The summer of 2020 (a child’s perspective)

“Every summer has a story.” This is going to be especially true for the summer of 2020. Hi, I’m Remy Harding and I’m 12 years old. I love summer so much and am wondering how different it’s going to be this year because of Coronavirus.

One of my favorite activities during the summer is riding my bike with my family to Huntington Beach. All 5 of us ride in a straight line like ducks and we wear helmets. When we get to Huntington, Honey Hut is our first stop. My favorite ice cream to order is chocolate with chunks of peanut butter. Sometimes they are so big, they are more like slabs of heaven. Nothing beats chocolate ice cream on a hot summer night.

Another thing I love to do during the summer is swim. I love to swim because it’s refreshing and is a great activity when it’s hot outside. I am on a swim team and it’s so much fun. The only thing I don't care for is having to jump in a cold pool early in the morning. Otherwise, swimming is right up there with ice cream. 

This summer I hope to start babysitting some of the neighborhood children. Even though the summer of 2020 is going to be very different we’ll be able to tell people what it was like and how we still had wholesome fun.
