Maggie refers to today as No-TV-Friday. Yesterday our friend, Adam Hebdon, paid us a visit. He told us about an interesting study with children and TV. According the study, for every hour of TV a child watches their chances of getting Attention Deficient Disorder increase by ten percent. Okay, that's just another reason we have No-TV-Friday. It's actually harder for me to get through Fridays than for the kids.
But rather than focus on what we don't do on Fridays... I am turning it into Field-Trip-Friday. Today we went to the Bird Viewing Preserve. It was fun. I felt like a speed walker coaxing a turtle along. Henry crawls faster than Maggie walks. I try to turn everything into a race, so that we can actually cover some ground. She is a good runner but when she is walking everything becomes a detour. Anyway, we had a nice picnic with the birds... or as Maggie calls it a "nic-nic".
