Summer Highlights...One for Mom

Okay, some of you are going to think I'm cruel, but here is my recent summer highlight....the boys sitting on the couch complaining they're bored and there's nothing to do.







More than seven weeks into summer, with less than four weeks to go, I've been waiting for this moment. With all the fun we've managed to pack in including Mr. Biggs and movies and mini golf and the batting cages and trips to Costco and the mall, I thought we'd never be "bored"! Quite frankly, I'm a little exhausted. Shouldn't part of childhood be wrestling with boredom?


With that in mind I've been making Princess Rachel endure more of her brother's activities, like baseball and the batting cages. Not everything is about one person when you're in a family. Buck up, Rachel. Dance lessons will be figured out for fall, which is just around the corner!


In any case, I'm thrilled we finally had some boring moments here and survived them. :=)

I know how it is. We run all around doing fun stuff, then we have a few hours of down time at home (mine spent cleaning) and they are bored and miserable. Funny how things work out. Kayla has been asking about Rachel a lot. We'll have to save our pennies and get out to see you. I blogged again- 2 posts!

Yeah for you! I always tell my kids if they are bored I can always give them a list of chores to do. They usually stop complaining and find something to keep them busy. Can't wait for school to start in 3 weeks!

I remember those days as a kid being bored in the summer. The boys look so funny. Grandma thinks they are so cute. She loved the picture.
