Last but certainly not least...

Ben's birthday!
Ben turned 11 yesterday.
He had to get to his swim meet before the sun was up so we decorated and celebrated later in the day.
He is already looking forward to his next birthday when he can sleep in.
(The big home swim meet is always this weekend in Nov. so last year he had to get up early, too.)
He was very excited to get a hiking backpack as he is looking forward to moving up to Ethan's Boy Scout Troop in March. He wants to hike with the big dogs! :) I'm excited for them to get to do that together.
Last week Ben said several times how great it would be if we got our referral on his birthday. He might be the most anxious of us all to see his sibling's face!
This boy has such a sweet and gentle heart when it comes to little ones.

And just as the saying goes: All good things must come to an end....Our birthday celebrations are over and now we are on to a week of check ups. From birthday cakes to booster shots!! I'll spare you the pictures and blog posts.

Have a great week!


  1. Happy birthday Ben!! We love you!

  2. There's something about that name. My Ben is so excited to see his sibling's face! He's probably next anxious after me. :) Sounds like a great day! Happy Birthday Ben!
