Television Free Summer?

Does anyone live in a television free home?

This is something I’m really considering and really trying to convince my husband to get on board with or at least think about the possibility of maybe doing without it for the entire summer. Stowing it away in the garage and reevaluating at summers end.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been MIA for the last month or so. Not even really sure why but in that time I suddenly want to buy land and add a little more simple to our lives. Less distractions, more time for family, for discovering, for learning together and making lasting memories. Now the land might not be a possibility right away but I know that adding a bit of simpleness to our lives is something we can achieve right now.

Anyways let me know if you’ve tried a T.V. free life? We will have to keep our computer to continue living in the world today (and I would never be able to convince my husband otherwise) and I would love for my kids to still be able to watch the educational shows that they love such as The Magic School Bus (love it)!!

Also I have thought about just turning the t.v off at night. Really don’t watch much at all while kids are awake but at night is when I catch up on my shows and I really feel like lately my time is completely wasted on this. Although I do love my shows!;)

What do you guys think? Have you done this or thought about it? Would live to hear some input.
