Oh, What Do You Do In the Summertime?

I love summer! Jane sat on a log and saw a bee. I love summer! I love bees and grass, and flowers and the sun!

Jim sat next to Jane. I love winter! I love snow and ice and snowmen and snowballs!

Why do you want it to be cold? Its always cold in Scotland. In winter my hands get cold and I have to put on mittens. The snow is white and when the sun is out, it makes me go blind. I dont like winter. Jane rubbed her arms. Just talking about snow made her cold.

I dont like summer. It is so hot and I get thirsty all the time. I dont like bees and flowers are for girls. Jim took a sip of water from his cup. See! Im already thirsty just thinking about summer. I love swimming in the North Sea.

Why dont you two just enjoy spring? Its not summer yet and its not winter any more. I love spring! Janes mom giggled. Jane and Jim ran over to the fence and saw a baby cow.

In summer, the cow will be big, Jane said.

In winter, the cow will be bigger, Jim said.

Lets go in the house now and have some hard boiled eggs, Mom said, so they did.
