I am officially vowing to be more bored! And encourage my children to be more bored. If you just give yourself time. REAL time, quite, still, muted time your creative mind takes over and you begin contemplating things that matter, OR don't but are really fun.

Memorial Day Weekend

The beginning of summer in my house. I've decided that this summer will not be full of scheduled activities. I don't remember going to a bunch of camps, classes, rehearsals, practices from June until September. I went to one, sometimes two, weeks of summer camp at Camp Cheerio in NC. (LOVE IT By the way!!!) Other than that I made skateboard obstacle courses, tried to invent a new cookie recipe with my friend Juice, visited my neighbors, had picnics in the pulp mill pasture, and explored... I think that's the way to go this year. I actually think the kids will like it better too!
