(Some summer reflections for teachers and parents.)
back with me to when you were a child. . .
going barefoot in the summer and running wild.
lazy days and sleeping late.
Bible school, bikes, and roller skates.
in the grass, feeling the warm breeze.
Playing with friends and doing as you please.
in the sand, going to the pool.
Eating popsicles, ice cream and watermelon so cool.
lightning bugs, putting them in a jar,
of baseball, kickball, and wishing on a star.
coming to visit, family reunions, too.
Every day brought a new surprise for you.
swinging, laughing so carefree.
Wasn't summer sweet for you and me?
Give your children summer memories so they can say, "Yes, I remember
how I loved summer." one day.
with me down memory lane as I share favorite activities I remember
from my childhood. Many of these projects I did with my own children
or in summer programs in the lab school where I taught.
