“Dad, was there power when you were born?” Eli asked.

We all burst out laughing before we could answer, and that, of course, upset Eli. He wasn’t trying to be mean. He really wanted to know. We must seem ancient to him because he also asked me if I rode a horse to school. After soothing his feelings, we told him about our great-grandmas who rode horses and used kerosene lamps. He must be learning about history in school.

Eli is moving more and more into Legos. He has them scattered all over his room. I haven’t been able to tell whether he turning them into anything or just tossing them around. He wants the Lego game for Easter and a couple of sets. If he gets really good at this, we may have to bring in some shelves for him like we have for Christian.
