Quite a few Christian family groups have been advertising in the last couple months that August was deemed to be "turn off the TV month." They are challenging people to go one full month without a TV on. A few weeks agoI had mentioned the idea to Dan and he didn't seem too interested in it. Well, the day before yesterday he told me that he thought we should take part in the whole thing.
So, today was our first day without any TV (we are also not allowing any computer games or video games). The kids got out a charades game and we played that for a little while. Dan has listened to the baseball game a bit on the radio. I am interested to see how this month turns out as the TV has turned into more of a centerpiece in our lives then I think it should be. I will report back periodicially as to how things are going.
