Remember the last day of school? Lesson plans abandoned by all. Instead, everyone excitedly discussing plans for summer vacation. Standing on the cusp of two sweet months of unbridled freedom that meant endless bike rides, baseball games, and beaches. Simple joys connected by unspoken promise: Maybe this would be the summer that changed you forever. Sit back and savor the flavor of summer, captured perfectly in this supercut.
