Zeb loves rules and loves to follow routines. He has getting ready for bed down to a science - starting at 8 o'clock sharp. He cannot go to bed until he is in proper pajamas, brushes his teeth, reads a book and says a prayer. He will remind us if something has been missed. We recently added scripture study to the night time routine. We found the Book of Mormon for kids on the church's website and have been watching a chapter every night. We watch one new chapter and the story of the brass plates every night. I think Zeb and Ike can quote the "Brass Plates" chapter verbatim.
Lately Ike has been SO whiny to me. As soon as I get home he whines about everything, and wants me to do everything for him. "I want a driiiiinnk..." "I need help in the bathroooommm..." "I want you to play with meeee..." During the scripture story he started whimpering and I was wondering what he was going to demand of me next. I took a deep breath and tried to ask patiently, "What's wrong Ike?" He started to cry, "This movie is too scary for me."
This is what was happening in the movie:
The wicked people gathered the women and children who believed and threw them, along with their scriptures, into a fire.
Alma and Amulek were forced to watch the women and children die in the fire.
