Today is just another summer day of 2011. This afternoon I have been doing a lot of thinking. I am realizing how much I miss seeing all of my friends in school. They always make me laugh and know how to have a good time when we are together. I am thinking about how much middle school has changed me. I have grown since the first day of sixth grade to the last day of eighth grade. There were many ups and downs. I have made many close friends and even lost a couple. I have managed to keep good grades throughout these past three years. There are so many memories that I will keep forever. Okay, I have done enough talking. I am going to go have some fun with my friends at the beach.
