Can I just say how much I love our new Wii? Thank you Jim and Carol! I think the family favorite so far is Bowling. Emily is putting us all to shame. She got 4 strikes in a row and her high score is 177! I think that is part of what makes it so fun; Daddy and Mommy aren't necessarily any better than the kids. Also, we don't have to battle the crowds at the bowling alley, and we can bowl in our pjs. :-) Even Andrew loves to play Boxing.
As an added bonus, it is a great motivator. This morning, I didn't have to tell Nathaniel to do his chores. He quickly got them done without complaint (even piano practice!) so that he could play Wii.
Good news--Daniel is doing much better. Michael isn't feeling too great, unfortunately. We were able to go to the YMCA yesterday to do the same thing I had planned last week. I took the boys to the indoor baby pool, and then I took them to Childwatch so I could play tennis. :-)
