AVERY!

CONGRATULATIONS, AVERY! Woohoo! Again, we’ll email you here soon about your $20 gift card to Amazon or Etsy! 🙂

Now let’s look at some photos from our awesome participants! Thank you all so very much for sending us your photos – we loved seeing them, and we hope you’ll enjoy them too. 😀

We’ll start of with this amazing car drawing by Rosy, using what I think might be pesos (? sorry if I’m wrong) as wheels!!!!

Hmm, hotdog with grape jelly? Not my idea of a perfect meal, but according to Fiona it wasn’t too bad!

Now look at Sara’s happy little bee that she put on the ceiling! Whoever noticed that first probably had a smile on their face too!

Next is Avery, just having some fun coloring!


Mmmm, those look tasty, Sara!

Impressive Self Portrait, Laura! I don’t know exactly what you look like, but I sure have a better idea now! 😉 Jk, but that is really good for what I could have done!

Laura taped this funny little face to a door nob in her house! I want to know the reaction when someone first saw this! XD

Thank you again for those fun photos! Since we four hosts split up our favorite pictures between our blogs, be sure to check out Clara’s post, Allison’s post, and Megan’s post for more awesome SBG photos.

Last but not least, some feedback from YOU! Here are a few of your favorite SBG memories and “testimonials.” 🙂

This is the kind of stuff we LOVE to hear from all of you! I’m so glad that you all had a blast!!! Please come back next year for this!!!!

Also, remember how Clara, Megan, and I were competing with each other last week to see how many challenges they could get? Well, of the three, guess who won?

At third place is…..

CLARA with 20 points!

In second place is….

K.A with 176 points!

And in first place is….

MEGAN WITH AN AMAZING 186 points!!!!!
WHOOO HOOOO! Make sure to head to her blog to tell her congrats! 😉

We all gave it our best effort, and it helped me feel some of the craziness that y’all feel!!! Thanks for doing SBG y’all!

BYYYEEEEEE!

Summer Bored Games!!! (Week One)

HI EVERYONE!!!!!!!!

I’m SOOO excited for SBG this year!!! As you’re reading this post I am on my way to a mission trip in Mexico(!!!!), so I’m sorry if I don’t reply to comments for a while. These challenges all look A-MAZ-ING!!!!!!

Please let me know down below which ones sound like the most (and least 😛 ) fun and which ones you enjoyed the most!!! I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!

Make sure to look for the next post on Clara’s blog HERE on July 8th!

You have until the end of this week to complete however many of the 35 challenges below you wish to do. This is the only week that you’ll be able to complete these challenges.

When you’ve completed all the challenges you’d like to for the week, submit your points using the survey included in this post (see it below). Please try to submit your results just once per week. I suggest waiting until the end of the week to submit the survey.

Without further ado……

Here are the CHALLENGES!!!!

(Remember, the number at the end of each challenge is the number of points you’ll earn for that challenge. 🙂 )
