Spring break can mean so many different things to so many people! I’m sure for parents with school age children, spring break can be stressful, figuring out what to do with the kids while you’re still working, or having to use vacation time. Or parents look forward to having their kids home for a week and plan lots of fun activities! The teachers are excited for the week off as are their spouses *cough cough, me*. We are thrilled to have our significant others home for a week (or maybe some of you are not thrilled? … haha!) There are the vacationers who can’t wait for some sun and sand, some visits with far away family and friends, or simply a trip away from home. And then there is everyone else… “oh, it’s spring break?” Shopping centres might seem a little busier, and we can expect indoor playgrounds, the children’s museum and other kid centred locations to be very crowded. For my family, we just like to spend quality time together no matter what we get up to. It usually involves some sort of farm chores, lots of relaxing and probably a couple trips to the library. I am sure this will change as the kids grow, then there will be spring break camps and venturing further and further from home on vacations.
I had a lot of fun compiling our current list of top songs for all of you! I had to put some extra thought into it, as spring break is not the same as reading week. The university students already had their week off with what I can assume was a lot of partying. And spring break in the US probably mirrored the same. But we are talking about a Manitoban spring break, meaning children aged 3-18, so not likely the crazy partying the words “spring break” bring to mind. This list is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, no matter what it is that you get up to! Click here to listen to the entire playlist we shared in our iTunes. Or, as I like to do for you, click on each of the songs below to listen to them individually in YouTube!
Have a wonderful spring break! Remember, we are celebrating the arrival of spring! Finally! So no matter where you find yourself, or what you end up getting in to, listen to this awesome spring break playlist and enjoy yourself!
