Today is our 13th day of No TV for the month of June! Wow! Now, I will admit I turned the TV on a couple of nights ago to watch the weather channel as a powerful storm descended on central Mississippi.
Things are going well! The kids have gotten better at entertaining themselves on their own instead of needing me all the time to provide some sort of entertainment for them. They've rediscovered long forgotten toys and the house looks like it did in the days when they were smaller...toys everywhere!
Gavin was gone for a few days to church camp in Dayton, TN. While he was gone I took Ben and Luci to the Children's Museum in Jackson. This was our first visit, even though the museum has been open over a year now. We had a ball and really weren't ready to leave when they made the announcement that they would be closing soon. They really enjoyed them selves and it was a fun way to spend the day. I would love to have a family membership to the Children's Museum, as I can see that it would be a great place to go when we need a break from our regular home school days.
Also while Gavin was gone, I took Ben and Luci to the theater to see Madagascar 3. If your a fan of the first to Madagascar movies, then you'll probably enjoy this one as well. It's the same voices, lots of comedy, and a pretty good message of teamwork, loyalty, and overcoming fears :)
Today Ben and Luci are with our children's pastor doing what she calls "Movies & Missions." This is a weekly thing she is doing with the kids. They gathered this morning to work on cards for the nursing home, then they were heading to see a $1 movie before going to visit and sing songs for the folks at the nursing home.
We are just 17 days from finishing our month of no TV and 7 of those will be spent on vacation :) Finishing this up should be a breeze!
