Wii Did It!

Aaron did not make the trip to work yesterday, due to winter driving conditions. So we decided to bribe the kids to get their homeschooling done before lunch by offering up a surprise. We bought a Wii for Valentine's Day, but the kids didn't know about it. (Well, technically Ellie knew because she overheard us talking about it. Little turd.)

A snowy Monday turned into a productive school day with plenty of time in the afternoon for playing Wii and playing out in the snow. We capped it off with a pancake/eggs/fried potato supper. It is so fun to be able to change up our day once in a while!

The downside is that everybody is sluggish today because of sore arms and legs from hours of playing. The mean mommy/teacher is still going to make them write and do school. A Wii hangover is not a good excuse!

I remember when we first got our Wii. I was so sore too! It will go away and you will enjoy this fun toy for years to come!

How fun! I remember I was a little disappointed when we broke down and got ours because I didn't want to give in to video games. I must say, I haven't regretted having it! Have fun!
