This post is part of Works for Me Wednesday at Rocks in my Dryer. Check out Rocks for hundreds of suggestions on how to beat the boredom blues.
Summer in Arizona isn’t my favorite time of year. It is just plain too hot to be outside in the afternoon. My boys play sports in the morning and evening, but the afternoons can drag on as we all lay around in a dehydrated stupor, praying we’ll be awake for someone’s six o’clock game.
The older my kids get, the more fun "bored" games become. We are all Sorry champs and take great pleasure at saying the word sorry in various voices with accents.
Also we do major cleaning of their rooms. This project can go on for many an afternoon. We end up giving away bags and bags of toys, games and clothes. Of course they discover all their oldish new stuff, often times not even opened, and begin to play with that.
It’s Christmas in June I tell you. But then, Christmas anytime, works for me.
