Just a week ago, I’d written about how the Xbox controller, with its two thumbsticks, numerous buttons, and two triggers, was overwhelming for NaNi, who is now 3.25 years of age, even though she’d had no trouble mastering a computer mouse by age 2.5, just like her brothers. Last night David, Isaac, Naomi and I […]

Nichelle, of course! Sunday morning I was teasing Nichelle, because she didn’t cook me an omelette like she does during the week.

Last week in the Junior Church class Nichelle and I teach, we began a lesson on the life of Josiah, who was the king of Judah. Josiah became king when he was eight years old, and was one of the better kings of that period. To introduce the topic, I used two discussion topics, to […]
