About 3 weeks ago we had our television service put on hold. The children were behaving like hooligans and needed a bit of an attitude adjustment. Not having television has made them rely on their own ingenuity for entertainment. They have made all sorts of games up this week. I have seen pillows and a balloon become a unique version of ping pong in our living room. One day they spent the afternoon launching paper airplanes from the upstairs window into the yard. Earlier in the week they spent the day building a castle out of cardboard boxes. Initially I said the television would be gone for a month but I really think that they are more active and happier without it. They just don't realize this yet.
