Today is the first day of the first week of the six weeks school holidays and already I've heard "I'm bored!"
It would.seem that, although the kids look forward to this time off, they get bored quick.
I find myself saying "back in.my day" a lot. I never thought I'd be doing that! But, back when I was a kid we used to go out all day and play on the local common ground.
Today though we seem to have changed. For one, we didn't have all the technology back then in the 70's and 80's. Also though, the world seems a much more dangerous place for kids these days.
Funny enough though, this "I'm bored" is mostly coming from my daughter. Though our son does drag us to the front door from time to time.
The good thing is that I save many of my days off for August so that we can do things. Getting out of the house is important
The school holidays are here. Dread and boredom are upon us. Soon be school term again.
