P took B and G to the Fathers and Sons campout on Friday night. It rained like crazy but they toughed it out and made some memories. G was a superstar and won several games. P tells me that in kickball G did well enough that the adults would move back when it was his turn. Then G started to kick it short.
I love G. He's such an awesome, smart, capable boy. He's gone through more challenges in the first 5 years of life than most face in a lifetime. And he's got a great attitude and is kind.

A friend at church invited G to a birthday party on Saturday. The mom was talking to me about how they would carve out a special part of the party where G could attend for food and football. The rest of the party would mostly involve video games rated Teen. Oh, life. Fortunately G has a basketball game and won't be able to attend. I am grateful the mom understood that we don't play violent games and that she was interested in creating a space for G. I love that family. I hope their boys turn out ok. But we obviously have different opinions on what is appropriate for kids media.
I am so grateful that G lets us keep him young. He still watches a lot of shows that are targeted at a younger audience. While many boys are getting into violent and misogynistic media G is still playing games that are appropriate for all of our children.
