Sorry…

I am sorry… I promised to update more often.

Instead I have updated less often.

It’s all good.

We are holding our own.

No news is good news.

But, I have LOTS of pictures…

and some thoughts.

I know its time to blog…

when I get emails from people looking

for the low down on our family.

We are busy…

good, kind of busy.

Busy having celebrating birthdays.

Katy is 5 now! Patrick is 4!

Throw in a Christmas and a couple

colds and yeah… we have been busy.

But, not so busy that we don’t still need your love &

prayers…because our little Rock Star is still waiting the

wait…even she is getting a bit impatient.

She is done with that PICC line and who can blame her. 

So I am here… and I will be playing catch up!

In the world of online gaming, not all games are the same quality. There are high end games available that carry an equally high price tag and there are bargain basement games that would put even small children to sleep. Use the advice in this article to separate the wheat from the chaff in the video game world.

Be sure to verify a game's rating prior to letting kids play. Some games contain violent or inappropriate content that is not intended for anyone under 18. Do not let your children play these games or watch while you play. If a game is violent, it can have negative affects on sleep and behavior of young kids.

Computers allow you to play games, too. There are many games that you can get on the Internet, with similar quality also available in a system option.

Try gaming with your kids. This can be a great way to bond with any children in the household and it's fun, as well as safe. You will also have the opportunity to ensure the games your kids play are appropriate for your family.

If you have children, be sure to limit the time that your child spends on video games. More than two hours a day can strain their eyes and interfere with other activities.

In order to understand and guide your child's use of video games, you must be involved. Spend some time playing the game and watching your child play. Ask them questions to show that you are interested. The best experience to have is a hands-on one!

What is your body doing as you play? While sitting at a online game, you might want to use a pillow or other device to support your spine. If you really get into your action games, you might find yourself sitting for hours on end. Try to schedule regular breaks to get up and move around.

There are many types of gaming consoles. There are several factors to consider before you choose which gaming system is right for you. First, find out if one system carries more titles that your child enjoys. Then, check out the memory capacity. Often, you can download additional content, which can quickly overwhelm a wii with a small amount of memory. Your gaming system must have sufficient memory to cover this.

If your child gets a game as a gift or if you are buying a gift, make sure to verify its ESRB rating. These ratings are designed to help you assess whether the game is appropriate for the players it is being bought for. This should be a definite consideration before making the purchase.

If possible, try games out before you buy them at your local library. Most public libraries offer computer games that can be checked out for free. The library usually has game titles for all different systems, so simply call ahead and see if they have the title you want.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Not every computer game out there is worth playing. The main thing you need to understand in order to enjoy your gaming experience is which games are shovelware or otherwise bad games. Apply the ideas from this helpful article and you will be on your way to enjoying your gaming experience to the fullest.
