For the third summer in a row, we are happily TV free ! We do watch some TV during the winter months because.... well, just because . But it's so easy to be TV free in the summer! The first week or so, I got a lot of "Mama, can we watch...." but now 3 weeks into our summer break, the kids are self-sufficient, self-motivated, and don't miss it at all. I've even talked DS and DH into watching their beloved World Cup matches on streaming video .

Maybe this year we'll be able to keep the TV free momentum strong through the entire year (but I say that every summer too!)
