Too Many Games!

You can tell we use electronics too much when we go on a bike ride and  Gordon needs to "Regen his energy".

Gordon came into my room this evening crying.  I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he hasn't been sleeping well "these nights".  He said that the only way he can sleep without being frightened is if he watches a movie.  I suggested that he read a book.  He talked about how you can remember things forever and he was worried that he would be scared forever.  After talking to me for about 20 minutes he decided to go to bed.  On his way out of my room he said, "Dad is kind of the best at taking the fear away."

We had our Home Teacher come over tonight and he shared a message about testimonies.  He shared a few stories about testimonies.  After he left, I was listening to Gordon read.  Gordon had red eyes and he said, "I might cry because I just feel like crying."  I told him that sometimes I feel like crying too.  He said, "It's because of the stories that guy was telling.  They made me feel like crying."

Best Friends

Yesterday Gordon and Ellis were playing a game where they collected a bunch of invisible diamonds. 

Just before the bus came, Gordon said with excitement in his voice, "Want to sit with me on the bus?"

Ellis said, "Yes!"

Gordon said, "And we can keep talking about this game! Want to play with me at school?"

Ellis said, "Yes! And we can keep playing this game!"
