Mom, I’m bored!

That must mean summertime is officially here.  I am worried about hearing these dreaded words way to many times this summer.  With us being in a new state, and not having any kids near us, I figured I better have some ideas lined up for those “down” days.  So far I have come up with forty-two activities for my son to choose from throughout the summer.  I’m sure we won’t get around to doing all of these, but It will be nice to have list on hand to help us out when we can’t think of anything to do.
