A Jamaican Child's Summer
by Renee Morris
Growing up as a active child in a tropical country like Jamaica was a whole a lot of fun for me.
Whenever it's summer, I went to the country (rural)to spend the holiday with my grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts and of course my other siblings.
Whenever I woke up in the mornings, the first thing I would normally do is say my morning prayer giving the lord thanks and praise for waking me up.
Then I would tell everyone good morning, go to the bathroom to freshen up myself then I would have my breakfast. Then off I would go for the whole day just enjoying my summer :-)
Normally I would go to the river with my cousins, my brothers and sisters to swim or we would just tour the river stream meaning we would walk out the whole river stream from top to bottom or we'll just catch fishes and play water war.
Followed by that we would went back to the house to have our lunch then off we go again to play games such as: dandy shandy, benn dung stucky and hop scotch!
I miss those days :-(
