E-free days

The E-free challenge was a little harder last week than I expected. Once the novelty wore off and the kids realized this was a regular deal, they weren't very impressed with giving up their favorite entertainments for two whole days each week. Two days is a really long time for those in the single-digit age bracket.

We muddled through, despite some whining and moaning (I swear it was them and not me doing that). Instead of twitchy wii fingers and a couple of choruses of the Dora theme song, we did this:

and this:

and I got this done:

Quite an accomplishment.

And in miscellaneous news from our house, Abby informed me that I have a square butt while hers is round. THANKS Abby.

At least she didn't bring up cellulite. I think.

Ahhh - the folly of youth. It's only round from her perspective!

PS are the two e-free days consecutive? Because that WOULD be tough.

Well done on your acomplishments. Where did you lock the children whilst you were doing all this hard work? :)

I am so pathetic that I forgot immediately about e free night for us.

I must say I love your kitchen. I am impressed that JT took to reading. If Climber had no computer or telly I still think he would play outdoors, build lego or draw rather than read. Maybe I should test it though...

I love it! Your kids will remember this for the rest of their lives. Your kitchen looks so clean!!!!

I found a quote regarding forgiveness and I immediately thought of you. This is what I was trying to say on one of your recent posts.

As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.

Much love from NJ,

You know I am a BIG fan of E-free days having survived an E-free week. Love love love them.

PL took to reading in a big way after our e-free week and really hasn't stopped since.

Great job!
