The iPad is a Hit!

Since Steve was given his iPad, it has had a permanent spot in his lap once he gets home from work. He has enjoyed playing with it and downloading various apps. However, it wasn't until last night when we had some friends over that things took a turn.

While we were watching football with friends, a few of the folks let the little ones use their iphones to play games. Bennett was hooked, so Steve downloaded the app and the rest is history.

Don't judge, but we let her stay up til 10pm with a friend of hers because they were playing so quietly with Steve's iPad. However, when we finally pulled the plug, and told her she needed to go to bed, she lost it. Steve told her if she went to bed, she could play the "matching game" when she woke up.

So at 6:30 this morning, she walked downstairs and went straight to Steve to ask for his iPad. She played all morning until we went to church, then again after church, then again after her nap, then again after dinner. He has downloaded a couple of new apps since this morning to keep her interested and challenged. One is a spelling game, so we'll see how long it takes her (and Preston) to master that!
