Wordless Wednesday: COFT

To counter the rampant iPad addiction in our household I have introduced Compulsory Outdoor Fun Time (COFT).

It has been met with mixed reactions...





At least I've got one who gets into the spirit of it...

LOL! We are so IPAD IPAD IPAD addicted here too. I don't visit often these days as I am trying to cut back my non-work computer time. I do thank you for your prayers and pray for you and your family often. And the ugly post? You are a wonderful woman who is brave and strong and still God is not finished with you yet! God is amazing and he is showing off in his creation of you!

I love this too! Can really relate as far as my eldest boy goes so I had to use cupcake bribes to get him outside yesterday! Worked well for 2x 2 hrs!

Love the one at the screen door, good to see one of them is embracing the outdoors :)

LOL. I can see we will have to introduce "screen time" and limit it in the future... what happened to the good ole days of wanting to and willingly playing outside??? :)

Melissa said...

I grew up in the 70s so my entire childhood was COFT. I cant wait until I can enforce it on my girls.

Tat said...

You've captured the reactions so well ;)

My son has been asking for an iPad, too, but I've been resisting so far. For the moment, if I skip the outdoor fun, I'd have a riot on my hands.

This is good to see. Too much computer time is not good for brain development.
