Weekend Family Time

A guest post by my friend, Jamerrill, of Holy Spirit-Led Homeschooling, on my other friend Amy’s blog, Raising Arrows, (how is that for a mouth-full?!?) entitled Simple Ways to Reach the Hearts of Our Children came into my world just at the right time.  I was considering an experiment this weekend, and her post really stuck it to me that I needed to go ahead and do it.

What is the experiment you ask?  Welllll, in about 20 minutes, the kids and I will be electronic free until Monday morning.  I gave us all 30 minutes to finish up what we were working on, and then there will be no computers, DS, Wii this weekend and TV will be severely limited (as in only if Daddy has a show that he wants to watch with them.) 

At first there was stunned silence, but then they seemed to warm up to the idea VERY quickly – especially when they heard that this is applying to Mom too  :-)  

So, I’ll see you on Monday morning, and I can’t wait to report how our weekend goes – please pray that God blesses this time that we’re going to focus on one another and on our home.

    I think it's brilliant! I am trying to get a few articles in the "que" – I'm already behind because of the crazy from the last couple of weeks with my grandad and all- determined to get back on track so I can shut back down (how's that for making good sense?!) I love love the idea!

  3. Wow! Apparently if comments come in while I'm on an electronic vacation, I completely miss the comments. Sorry about that guys – thank you very much for your encouragement!

    We had a great time and I'm looking forward to repeating the experience. :)

We finished "Fellowship of the Ring." It took a long time, but the kids understood it, and they enjoyed it...
