May There Always Be Sunshine

This is one of my favorite pictures of Kate.  She was about 9 months old.  She seems to be truly basking in the sunshine.
It reminds me of an old newpaper cartoon called Hi and Lois.
One of the characters is a freckled, blonde baby called Trixie who loves talking to Sunbeam, a ray of sunshine.  Kate looks like she might have something to say to Sunbeam.

May There Always Be Sunshine!

May there always be sunshine.
May there always be blue skies.
May there always be children.
May there always be you.

May there always be stories.
May there always be music.
May there always be teachers
to care for you!

May there always be sunshine.
May there always be blue skies.
May there always be children
as special as you.

by Dr. Jean  

This is a class book made by a Mrs. Bailey's kindergarten in California.   Here are their favorite things.

(Notice the pictures. The kids are signing the words.)

May there always be a person princess by the sea.

We always need Star Wars spaceships.

Don't forget friend Kate!

And of course we need Superman!
