No Technology Sunday #6


Today for our No Technology Sunday activity we went swimming. Seb decided he wanted to wear goggles. Not wanting to take them off,  he wore them in the car to the way to the pool. The suction on the goggles did make for some funny eyes though.



Both boys love swimming but we haven't taken them for a while so Seb was a bit grumpy at first but loved it by the end. Harvey just dives right in. He thinks he can swim and bounces along, kicking and splashing everywhere. But I guess at this moment it is important to just keep up their confidence in the water.

No Technology Sunday 
Technology is such a part of our lives, we take for granted what is right in front of us. Even as I am typing this. I can see my boys in the corner of my eye, entertaining themselves by watching TV. Are we letting technology take over our lives? We are on our phones, looking through Facebook, reading emails, sending texts, while life is passing us by. I admit, technology does make our lives easier but it also takes up a lot of our time, when we could be doing something else more exciting and productive.

I am guilty of being on my phone or laptop when I should be spending more time with the boys. And so No-Tech Sunday was born. It is my photo journal of our day/days of "doing things" sans technology. To spend more quality time with my family. Being more active and having more adventures. 

The Rules
It doesn't have to be a Sunday. It can be any day or days. You can be as strict or flexible as you like. Maybe a day without TV or an afternoon not using your phone, crafts, or cooking.... Just as long as you are enjoying time with friends and loved ones. Or even just you having some "you" time.

It would be great to see how you spend your day(s) on No-Tech Sunday! Each week I will put up a new linky for you to join. Be sure to paste the badge below on your post.

Please share the love. If you do link up it would be great if you can comment on a few of the other links. Also share your link on Twitter, Facebook with the hashtag #NoTechSunday.

  1. Nice blog! I love your idea of no technology Sunday!
    I'm a teacher and am constantly looking for no technology ideas for my students as well.

    I'm just starting out a new project and am offering a free pack of activities to other education enthusiasts. This project is especially about helping children play cooperatively instead of competitively. If you're interested, check out this freebie! xx :) Jordana
