Dealing with "Nuthin' to do."

I hate vacation. I hate spring break. I don't like weekends.
Times when there is "Nuthin to do", the boy drives me nuts. It is so bad that last night on our walk we saw his math teacher and asked him to give our son more work so he wouldn't be bored stiff over vacation. Fortunately, the math teacher understood and was sympathetic enough to put some work up on a website for our son to work on this week.

Put it this way, by the end of the AM yesterday the boy had his paper written, with corrections, and better examples. He then taught a friend how to play Ghostbusters and then watched History Detectives, American Pickers and Pawn Stars. He was still bored. When we told him about the extra assignments in math, he almost danced into the dining room for dinner. He was GLAD to have something more to do.

Now that he has track practice today and tomorrow, we are good to go for the rest of the week. It is great to have him busy with stuff and not have time to think about things that need done or negative past history.

It took a day, but now the boy has plenty to do over the rest of the break!
