Who knew that boredom could be "cured" the first week of summer with a quick trip to the library?
I mean, for years now I've been telling my children to...
get a book
pick up a book
read a book
and once they did...
put them down!
because for DAYS my house was soooo
and every time I turned around
I found them sitting in silence
all of the goodness that books can bring
(these are the moments us moms live for)
It was almost too good to be true...
and I wondered what would happen once they finished their books
(we're going back for more, of course)
but I was also curious to see if having
to create their own stories
would bring them just as much enjoyment as reading other people's work
I wondered...what they would do if given just a blank sheet of paper?
Then I remembered...
we had these blank books found a few months ago in the $1 zone of our favorite store
And when released with simple instructions to...
use what you have
ask for what you need
I waited to see if my children
would really be well on the path in their quest to "curing" boredom
once and for all!
