Maybe God wishes to teach me a thousand new things, move me from being in a thousand different directions to just ONE, and show me a thousand reasons to BLESS his name. Maybe that is why He moved me 1,000 miles away.

For Benjamin

Many of you know that Benjamin spent Memorial Weekend in the hospital with

a bacterial abscess in his leg. He is home and doing well, but actually a bit fussy...perhaps it is the

medications, or that he is teething ( 10 weeks!). So, I made this video for him to watch and he loves watching it over and over again. He especially likes the picture of himself on the green mat. Anyway, he sends it out as a thank-you to all who prayed for him and consoled his momma.

Awww...little Benji. :) He looks so big in the pics with him on his tummy! Audrey looks pretty darn cute in that wheelbarrow too. Tell her I'll have a nice mulch project for her to do while she's here in July.

He looks so big, almost bigger than Miichael (well in the pics, but not in real life)
bring him to MN soon!

That is so precious - I am sure he will love to watch it when he is older too.

We're so happy he's doing better and cannot wait to meet him.

Yeah, he has changed so much. Those pictures of him pushing up on my bed were taken Monday. He is a determined boy and loves to try to roll over, but I think he won't be doing that for a while.

Audrey was so dirty from working with the mulch that it took scrubbing her with a dishtowel to get most of it off. She had a bath and a shower and still has some rubbed in dirt still on parts of her feet!
