John-Heath giving me his best sad face
This week, April 19 - 25 is being promoted as National TV Turn Off Week by TV Turnoff Network. The goal, and a very admirable one at that, is to "show parents and children that watching t.v. doesn't have to be a daily activity." Actually, I feel somewhat ashamed. I, a school librarian, only realized this today. So, I am already in the hole for the week. But I am determined to finish out the week - at least the school week - and be the better person for it.
As I posted on my school blog there are three great reasons for less t.v. in one's life. You'll...
- Become more physically fit
- Become more intelligent
- Become a nicer person
We'll see how it goes. Ren may actually be the easier of the two in getting to go along with this. John-Heath can be mighty persistent and he has to have him some Andy Griffith Show most every night.
