I don’t know about you, but as my kids were growing up the most dreaded phrase that I never wanted to hear was “I’m bored.” I always tried to have fun activities and educational tasks for my kids all summer long. But it was inevitable that I would hear that phrase at least once during the summer months and I never grew to like it :).
