Mom is great...
but more of Dad.
So, Ben, in your quiet way you showed us that we needed to step it up and see the older boy that you've become. Because you've always been easy going and independent...it took us a little while to notice. Sorry about that. The growing pains of parenthood must be a trial to you at times, but we sure love you and can't wait to see the plan that God unfolds for your amazing life. Thank you for being one amazing boy...a son that brings honor to this humble family.
Lots of boys say that they want to be a lego designer when they grow up but I think that you are the kind of kid that just might do it. You talk about moving to Denmark and learning the the language. You just made a model of your chicken, Heidi. I was honestly impressed. "The entire bird articulates mom."
Yesterday you and I built a fire pit. It wasn't easy but the result was something to be proud of. I love that we did it together. You said, "Mom, this if very geometric you know."
We love you.
