We upgraded to smartphones with a data plan. Benjamin has been avoiding this as long as possible. He has done considerable research in the past few months and has since jumped with both feet into the mobile/digital age. We went to the Sprint store to update our plans and Bee efficiently entertained herself for the hour or so that we were there working out all of the particulars.
There are so many apps out there for so many different purposes. We enjoy searching them out and have found lots of educational apps that are teaching Bee to read. My only complaint is that the phones use a lot of battery and have to be charged often. They are not very useful if you are out in the middle of nowhere with no way to charge your phone. I guess we'll need to look into solar chargers for our next camping trip. We won't be able to afford it though now that our monthly cell phone bill rivals our mortgage. ;)
