I Spy Shade

And just in time too!  It is really starting to heat up!  My kids love to sit under this maple tree on a breezy summer afternoon.  They bring out little chairs or a blanket and snacks, drawing supplies, reading materials, no name it.  They love it!  I think it’s what summer is all about.

You know what might be nice?  Some music to go with…

Also I am making a little wish today on a dandelion clock that all little kids have a shady spot to enjoy this summer!

Where’s your favorite shady spot?  Please share!

  1. Under the shady tree! I love Laurie Berkner! I say me, because I jam to the music in the car. The kids roll their eyes. Grayson will jam with me as well.

    I love that song, under the shady tree.

    My shady spot? In my house in air conditioning!

    Haha! Sad but true.

    Thanks for this excellent post!

    Off to listen to some Laurie Berkner!

    • She’s fun! That’s where we listen to music too, in the car.
      I am not going to lie, I like my AC too : )
