This was the year that we literally arrived home from a long hospital stay with Ben the day before Halloween. That's when the creative juices (or not) for last minute Halloween costumes start flowing. "How about Karate Kids?" Kaleb was in his 4th year of karate and owned a black and white Gi and Ben had his very own Gi as well. We borrowed one more Gi and had enough to go around. It was about the least exciting costume for Kaleb (poor boy). Probably because he wore his Gi's twice a week. He was a good sport though and went along with the theme.
Today is the 29th. That means 5 months since Ben passed away. It's been a hard day for me. This date seems to hit harder and harder every month.
