First Few Days Without A TV (in pictures)

John and I have both been shocked by the response and feedback that we've received about putting away our television.  John said it best, "you think we told people we were moving to Alaska or cancelling our electricity."  I got several comments here on the blog, I've received calls and texts, facebook messages, and emails.  When I see people, they ask me how it's going.  I've received a couple of "how you holding up without TV" questions.  And it's only been three days.  Even John checked in with me to see how the mornings have been.  

Here's the thing: it's going great and we're still processing it.  

In the meantime, we're having fun.  Daniel is in town, which always makes things more fun.  
Here are a few pictures from our non-TV days:

We're playing hard and sleeping harder.  Fern is becoming more vocal, more wild, and more talkative.  This has been her first time around Daniel where she's not cautious.  For so long, she just wide-eyed watched him and cried if he got too close.  Now, she's chasing him, snuggling him, and showing off in front of him.  It's been cute.

I plan to do a one week recap on the TV thing next week.  Thank you for so much support and interest.  It's been a surprisingly painless and quite refreshing transition.
