My Incredible Summer Vacation
Ring! Ring! Ring! The school bell rang. School was over and summer vacation finally started. I sprung out of my seat, and next thing you know I was out of the door. I spent two weeks in Shekou before returning to Indiana. After two weeks, my family and I flew out of Hong Kong back to Indiana. After three days of visiting relatives and shopping, we went to basketball camp.
In basketball camp my team got 2nd place in a 5 on 5 tournament. In 1 on 1 I placed 27th out of 60 teams. On 3 on 3 we placed 8th out of 20 teams. I ended up getting an award for attitude, and I got to shake a famous coaches hand. I also got his signature, which I brought back home. Anyway, after basketball camp my family and I went to our lake house on Lake Wawasee.
The next day, we went knee boarding, wakeboarding, and tubing. I had a splendid time with my family. After a week of pure fun our cousins arrived. They were quite annoying but I dealt with it. Knee boarding is when you kneel on a board and do tricks behind a speedboat. Wakeboarding is when you stand up like skateboarding and do jumps on the wake behind a speedboat. Tubing is when you are in a tube and a speedboat whips you around the wake. That’s basically what I did at the lake.
And after 5 weeks, we flew out of Indiana and landed in Hong Kong. I will never forget this summer vacation. I did some extraordinary things like playing lots of water sports with my relatives, shopping for clothes, and going to a big basketball camp. And that was my summer vacation!
