I still don’t remember how the topic came up… somehow, one of my kids asked me about the Amish and who they were. When I explained the little bit that I know, their response actually shocked me. “That’s cool… I wish we didn’t have all the technology and stuff.” From there, they decided, (completely on their own), to give up screen time every Thursday. This was our first week, and I LOVED it! Not once was I asked for screen time. There were times when the younger ones were bored, and we got to talk about the importance of being bored sometimes. I sure do hope this lasts… we’ll see.
On another note, I spent some time out in the garden with my son, and we got to enjoy several peas, strawberries, and apricots. I’m so thankful the apricots indeed ripened before I left for my trip!
