Media is not all bad is it???

Beginning of paper town (by Jack) thanks to Mr. Maker (treehouse I think)
Rosetta Stone (French)

Typing Instructor

Craft idea from a show called Mr. Maker!

I have to say out of all the show I have seen for kids/art this guy is great! Samantha and I sat down to watch and he happened to come on and we watched him create out of scissors, podge, paint, glue and tissue paper this really cool town. So right away we set up our own show. Guess what, the boys were right in there (Sara too) Crafts took over and we are still creating!

Media for us is all a balance. Like anyone we overdue it and regret certain decisions, but overall thanks to Vodie Bachams book, Family Driven Faith we are attempting to monitor the media with a certain amount of hours per week and log it. This gives us the ability to assist the kids managing time and choices. I don't always log it, I am too tired for perfection!! But it try!
Media, it is here, what do we do with it and how do we live with it and not let it control and shape us. In his book he gives good perspective and I appreciate his wisdom so much. Not just a book, it is a reference book. I keep going back to it!!!
