Well, if the Patriarch Says . . .

Ian told us at dinner that he had a blank stare at the end of his class in priesthood. The young men's president asked him if he was deep in thought and he said, "Not really." He then asked if he was thinking about the Eagles game that was going on and he admitted that he was. Ian then backed up his response with, "My grandfather says that the sabbath ends at 4 (eastern time) or when the Eagles game starts, and HE's a patriarch." Our Bishop made note. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing!

As we watched the game during dinner, and I screamed throughout, Ellie would say, "Geez, Mom. It's just a game." Ian responded, "It's the Eagles. It's okay." That's my boy, that's my boy.

at one point in time Ryan told me that if i couldn't behave myself i couldn't watch anymore games. I now watch most games in annoyed silence.

Get him an ipod with earphones and load it up with easy listening music. Then scream your lungs out. Teach your kids to scream too. "Behaving yourself" has no place in football or hockey. Just ask the Patriarch.

That's so funny. If the sabbath ends at 4, then I guess I get to leave before the last hour of our church is over. I might actually be able to get dinner on the table before bedtime.
