Are You Sleepy?

Nah. Of course not.

Why do I even ask such a silly question?

Sweet Sleep

I love to watch them sleep. We spent the morning at the park, leaving as soon as we got out of bed to each breakfast with our friends from the ward, and staying to eat lunch with a smaller group. The boys played hard, and now they're sleeping. I used to call it "baby gazing" when I just sat and watched them sleep. I'll have to call it something else today, because neither one of them can rightly be called a baby.

Teaching Our Children

Teaching our children to understand is more than just imparting information. It’s helping our children get the doctrine into their hearts. (2012 April General Conference, Teaching Our Children to Understand, Sat. Morning Session - Cheryl A. Esplin)

Boustrophedon

Nope, it's not a dinosaur; it's a cool word. It's the way the Ancient Greeks used to read: forwards and right to left on this line, then backwards and left to right on the next. Boustrophedon means "as the ox plows" - that is when you turn at the end of the row and go the other way. This and other interesting stuff is in the new book I bought on Saturday: Ox House Stick: the history of our alphabet.
