When I was a child, each year at the end of the last day of term my mum would burst out #singing "School's out for Summer" a #track from #Alice Cooper's fifth #album released in #1972.
Just over a week ago I sang the same song to my son on the last day of term. Similar to the way I looked at my mother, my son looked at me as though there was something wrong with me!
We are now a week into the #summer #holidays and have a good daily routine going which usually starts with some breakfast and then a re-organisation of the toys that were put away the night before. Each day has different #activities but our daily tasks usually end with the watering of the #plants right before bedtime.
Through most of our tasks we sing about what we are doing, or even just sing the task title a few times in a tuneful manner. On the #TV we often join in with the #songs #playing and #sing along when we can.
Most of my #childhood #memories have a song to accompany them, do yours? From a television show #theme-tune to the songs sung around the house by my mother. I expect when our kids are older this will be the case for them too but perhaps I will find a different end of term song for next year!
