T minus one day and counting

The countdown continues for T as he is gearing up for his LAST CPA EXAM SECTION EVER (we hope) on Saturday. Woohoo!

On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, did you know this (I bet you didn’t)?:

In Korea, 51.6% of 3- to 5- year old children use the Internet (The National Internet Development Agency of Korea, 2007).  The survey shows that, on average, 4.3 hours per week are spent on the Internet among children aged between 3 and 5 while children start using the Internet at age 3.2.

What happened to books and Tinker Toys and Etch-a-Sketch and Spirograph (I lllllooooovvvee Spirograph and Lite Brite (oh, I love that, too!) and coloring?  What happened to playing outside or riding a bike?  Am I just a bitter, old-fashioned technophobe?  What do you think about this?  And do you have overwhelming pity for my poor son who will be forced to play with only a pencil and a piece of paper during his formative years?

 

 

 Poor Miles.

    And Lincoln Logs that came in a container shaped like the oatmeal container. I loved Lite Brite too, btw. I didn’t even see a computer until I was in the double digits, and it hasn’t hurt me any. Miles will have a ton of fun with his pencil and paper! And how about bugs and weeds in a jar w/ holes poked in the top? That used to entertain us for hours. Very educational.
