Viva La Vida, #939


Today marks the first official day of Spring Break for my children.  Ahhhhhh……Spring Break!  Those words conjure up memories of trips to Florida to visit my Grandma and Grandpa when I was their age.  Oh, how I looked forward to that magical week.

We traditionally do not travel during this week with our kids, because my husband, being a camp director, is always running a Spring camp.  Instead, my children spend their Spring Break week on field trips…the trampoline park, the zoo, miniature golf, bowling, hiking.

Regardless, it is a carefree week of no homework, no need to make lunches (They’re included on the field trips!!!!) and less stress to get out of the house exactly on time.  The kids may think this Spring Break is for them….but I kindly disagree.  Spring Break is for Mamas, too!

So, my song of the day is the best one I could think of.  “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay really has me thinking about “living the life” this week.  It’s amazing what simple pleasures can be such a relief.  So, enjoy the song as I am giving a big hip hip hooray for Spring Break!!!



About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
