Slow but Steady

We reached a big milestone for our family (it may not seem big to other people- but for us it was big). We started reading the Book of Mormon with Garret the day he was born and finished on Sunday- two and a half years later! At first we would read 5 verses a night and then we started reading ten. I don't know that he got a lot out of it (he knows some of the main people in it and knows it talks about Jesus). Most importantly he knows it is important to read the scriptures (he helps us remember if we ever forget) and he will never remember a time in his life that we did not read them (or attempt to read them) every night. It has been a really good experience for him and all of us. We started again last night and are going to try and get through it faster this time.
