Yes this is my second blog about back to school, but that’s because…. I love it! It means new beginnings, and new milestones for my kids. Although I get a little sad knowing they are growing up, I have to remember to celebrate with them. Music is a big deal in my house! My family and I blast music all the time. In the car, from the tv, alexa, google, the refrigerator, and our phones. Music sets the vibe and mood for every occasion with us and believe, we have a playlist.
I encourage my kids to listen to all genres of music. My husband and I are fans of hip hop and R&B, preferably 90’s R&B. I also love Pop and Gospel music. Every now and then a country song will come along and make the list, but thats few and far between. AJ is a huge fan of hip hop, while Ashton is a Nickelback fan, and recently since the Lion King remake, Beyonce.🤷🏿♀️
Last year I made a playlist for the boys for Back to School. I wanted them to start the year with fun and positivity. They absolutely loved it! The playlist had music that encouraged confidence, graciousness, perseverance, and kindness. I decided to do it again this year. I’ve listed below our top 5 songs for this school year.
“High Hopes”- Panic! At the Disco
“Be Nice”- Black Eyed Peas (feat. Snoop Dogg)
“Spirit”-Beyonce (From Disney’s “The Lion King”)
“Calm Down”- Taylor Swift
“This Is Me”- Keala Settle & The Greatest Showman Ensemble – The Greatest Showman
Here is our full playlist. Durham Family Playlist
