So, I have been trying to get the boys away from playing video games so much. In particular, they love Lego Indiana Jones. It is a fun game but I think it is starting to affect how they act (more grouchiness and hitting than usual), and that is why I recently informed them that they would be taking a long break from Indiana Jones. Of course, Joshua fell apart over this. He cried and got it out of his system. A little later in the day, Josh came up to me and said (quite seriously), "Mom, I don't hit because of Indiana Jones, I hit because I don't know how to be like Jesus." The look he game me was that I really should just teach him to be like Jesus. Hello? We are trying to do that every day! At least I know he is listening during FHE even when he is flopping all over. It must be leaking into his head somehow. Oh boy, was I laughing inside! My response, "That's sweet honey, but no. No Indiana Jones." He didn't win this time...little stinker.

We got our bendy glasses for Noah, and well, I think they lasted all of two weeks. He discovered twisting them had no effect (other than making it hard for them to stay on his face). So he found a new way to destroy them. He decided to throw them in the rocks in the backyard. So yeah, they had about 5-10 good size scratches on each lens. Good thing we paid for the one year warranty. So once again...we wait for the new ones.
