Really? Already? Wasn't this the same group of kids just counting the seconds until school was out? How do you handle the "Mom, I'm bored" summer blues?

Some people I know write lists of things for the kids to do if their bored.... clean your room, clean the bathroom, read a book, write a letter, write a story, do the dishes, make cookies, pull weeds, etc.

Those are all great ideas, Amy. Clean, clean, clean.. If anything it would deter them from complaining. :o). Are yours bored yet or is it just mine?

It's been super hot here too, Amy. We had such a wonderful spring here, we were spoiled. But, I think the extra hot and humid days makes it more boring since they can't go outside to play. We are thinking about getting a pool.

You should get one, you'd love it.

Well we may have to 'settle' for a small wading pool. Even the little above ground pools at Wal-mart are a bit pricey. :o(...

The one we got is about 6 feet around and maybe 18 inches deep or so.
