The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

W is for Wii Fit Plus

I'm currently participating in 
an ABC's for homeschooling challenge.  
Since it falls on Tuesdays, 
I am adding a technological slant to the challenge.  
I hope you stay tuned and enjoy my entries.

Wii Fit Plus

In other post(s), I've discussed how I used the Wii Fit from Nintendo to lose weight.  Today, I want to show how my kids use it.

I love Wii Fit Plus.  It is a fun way to exercise.  The kids love to watch each other play.  It is better than comparing each other.  They get to challenge their past goals.

Wii Fit Plus has the added advantage of testing your mental abilities.  I can't think as fast as my son, but he usually does a wonderful job.

My younger son always scores higher than his age.  Perhaps it's because he has the wiggles; after all, he is my hyper child.  My kids get to see if their weight is on target with the BMI calculator.  Sometimes, they figure they need to eat a little more.  Of course, I have to eat less and exercise more to get on the right track.

The Wii Fit Plus is a welcome addition to our home school.  It helps us have fun while playing it.  It is entertaining and healthy.  It helps us monitor our progress as it saves our scores and tests.  In fact, Wii Fit helped me lose the thirty pounds I lost a while back.
Well, thanks for viewing this blog entry about Wii Fit Plus and how I have used it as informal PE in our home school.

Next week, I hope to cover the letter Y.  
Please stay tuned!

How about you, my readers?  Do your own Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus?  If so, do you allow your children to play it?  I think it's a wonderful way to incorporate physical education in the home school.  I believe in finding technological tools to help in the home school. 

I pray that God gives you all, my beloveds, His wisdom and peace.
This has been an entry for the Technology Tuesdays series.
