I'm So Glad It's Almost Summer, The Sun Is Gonna Shine On Us (Live @ Home, mp3) Click to play or right click and 'save as' to download.

With the first official day of summer just days away, I thought this would be an appropriate choice for this month.  The kids are out of school, and they have an exciting summer ahead of them.  Do you remember feeling that way?

Now what happens when it's almost summer?  Well, the sun is gonna shine on us...  Not only do kids say the darndest things, they are sometimes quite wise in their innocent observations.  This is another collaboration with my daughter Lexie, who was 4 1/2 years old at the time we wrote this.  She wrote almost all the words, I just added a few connectors here and there to pull it all together.  I'm including the words below:

Lyrics
I'm so glad it's almost summer, the sun is gonna shine on us
I'm so glad it's almost summer, the sun is gonna shine on us
Schools out, scream and shout, nothing to worry about, the sun is gonna shine on us
Grab your suit, your fishin' pole, I'll take you to a swimmin' hole
The sun is gonna shine on us

You can do anything that you want to do
You can be anyone, but I like you the way you are

I'm so glad it's almost summer, the sun is gonna shine on us...

I love you so much, more than you will ever know
I love you so much, more than you will ever know
I love you so much, more than you will ever know
The sun is gonna shine on us, the sun is gonna shine on us
The sun is gonna shine on us

As babies and toddlers, nearly each night at bedtime, I would whisper this phrase into the ears of my two children:  "I love you so much, more than you will ever know." 

To have my daughter send this message back to me in song was quite the gift.  I'll take it.
