I’m actually a fan of kids being bored in the summer. I think boredom can stimulate creative thought and is a reminder that most of the time your life is pretty awesome. That being said, I’m no fan of the, “I’m bored… What should I do now?” question. So, I came up with 13 suggestions and posted this note in the kitchen. Early rumblings are that this is a list I would like, not what kids would like. I’ve invited them to add their own thoughts – let’s see where that goes.
I sometimes wish we were a full-time reality tv family. That way I could go back in time to the recording where an agreement was made and replay it for the person who swears up and down that events did not transpire as they did…

“For me, the cold is no problem. I know I have a shorter, stocky body but it conserves my heat and my long legs can move easily through the snow. But in the spring and summer, I can’t stand the bugs. Oh the bugs! Honestly, I’ll run for kilometres to escape the pesky things. Worse than wolves they are.”
Here’s another cool fact about Kate and her kind – she’s unique among the deer family in that both male and females grow antlers. Betcha didn’t know that! She’ll put them to good use foraging for food in the snow and ice and they’re great for giving a friend a back scratch – or so she tells me anyway.
