We are a big fan of technology around here.
And we are no where near cutting edge.
Facebook for friends/deals/news (in this order)
Twitter for different deals/news/friends (in this order)
iphone/macbook for me
Itouch/pc for kids to play learning games and reading curriculum
Wii for fun and exersise
Netflix for fun and educational movies/shows
Tivo to sensor kid tv, and to record a few shows for Troy and me.
I'm sure there are more....
It helps our daily life.
The pluses are too long to list.
I know there are negatives, but they are also relative to each person/family.
I'm sure some people have unhealthy additions to technology, but I'm feeling pretty good with our balance. For a stay at home Momma who is homeschooling, and have a little one young enough for 2 naps a day, I LOVE the freedom to stay home in this season but still be connected to the outside world. My kids are not socially deprived. We function fairly well in the real world.
(Plus, it is COLD outside! I don't want to go out there!)
For those of you convicted to cut screen time in your life, please remember that it is a wonderful thing for others. I won't make fun of you for not utilizing Pinterest, or Bible Gateway's many translations, or getting amazing deals shipped to your door for free via bargain blogs. :)
See you on the net or IRL when it gets warmer!
