James received a Wii for his birthday this summer. It's our very first gaming system (just in time for the older kids to leave home for college!). So far, Hannah is the toughest competitor. She is outrageously successful at Wii bowling, and puts on a good show with golf. Baseball and tennis are a little trickier, but she's getting better at them. She plays about two or three times a month, so it's not as if she's getting lots of practice! We're talking
Today our neighbor boys came over to visit. Wii is a good way to even the playing field for Hannah. She doesn't have to run fast, or figure out invented rules to backyard games. It's active, but it's not exhausting for her. And, of course, she frequently wins.
I guess that's not exactly leveling the playing field. But she does play fair and square!
