Things are good in the Gilbert household, A was just commenting today about how there is generally a joyful atmosphere in our home, and he's absolutely right. Especially today while we had the opportunity to listen to the words of our amazing spiritual leaders in the 177th semi-annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The spirit has definitely been uplifting here in our little corner of South Phoenix.
This week I've had the opportunity to realize how grateful I am for my children. I've been able to watch some of the other kids in our neighborhood play together and it has really made me understand just how great my kids are. Not that other children are necessarily bad, in fact they all have been well behaved at my house, it's just that Heavenly Father sent me the kids that would be best for me, and I love that.
This week E has met some major milestones. He's started sounding out words. This is probably run of the mill for some of you parents out there, but I'm just so proud of him! He turned 4 just about two weeks ago, and I think it's wonderful that he is so excited about learning how to read.
He also did something funny at the park yesterday, he walked up to this random woman and told her, "You can call me Duke". I had a good laugh about that.
