We bought a Wii today....I can hear the kids and Darrell giggling as they try it out as I type. This was a 10 month process....yes, 10 months! Rewind to last January; Evan had just gone back to first grade after the Christmas holiday. His class had a class show and tell of the Christmas presents that they had received. Evan came home really angry and convinced that he was the only kid that didn't have a Wii. After we addressed his negative attitude, we problem-solved with Evan about how we could buy a Wii. He agreed to save his allowance and we would match what he saved. So, he had to save up for half of a Wii. He met his goal last week and Darrell found a place today that had them in stock! This was a wonderful learning experience for Evan and I'm so proud of him for sticking with it. Great job Evan!!!!! Now I'm going to go play!
