Teaching the Fundamentals

I am big believer in teaching our kids the fundamentals. This way they have a good basis for learning the more advanced techniques. If they can master the basics then they will be set for whatever comes their way.
I feel that so many things these days are trying to make my kids grow up too fast. Kids don't play with Lincoln logs anymore they skip right to Legos with a Star Wars theme or something. They don't watch Sesame Street, they skip right on to High School Musical.
Well, I am taking steps to combat that!
I am having them start with the 8-bit Nintendo system!

And no better place to start than with our pals Mario and Luigi.And check it out! Sawyer might be a natural! Just look at his face!

Now that is awesome!!! I generally hate video games of all sorts, but I do hold a soft spot in my heart for that old-school Nintendo and Super Mario.

*chuckling* our kids had the once in a lifetime opp. to play wii over Christmas break. Andrew kept saying (about what his favorite part of each day was) "I had the most fun playing the weet!" Sarah Pearson
