Slamming the Screen Door: Dispatches From a Summer Unplugged, Part II

TO recap: on June 1, my two sons and I went screen-free for the summer. No smartphones, tablets, computers, Internet, or television for 70 days. I’ve been keeping a daily journal about our low-tech experiment. Here are a few excerpts.

Any photos that may appear with this article were sent ahead in May. These excerpts were typed on an old Smith-Corona, then scanned as a PDF by my not-unplugged husband and sent along to The Weeklings.
