Sandra and I had two of our grandsons spend the weekend, Ashton (8) and Raiden (5). When Sandra drove them back home (Longmont, just outside of Boulder), she spent a few minutes speaking with their mom, our oldest daughter, Chase. Sandra had noticed Ashton teasing Raiden a bit about the video game Halo during the drive back up; Chase confirmed that Raiden really, really likes Halo. Chase said she didn’t realize quite how much so until Raiden’s Primary teacher (Primary ~= Sunday School for kids 3-11) told her that Raiden tends to relate all of the class lessons to Halo. (The Primary teacher said that her husband plays Halo as well, so she generally knows what Raiden is talking about.)
Somehow fitting for a kid who was, yes, named after a character from Mortal Combat. ..bruce..
(ObExp for non-LDS: the title refers to a well-known Primary song, “We’ll Bring the World His Truth“, better known by the first line of its chorus: “We are as the army of Helaman” — a song that never fails to move me to tears when sung by a group of children and which allows me to excuse Janice Kapp Perry for the rest of her rather ah, bland oeuvre.)
