Now that school is over

And summertime’s begun,

I’m simply brimming over

With plans for summer fun.

I’m going to play and swim a lot

And work with crafts a bit

And help with caring for the yard

And also baby-sit.

I’ll take my brothers fishing,

And then we’ll all go to the zoo.

And when my family goes on trips,

Of course I will go too!

I just know that summertime

Won’t be long enough for me,

Because there’s lots I want to do

And learn about and see.
