Fortunately, we're going to have a lot of fun.

Fortunately, we're going to second grade.
Unfortunately, we're going to get a lot more work.
Fortunately, we're a lot smarter.
Unfortunately, it's going to be a new teacher.
Fortunately, the teacher is going to be nice.
Unfortunately, we might not be with all of our friends.
Fortunately, we'll see them at recess.
Unfortunately, they might move.
Fortunately, we'll make new friends.
Unfortunately, the summer is only 3 months.
Fortunately, we can go swimming, sleep late, stay up late, go camping, go to the beach, go traveling, read books, go visiting, play outside, visit with friends, have sleep overs, bicycle, fly a kite, hike, skateboard, surf, and water ski. Summer is amazing, awesome, wonderful, magnificent, superb, glorious, delightful, great, terrific and fun in the sun!
