Oh, What Do You Do In The Summertime?

Oh, what do you do in the summertime
When all the world is green?


Do you feed ducks in a stream
Or lazily dream by a friend
Watching clouds go by?
***
Do you swim in a pool,
Act too cool for school,
Or swing on a swing up high?
***
Do you play at the park,
Stay up until dark,
Or count all the stars in the sky?
***
Do you sit near the smoke,
Roasting food that you poke,
Or try to catch Fireflies?
***
Do you read books inside,
On a horse have a ride,
Or dress like a butterfly?
***
Do you go to the sea,
Get stung by a bee
Or catch bubbles that float up high?
***
Is that what you do? So do I!
* Changes in lyrics made by me to fit our summer happenings. Each line has a corresponding picture. I hope your summer is filled with a lot of fun things.
** I decided not to include some of the things we do that we could not post appropriate rhymes -- for short example "Grow gardens of grass... " I figured we has enough pictures already. :)

I love the pictures! This post reminded me to get out and enjoy the summer. Before I know it, it will be cold again, and we'll be locked up by the fireplace!
