I was living in Japan when Pokemon were big (so that means it was A REALLY BIG DEAL). My brother Johnny, sister (Cecily), and I all started big collections of cards and little toys and got the gameboy games, etc, etc, etc. I remember trading cards in the park by our house haha. Cecily and I always loved the cute Pokemon--who cares about fireballs when you can have big, googly eyes? Johnny and most of the boys wanted the most intense/strongest. This made trading cards between boys and girls pretty easy. So maybe Pokemon was a good system for encouraging cooperation and interaction between the genders? Ok! Enough of my random thought! Time for sleep!
But first, which was your favorite Pokemon?
I definitely liked Eevee, Caterpie, Jigglypuff, Snorlax, and others!
PS - Today was Sunday and I had a great day at Church and at a broadcasted talk by one of the Apostles, Elder Scott. I also am now officially the Sunday School teacher and am so excited! I love to teach and I love the scriptures so it is a perfect combo. I really pray I can do a good job!! :) Sweet dreams or happy day to you all!
