Ellis was reading me a story about a dog yesterday. I said something about the dog and called it a her. Ellis said, "You can know if a dog is a boy or a girl by how it sounds when it barks."

On the inside

The other day we were watching "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules". In the movie Greg is watching a scary show about a foot. As an adult it is easy to see that it was pretty far out. To a six year old boy, however, it was pretty scary. I looked at Gordon and his eyes were wide open and I thought he was going to cry. I told him that it was just pretend.

Gordon said, "I know. I wasn't scared." He put his hand on his heart and said, "Just the inside of me was scared."


Today I was following Gordon into the condo. He ran ahead of me and then turned around to come back. I was closer than he expected and he jumped in the air and screamed.

He said, "You scared me!"

I replied, "I scared you and made you run in the air?"

Gordon said, "Yeah. And you made me girl scream."

United States

This morning Mia said, "I wish that Kamas was only a few minutes away and that Idaho was in the United Stated."
