Now that we are finished up our first week of swimming lessons, we are now on to the next activity. Vacation Bible School. They boys had their first day today. This is Liam's first year that he can participate. They both seemed to have fun. Liam was able to repeat his memory verse tonight. Christian could just read his. Tommorow is when it will be all worth while. I am going to ride the boys down on my bike to church and drop them off and then David is going to meet me at a coffee shop and we are going to go out, alone, no kids. We are really looking forward to it.
Last week, I unplugged the TV set in the living room and put the power cord and remote control up on a book shelf where the boys could not see it. The boys have not watched any TV for almost a week and they don't seem to really miss it. If they need some quiet time, I just put on stories on my iPod for them to listen to. We are talking about moving the TV back to our spare room and making it the TV room. The living room TV is this large, ugly eye sore, so it would be nice to take it away from the living room and then it would take the TV itself from the center of our life.
This summer I am reading Christian Meet the Austins by Madeline L'Engle. It is a nice family story. I think I will wait a couple years to read A Wrinkle in Time. It might be a bit to trippy for a five year old.
