Summer Anti-Boredom List

Before summer vacation turns into a boredom fest, sit down
as a family and make a summer anti-boredom list. Write down
a mixture of long overdue chores that youíve been meaning
to get done, along with goals and dreams that youíve always
wanted to accomplish. Donít leave out the fantastic! If
youíve always wanted to ride on a unicorn, even though
there is no such animal, write it down. You may read the
list one day when youíre bored, see the unicorn wish, and
decide to take horseback riding lessons.

With an anti-boredom list displayed prominently on the
refrigerator, fun is just around the corner. Take a look at
my familyís summer anti-boredom list to get an idea. By the
way, can you tell which entries belong to our five-year-old
son?
