good bye for a month.

So today is a bitter sweet day. In Church this morning our Bishop challenged our ward to stay away and not use any electronic devices for the entire month of October. That means No T.V. No Computer, No Video Games, No Texting, No Radio, No I -Pod, No Blogging, and to try and not use our cell phones. (only on a need to bases).

So Robert and I made the decision at the moment it was asked of us, that our family would participate in the Bishops month long challenge. It is going to be extremely difficult for me because when the kids get a little out of control, I put on a movie, let them play video games, or let them play games on the computer. When I get a little board I watch a movie to search the net.

So now that I have to be a more hands on Mom and can not rely on electronics help me with my children or my self, it seems a bit scary to me. I never realized how much I have depended and used all of the many thing that we have now been asked to take out of our home.

Yet at the same time I am very excited for this opportunity, this will be a wonderful learning experience for myself and my children. I hope that we will become closer as a family, as we now need to keep each other entertained.

So I should be back in November.

P.S. if you are wanting to see a great movie see this one. It is about the Highland Rugby team from SLC. It is a great movie.
