Summer Bored Games: WEEK 2

Hello everyone!

We’ve made it through the first week of SBG! In case you missed it, Clara posted the week one challenges here. (You can’t do those challenges any more for points, but feel free to do them for fun!) Now that she’s started everything off, the second post seems quite simple! So, shall we begin?

(For those of you just signing up or if you’d like to review the rules, the introductory post I posted is right here.)

Alrighty then!


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.

And now for the week two challenges! You don’t have to eat any onions this week, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything…  bizarre. *raises eyebrows dramatically* The numbers in bold are how many points you’ll get for the challenges.

  1. So, off the bat, this Summer Bored Games is SOO cool. Here I go: I think this is a really is a really neat thing to do, and that you guys are actually helping people get outside and find their passion, maybe this will even help people create their own blog[It sure made me want to] Now to pass the time I will ask some questions- Who here likes to cook? What are some of your hobby’s you guys? Who here besides me thinks this was a wonderfully, genius Idea ? I will say that these 2 weeks have been some of the most fun weeks of my life; they have got me outside doing photography, writing stories, writing very long 600 word comments, and just simply having fun. I think all your blogs are wonderful, and it is amazing to know you have been doing it for a while – so you have a little bit of experience – they are all also funny and entertaining to read. I am also blessed to see how God has worked in your life, and that you are sharing the gospel through simply writing about your life! Now here is a little bit about me: I am a young girl who loves to sing, play instruments, knit, write, take photos, and I absolutely LOVE to cook and write my penpals. I live in the country, though not on a farm. I enjoy spending time with my siblings, time in God’s Word and learning new things. FUN FACT: Do you know the reason in the Bible that Jesus says East to West instead of North or South? Because the East NEVER meets the West. His Love is ever going, never-ending and all knowing.
    My favorite food is pizza. I mean, who doesn’t love pizza?! Does such a person even exist? I love pizza….My favorite desert is cupcakes and ice-cream. Cupcakes are just so CUTE. Plus, you can decorate them however you want, if you make them yourselves. Ice cream is…well…it’s ice cream! Who doesn’t love ice cream? (Lol, ‘who doesn’t love pizza’^ and now ‘who doesn’t love ice cream’. I’m on a roll people!)
    This has to be the weirdest, most random comment there ever was. I could ramble on forever. And I might have to ‘ramble on forever’ if I want to make 600 words! Right now I’m on 428. *Sigh* Still so many left. Hey! I just filled up a WHOLE, ENTIRE page!
    I’ll now talk about my family. I have one older sister and one younger sister with 2 younger, rapscallion brothers. We spend tons of time together (well, my older sister prefers to be in her room reading or writing….anyone else like her? I know I’m not. I do not enjoy writing, yet I will if I have nothing else to do,, and yet she could (and WOULD!!) write ALL.DAY.LONG if chores – aka my Mom – didn’t call her name. Matter – of – fact, she gets grounded from writing sometimes; if I got grounded from writing I’d be like “WHOOPPEE!!” Anyway…). My lil sis loves playing cars with my brothers and playing with her bunny, Pumpkin. She loves making up stories and scenarios that make people laugh like there’s no tomorrow. My first little brother – Luke – loves dinosaurs, cars, monster trucks, playing outside (and getting filthy) and riding his ‘bike’. (It’s not a real bike, but he calls it his bike. It’s more like a tricycle). Then comes Noah. Noah is our redhead. He loves to just sit and look at a book, and make people laugh. BUT….when Luke comes along yelling at the top of his lungs about something or the other; Noah HAS to join in. Then, there’s 2 yelling, wild boys that wears Mom’s nerves to a frazzle. Oh wow! 632! I need to stop! Although I do have 1 question for Megan- could I possibly make a yummy snack instead of a yummy desert for the contest?WOW-660 words


  2. Wait wrong thing I did; chocolate milk, coconut cream,chia seeds[we keep them in the fridge ]coco,coconut,coconut oil. NOT my favorite snack, but not that bad.
