Things to Think/Sing About

This song? Can't get it out of my head. I felt the need to share it because I love it and find it to be the perfect summer song and one the kids will love to sing and dance with me. And I love it so much I fought with YouTube to FINALLY embed a video IN my blog. This was no easy feat. I had to copy the "embed" link spend 20 minutes trying to figure out why the hell it wouldn't paste into the edit window. Paste it into Notepad, then copy and try and spend 5 more minutes, than I hit the Edit HTML tab in blogger and it pasted fine. But then there was a red X so then I did it 3 or 4 more times and hit preview and it was there. That is how much I love this song and needed to share it. Yes, I am a dork. No, you don't need to tell me.

What is your favorite summer song?

It is such a neat time of year. Graduation. We have a number of graduation events going on this weekend and family in town as our niece, Sarah is graduating. She is going to Michigan!

LA's son is graduating, going to Maryland (GO TERPS), and Doug and I had the privilege of going to his Eagle Ceremony last night. I am so glad we were 1) invited 2) found a babysitter and 3) went. It started with everyone standing, the Pledge of Allegiance (who knew I would still know all the words), the Lord's Prayer, and then 50 scouts, of ALL ages saying the Boy Scott pledge. There were speeches, slide shows, candles, TEARS, thank yous, state delegates, and cake. Chris (the Eagle Scout), made what could have been a very long and boring ceremony :) very interesting, funny, and we all learned what a fantastic sense of humor he has about himself and just how great a man he is and will grow to become.

And tonight we start with the first of 5 parties this weekend. I was walking through the weekends schedule with Aubrey and she said, "Mommy, that is TOO many parties". Yup. But it will be fun (read: exhausting).

Also, new post up at Dueling Banjos

And please don't forget the reason for the 3 day weekend! Remember what it takes to be free and those that sacrifice for us all.

Oh Lord ... my wife is obsessed with that song as well. She wants it as a ring tone. I'll have to comply. They must put an addictive chemical in it that makes you crave it fortnightly!!!

I don't listen to country that much - bet very cute song. Regan and I like anything with a beat. I have her hooked on Pink too right now - sad, I know. Bad mommy moment!

That was supposed to be 'but' not bet!
