So here we are just a few days away from the start of a new school year. A typical project a teacher will have students work on is an essay about their summer vacation. Let’s say Dave and I are your teachers and it’s your first day of school. What would your essay be about? I’ll go first.

I would write about the highlight of my summer, and that was my trip back east to NJ to visit my family. Every aspect of it was wonderful, talking and laughing with my family, all the great east coast boardwalk food, I could go on and on. But the highlight would have to be the way TO AND FROM the Phillies game with my Dad. Sure, the game itself was fun, but my Dad who is normally very quiet and hardly speaks, really opened up and shared with me like never before. That would be what I would write my essay on. Now it’s your turn! – Suzanne Lynn
