Summer vacation isn’t here yet, and I have already had to threaten our three boys that I will make them carry a “Complaint Journal.” I am thinking if they have to document how much they complain by “complaint” and “time” it may be an eye opening experience for them.
Conversation ended with me threatening second “Smart A$$ Comment Journal”.
They may need to wear backpacks all summer for all their record keeping.
I know the kids are ready for summer vacation but ARE YOU?

They are really cute! Most people look forward to summer. My son bugs me ever single day of it. How can I look forward to that? Hoping he finds a summer job. Maybe two.
Hoe old is he? My husband and I grew up VERY rural and because of how bored and lonely we were we chose to live in a neighborhood. My older boys I can drop off now at the driving range or pool and that helps a lot!
Good luck! We are still eight weeks away from summer vacation!
Are you in year round school? I would love year round school!
Let me rephrase that….I would love the year round schedule because my husband gets a lot of time off when the kids are in school and it would be nice to be able to travel more in spring and fall.
No, that is the standard school year in Canada. We are in classes right until June 28. Summer vacation is only July and August. In fact some years we are back in class before the Labor Day weekend.
I only had one boy and I dreaded summer vacations–he was bored the first morning! May The Force be with you! 🙂
Mine would live outdoors and when we get into the August “bored of doing the same things for two months” I let them organize a scheduled “water war” with the kids on our street. The planning alone keeps them busy for a few days. And also with you!
I have been thinking about this same thing! On one side, I am excited for summer, and on the other hand, looking at the top picture on your post reminds me of the classic “I’m bored” phrase that will last all summer long.
Trust me I have threatened to make them write an essay of things they can think up to do if they even say, “I’m bored.”
Love the pictures – I see that boys are real fun – a handful but you never know what they’re going to be up to next – and you must struggle hard not to laugh sometimes, I’m sure. Summer is here in all it’s glory in India – thankfully we’re heading off to cooler climes tomorrow – but only for a week. Look forward to catching up on your blog when I get back, Abbie.
Oh, I hope you have a lovely time! I have heard that summers can get very hot in India. Where we live we can drive 50 minutes in the summer up into the mountains and the temperature will drop 20 degrees.
This is why we live in a house on a “Tom Sawyer” pond and creek and with a golf course, pool and tennis court… We have three boys that we need to keep busy. Th complaining they do is why I won’t let them bring one of each type of critter they find to live in our house. They really were mad when I told them they had to stop “digging the cave” because they were about to uproot a full size tree. Thank for wishing me luck!
These kids are adorable!
Thanks! They are good, despite all the trash talking I do about them. Ha ha! The faces they are making in the pictures is because they are sick of getting their picture taken. So they shoot me, “The Look” when they are done. They get that from me. 😉
