ok the kids have been watching WAAY to much tv. So we are now on two weeks of absolutely no tv. Any news we need we can hear on the radio or read online. So far its great! They played last night just rough housing with each other and this morning they played a board game before it was time to get started on chores. they hated missing Little House last night but ya gotta have some consequences for not listening! I think that after the 2 weeks are up I'll let them watch Little house at night and that's it. Its kinda nice not hearing that thing blaring all the time.
