camping was to play hide-n- seek in the dark. At the time we didn't know it but our parents would take turns coming up to the camp spot to check on us to make sure everything was okay. One night my father came up in the woods to check on us after dark and we were all playing hide-n-seek, that night he scared us to death. We didn't know he was there and jumped out and scared everyone. At the end of the week when all of us boys would come home from camping, our parents would say that we stunk so badly. The first thing they made us do was take a shower

The Beginning 5 and clean up. I remember my mom would make us leave all of our clothes and sleeping bags outside until she had time to wash them. The summer vacation I remember the most was my family went with some family friends to the Outer Banks for a couple of days. We had the best time playing on the beach, making sand castles, a just hanging out with each other. On the way home we thought we were taking a short cut but I think we went thru the Dismal Swamp and around the world to get back home again, at least that is what I thought. But those memories are the best! My mother's parents used to have cookouts when I was younger. I can remember my cousin and us all getting together and having the best time. We would always have hamburgers, hot dog, potato salad and chips, our food settled we would all play baseball together. My grandfather was always the catcher. I don’t recall who had the best time, was it kids or the adults. I can’t forget going to my grandparent’s house and playing with my cousin Rodney. He had the best imagination of anyone I knew, he used to think that he had an imaginary football team of pigs and he had names for all of them. He would even try to get us to play with him. But my brothers and I thought he was crazy! It is said that imagination “plays and important role in the child’s life and children tend to us imagery in thinking more than adults do” (Kosslyn, 2010). So after reading this article I guess that my cousin Rodney was not crazy after all.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
