Cures for Summer Boredom
School has been out for nine days and the "Mom, I'm bored!" statements have already begun. The first time I heard this said today, the solution was markers and drawing paper. The girls sat and colored for nearly two hours! Later, after lunch, the boredom settled in once again. Again, I offered a simple solution-- bubbles! Who doesn't love bubbles? I had three small bottles stored away for an occasion such as this. We sat out on the back porch blowing, chasing, and popping bubbles for quite awhile. I even let Lucas hold his own bottle, which mainly ended up all over his shirt. But hey, he had fun, right? Later, when Lucas was down for an afternoon nap, the girls were once again bored. This time we pulled out the big guns.
