Ben's New Wheels!
I know we've had the van for a couple of months,
but between getting it registered,
getting it insured,
and learning how to use the tie downs...
Last week was the first week in Ben's new van.
WE LOVE IT!
What a blessing it has been
and will continue to be to our family.

Ben's New Swing!
Today THIS arrived.
It's Ben's new toy.
Every little boy needs a swing.
This one is FUN.
We hooked it up in the doorway...
between the kitchen and family room.
He LOVES it already.
It's big enough for
Everthing is better with

EYE OPENING NEWS!
I told Ben we were going to Utah. This is how he looked BEFORE I told him the great news...
This was Ben AFTER I told him the great news!
He was TOTALLY speechless.
(in a really excited way)
It was EYE OPENING news. :)

I often think about this moment.
The moment that Ben came into the world.
I think about how he had such a rough start in life
and how he proved to be such a fighter.
I think about all the
and how he defied the odds that were against him.
I think about the LOVE that he must have felt
as we rallied around him.
I think about the pain that he suffered
and how one doctor told me he couldn't
I think about when the doctor told me
he would never come off the vent,
and then Ben surprised us all and he did.
I think about all the nurses that lovingly cared for him
and all the friends and family that cared lovingly for him.
I often think about that day...
