We have never set out to be a non-tv watching family. We have a couple of tv's and we watch movies and occasional tv shows. It's not a priority but there are times when it's nice to sit and veg out. However, as time moves on a lot of us have without intention almost stopped watching any tv. Maddy and Gabby are probably the two who watch the least and will go days without watching anything. What I noticed from this is an intense amount of creativity sparked in them. I've shared a lot of Maddy's recent work and Gabby is no slouch in the art area either. Both girls are most often found in their room, listening to music and either sewing costumes or drawing. I love how much they have learned about art, photography and design just by dedicating their free time to something other than tv.
