Summer Breeze, #958

Lanyards...the perfect camp symbol.

Lanyards…the perfect camp symbol.

I’m looking at the date this morning and reality is kicking in big time.  Memorial Day is exactly 1 month from today, and while that will be a day off for most United States citizens, in my family it marks the day before summer camp starts.  Arizona’s summer begins a few weeks earlier than the rest of the country (ends earlier, too) in order to get children out of school during our hottest months of the year.

I live for summer.  I always did as a child, and none of that has really changed as a grown up either.  That said, summer comes with a crazy and exhausting schedule and an unimaginable amount of work and responsibility.  Of course, I will embrace it, but phew…’s like training for a triathlon.

So, wish me luck as we’re about to climb Mt. Everest as the first hint of the summer breeze is headed our way.

Speaking of which….”Summer Breeze” by Seals and Croft is my song of the day, because summer is almost here!



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!
