We've never really done the video game thing at our house (Wii, Playstation, etc). We don't have anything against it, really. We just would rather our kids do other things, and haven't wanted to spend the money on it.
We have friends who own a Wii, so we're pretty used to playing that, but just not at home. I'm sure that since my 9-yr old (almost 10) is getting older, though, it won't be long before we get some type of game system since he's been asking for one lately & has been saving up his money.
This past week, though, we came across the Wonderzone.com website, and he's been enjoying that. It's the children's website for Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) and is full of games, activities, Bible stories (even Bible trivia), etc. He loves it!
I'm a Christian stay at home mom to my three boys & a baby girl, trying to balance family life, homeschooling, and all the little things that go along with caring for my family and my home, while serving the Lord.
I don't want to be a tightwad or a spendthrift. I want to be smart. I want to celebrate life, to surround myself with beauty, and to be content in whatever state I am in. I want to manage my finances, to organize my routine, and to use my possessions wisely. I want to budget resources and time, to help others, and to bring glory to God. --- by Cynthia Yates
