The kids have only been home two weeks now and already I am hearing "We are bored!" Are you kidding me? Next week my 7 year old will attend a day camp from 8-5pm. I have to say I am secretly looking forward to her having a structured week. Our kids are usually very good at entertaining themselves or each other when we are at home. A few days ago they could not find anything to do. I ran off a list of activities but to no avail. They shot down each and every one. I tried to tell them they should enjoy not having a busy, hectic scheudule. No luck. I tried to tell them enjoy being outside and the fresh air. Finally, side walk chalk and riding bikes won!!!
We used to love being outside when I was young. We would stay out until dinner time or dark on some nights. Kids seem different now. Maybe it's just me or maybe mine are still too young. I sure hope the rest of our summer is not boring for them lol. I am going to make sure we have a great summer full of fun activities. If not, I am signing up for full day camp. For me, not them :-)
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~ John Lubbock
