School is officially out and it's time to congratulate all those high school and college graduates and, of course, all those students who completed another year of education.
Let the fun begin.
Children, young people and families all over central Carroll have made some fascinating plans for this summer.
If you and your family are still in the scratching-the-head stage over what to do, listen to some of these plans students have made for their summer vacations.
Westminster High School sophomore Nate Wahlgren has a full summer planned with trips, work and camp.
"I'll be going to band practice throughout the summer and then to band camp for two weeks in August," Nate said. "I am going to continue to umpire for Roaring Run baseball and I'll be taking a family vacation to Nags Head, [N.C.]."
The 15-year-old Finksburg resident also will take a trip to see the mountains of Central Virginia and will go to Boy Scout camp.
For St. John Catholic School sixth-grader Tess Fisher, the summer will be centered on athletic activities.
"I am looking forward to playing soccer at Deer Park and going swimming in my pool," said the 11-year-old. "I'll be going to Ocean City with my family, too. When I'm there, I like to swim in the ocean and play miniature golf."
Nikia Sayre, 7, is excited about her trip to Delaware.
"I can't wait to go to Bethany Beach," she said. "It will be so much fun. I'm also going to go to camp this summer and take swimming lessons."
Her brother, 12-year-old J. W. Sayre, will go to the beach like his sister, but he has a few other plans.
"I'm going to go to pool parties, go swimming in my pool, go to movies, play miniature golf, have sleep overs, go to the 4-H Fair, do some summer jobs and go to the carnivals," he said.
Ten-year-old Scott Woycio will head south this summer for two reasons. "I can't wait to go to Florida to go to the beach and swim in my grandmother's pool. I also want to go to the mall and buy stuff," he said.
Before the summer is over, Scott said, his family will be making a move to Memphis, Tenn.
For 14-year-old Allen Cross, his summer will be "somewhat busy."
"I will be going to Ocean City with my family and I will be going camping somewhere in Pennsylvania," he said. "I will also be teaching piano and general music at Carroll Community College and I'll be doing lots of swimming in my pool."
And finally, 7-year-old Tyler Marchand reported a list of activities that will require his full attention this summer.
"Well, I'm going to go to camp at St. John's and then to Ocean City for two weeks with my family," he said. "I'll swim and stuff, take walks, ride my bike, walk on the boardwalk, play with my LTC friends and make some new friends."
