Wondering Wednesday – What Did You Do During the Summers as a Kid?

Wondering Wednesday is a new weekly post started by my wonderful blogging friend Jessica over at A Baker’s Perspective. The idea is to give readers a chance to get to know the blogger behind all of the book reviews and other blog posts. I think this is a great idea and I’m glad to be a part of the fun 🙂

Question: What did you do during the summers as a kid?

I grew up in the country with fields all around my parents’ house. We would run around and outside and spent a lot of time back at the creek cray-fishing (yes, I said it. Sorry to everyone who says “crawfish” but that’s what we called them growing up 😉) My family is VERY big into camping. I was not much of a fan of it as a kid and even as an adult I “visit” while they’re camping, but the majority of the time I drive back home to sleep. My family also fished a lot and it was boring to me so I tended to bring a book to read instead. However if they went while we were camping, a lot of the time my grandparents would be at the same time so I would spend the days with my grandma reading and playing Skip-Bo.

(pic is of my nephews in the creek I played in as a kid… except we didn’t have nets. We had to do it all the old fashioned way 😂).


What were YOUR summers like as a kid?

  1. Well, I grew up on a farm, so there was plenty to do, plus we were in 4-H so there were projects to do for that. We did have time to hike down to the bridge and see what critters were around, on into the field for more. No camping, no fishing, no time for even a vacation–except when I was in junior high we drove to the Black Hills!

    • Farm life can be pretty demanding! I have family that farms and know there’s a lot of responsibility that comes with it to make it difficult to get away

  2. I grew up on a farm. I spent many hours outside hiking and exploring. Our neighbors were far away, but sometimes my friends and I on the neighboring farms would get together for the day. We had picnics and rode our bikes or walked through the country We had a creek and I loved walking to he creek and watching he critters.
