Sing a Song

August 1, 2017

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!
