This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
So it seems that most of the children that are a part of our life are back in school now for the start of another academic year. When I was (much) younger, I always liked the start of school. While summer vacation was great, my friends and I eventually grew to miss the structure and extra-curricular activities that school had to offer. Right before the start of school, my mom would take my brother and I to buy a few school clothes, which were jeans, shirts, shoes and sneakers and maybe a pair of dress slacks. I can still remember going to Sears department store in Iowa and walking up and down the aisle of boy’s clothes several times to make sure I got the best that Sears had to offer. I didn’t want to make any mistakes. We also went and bought school supplies…lots of pencils, paper, erasers, pens. I think that is where the similarities to today’s back to school preparations end. Kids today seem to be a lot smarter in almost all area than what we were. More stylish with the school clothes, more technologically advanced with the supplies and just smarter in terms of everyday life. Maybe it’s better schools, the internet…many of the kids we know get homework to do over the Summer and even use computers now versus carrying around textbooks. So enjoy this week’s dance number…a slow ballad by Plugin Stereo featuring Cady Groves, a great example of extremely young, but smart, kids singing a simple little song about young love. Turn your speakers up and have fun with this song. You’ve made it through another week and many of you should be proud that you got your kids back to school safe and sound. Go ahead and do a little dancing. You deserve it. What did you have to do to get your kids ready to go back to school?
