I hope you're all enjoying this summery weekend as much as I am. I'm working on a piece about summertime activities for kids, and I'd love to hear your creative ideas!
Abbott had a school event a couple of nights ago that included beautiful performances of some of my favorite folk songs and spirituals. I've been doing my part to keep these genres of music alive and well; I've sang some of the songs they performed (If I Had a Hammer, If You Miss Me at the Back of the Bus, Swing Low Sweet Chariot) thousands of times to and with my boys. I particularly like this collection of singable songs, to enjoy with or without kids.
