Image Blocks Out of Order on Mobile View

I have created 6 separate images blocks with corresponding text blocks beneath.  They align properly and are in order from left to right in two rows of 3.  On desktop view, viewer can read from oldest to youngest (left-to-right top row first,  then from left-to-right bottom row). 

On mobile view the image blocks and corresponding text showing up in top to bottom column order reading as (which makes no sense since the images are in order of age).  

Any help appreciated!

When you add blocks to the page you are adding them to a grid. In this case, you've created three columns with four blocks in each, instead of adding three columns with two blocks, followed by three more columns with two blocks and so on. This is why they compress in the way that they do. 

You can resolve this by dragging the blocks around. It's easier to do by adding some line blocks to the page and then placing the blocks between them. You can remove the lines when finished. 

For example, here's a video showing four blocks that start out in the 'wrong' order on mobile. By rearranging them, they appear correctly.
