“What makes the ground stay?”
“Hmmm…that’s a good question. Derek?”
“Well, son, it’s because of gravity. It’s the force that pulls everything down.”

Connor thinks long and hard about this answer. I can tell he’s not buying it.

“Actually, it’s wood,” Connor says. Derek and I stifle a laugh.
“Yes. Wood is under the ground and that makes it stay. And then there is dirt and worms and lizards and ants and cockroaches and stinger bugs.”

How can you argue with that?

We watched a movie last night called “Everything is Illuminated” Go rent this movie! It made me laugh, made me cry, made me a bit angry, surprised me at some parts, and was just an all around great movie. It stars Elijah Wood, and I personally think that you can’t go wrong with any movie he is in. And this includes “The Man Without a Face” and “Forever Young.” (Remember those movies? They will forever remind me of spring break in Florida at my Grandma’s house.)
My little brother left for China yesterday for his great adventure. It’s not like I saw him all the time anyway, but I miss him. But I know that God is going to do amazing things through him. His life and the life of those around him will forever be changed. Prayers for his work, and he and his financee are mucho appreciated. It’s going to be an amazing 10 months for him!
