        I will always remember the electric anticipation of summer vacations. As July approached, the long, gruelling school term was coming to an end; every day felt like a week, every week a month, but at last the final day would dawn. We would sign each other’s shirts, scrawling immature remarks and rude words over one another. Then we would sprint(全速奔跑) out of the classroomand into the unknown.Reflections from My Childhood(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
   The next morning arrived; no school today, tomorrow, or for weeks! The question loomed; what to do with all this new found freedom? I always pitied my friends whose parents wanted them to do something “constructive,” to learn something new. “I’m learning to relax and enjoy life a little,” I thought to myself.
  And out I would go with the dog for a walk in the morning sunshine. Exploring the woods was always a good start—what weird and wonderful insects would I find? Which ones should I bring home to showmy sister?The dog would generally run off, leading me further into the unfamiliar wood. I got lost a few times, and scared, but the dog always knew the way home.
  After lunch I’d run down to the park to play football with my friends. Jumpers for goal posts, we’d play for hours, collapsing onto the ground only when the sun was setting. Finally time to go home,covered in scratches and mud. That was always a good sign of a good day.
  My parents would ask me what I had “achieved” that day. “I’ve discovered new animals in the wild. I’ve perfected my overhead kick.” I would explain. And maybe I didn’t learn a new instrument, or practice my French, but it had been a brilliant day.
  There is always time for learning next year. The true value of a summer vacation is the freedom it provides, a freedom you never recapture as an adult.Sure you get holidays, but they never pique your enthusiasm like they did as a child. You’ll never get the same satisfaction as you did from climbing the highest tree in the wood, discovering a new insect, or scoring an amazing goal with your friends. So make the most of your summer vacation. Go out and do something different, get lost and challenge yourself, and if you get a little dirty in the process, well, in my book that’s a constructive day.
