3. What's your favorite season? Why? -- spring. It has the best weather in Oklahom (tornadoes aside) and just has a bright feeling.

Yes.  We belonged to a private swim club and literally spent every single day there, My siblings and I were on their swim team too.  I remember VBS and church carnivals too.  Probably Spring, I look forward to planting flowers and seeing flowers bloom again.  Hot fun in the Summertime.  I can't think of  a movie with that word in it.

1.  Does it feel like summer where you are? Mostly.  It's been cooler and rainier than usual though.

2. What did you do on summer breaks when you were a kid?  Mostly hung around the house.  I usually went to my grandma's house for a week to go to Vacation Bible School and for a week to 4-H camp.  We usually went on vacation somewhere every summer.

3. What's your favorite season? Why? Summer.  I like the hot weather, and everything feels more relaxed.

4. Name a song with "summer" in the title. Summertime

5. Name a movie with "summer" in the title. I can't think of one, but I have watched a German movie called "Im Juli" (In July).

Does it feel like summer where you are?

Not quite..it's finally a bit warm, the kid just finished school last night, it never really feels like summer until the 4th of July. I haven't been swimming or to the beach once.

2. What did you do on summer breaks when you were a kid? I grew up on an island so I spent days roaming around, and alot of time at the local country club pool.. I was very shy and resisted any attempts on my parents part to send me to any camps until I finally went to a theater camp in 4th grade.

3. What's your favorite season? Why? I used to always say there was nothing like autumn in new england and in many ways it's still my fave- but the older I get the more I love summer best.. my beaches await!

4. Name a song with "summer" in the title. Summer Lovin from Grease

5. Name a movie with "summer" in the title. 500 days of Summer (mmmm Zoey Deschanel)

This is what my people do for solstice, go to the beach, light a bonfire with a witch on it, have someone make the "bonfire speech," sing songs and drink. In the old days, any child born 9 months after solstice was considered legitimate, even if mom was single.

1. Yes.  The lovely part of summer when evenings are cool (ish) and daytime temps stay in the very low 80s on the warmest days.  Sadly that's about to end on Sunday.  And the new AC until will not be installed until next Friday.  I may cave and buy a window AC unit to tide me over.

2.  Took over the neighbor boy's paper route.  Went to sleep away Girl Scout camp.  Usually went camping at least twice with my family--my favorite places to camp were White Pines State Park and Starved Rock State Park (both in IL and not terribly far from home, but lovely).  But we often went as far afield as Wisconsin, Michigan and Missouri :D

3. Spring and the early bit of summer when the temps are glorious like they've been the past few weeks.

4. Summer Lovin'

5. No. ;P
