it is serious fire season (so far we've had 9 wildfires in our state). It's also true that in Utah the temperatures spike up to triple-digits. It's also true that Scout camps last a week and are awesome if they're at Maple Dell up Payson Canyon, because they've got a lake they allow canoing on for fun (hahahaha!!!), but the important thing about summer is just getting out and having fun and enjoying NATURE!!!
