I did absolutely no work on Mother's Day. Just sat and smiled watching my family play!
So on Saturday we changed our access to the internet. No one can just go on the internet and go wherever they want. Even though we have Safe Eyes, we still felt like we could be more protected. Instead, we decide safe places we can go and they can only go there. So basically everything is blocked except for a small list of places I decided are safe. I feel a lot better about this and the kids are finding tons of places to play games. A lot of online gaming has open chat and that's not good for kids. Especially because half the time the chatting is foul language and who knows what else. We don't have any video game systems in the house. There is nothing wrong with them in of itself, it's just that it kills me to see my kids obsessed with that and doing nothing else. Homeschool is like pulling teeth when we have the systems and they rarely play together. I've tried soooo many times to have game systems and it just seems to mess up the unity my kids have together otherwise. Sigh. I have to admit, I miss my Mario Brothers game. LOL.
