Music Monday - "Future's So Bright" - Timbuk 3




For other tales of musical adventure, please visit Soccer Mom in Denial.

I have a bunch of amazing students graduating next week. They're not in the least bit flip like this song, but I do love the summer vibe it brings.

So grads... the piece below is for you. I'm gonna miss you more than I can possibly express here.

And I've no doubt, all your futures are "shades" bright.

Heh, I think I heard this for the first time in an 80's vampire movie with Sean Patrick Flannery. Nice.
Enjoy graduation!

Here's to amazing students, graduation and summer vibes!

Wow, graduating already? Our kids don't get out until almost the end of June.
It's clear you love what you do, and on behalf of your students and students everywhere, thank you!

Thanks, Luisa! I'm sure going to miss these kids, though... sigh...

Wow, Lilac - what movie? Hmmm... I think I'm going to have to google it.

It's just way too fun, isn't it, CG? I'll be reading later - have an insane day today and I'll try to find your new address.

Indeed, Citizen Jane - cheers!

April, this is a home school "school" - 350 kids or so who meet twice a week for co-op classes. Each semester is 12 weeks, and we basically facilitate independent studies, in the sense that we organize the students learning, plan, correct and grade their work, make ourselves available by phone, etc. Now, the school where my son goes is public, and also a different model - that's the one I mentioned to you.

Aw, so sweet! What a gem to dig up and post. I haven't heard that song in ages :)
Happy Graduation week!

They are all great graduates -- and they were lucky to get to work with you!

Enjoy your summer break! Introduce me to the pleasures of mojitos!

PM and Jane - it is a totally fun song!

SMID - I've really loved this group. It's been a special bond. Graduation is actually Monday and I don't know how I'll get through it. The last performance evening was last night and I came home and cried and cried.

Sandy, it's a true song of summer!

You're on, Anno! Come on over - I even have fresh mint growing on the balcony.

Oh, what a wonderful tribute to your students. No doubt, they'll miss you something awful as well. A great teacher is one of life's finest gifts.

Happy graduation all around.
