Here's the big first grader! Hard to believe! Benjamin has been a courageous little boy in this new adventure, and it is amazing to watch him experience some scary things (like a new school) with great determination. We miss Bethel a lot, he had such a great kindergarten year! I'm sure there is a great year in first grade ahead of us, though. : ) Oak Elementary, here we come! And for our Bethel friends, he still gets to be a Bee. (Well, a Stinger, but close enough).
I am WAY behind, so I'll just start with the present. We are now all together in Oregon-soon to be moved into our new Oregon home. : ) David keeps saying that in some ways it feels like he has never been away, so that must be a good thing. Home sweet home. : ) The boys are happy and doing well, and have had non-stop cousin/grandparent/aunt and uncle fun all summer. The day after David joined us here in Oregon (Labor Day) we went on a hike at the BEAUTIFUL Silver Creek Falls state park. At one point I made the mistake of saying to David, "Who needs Disneyland?," because the boys were having so much fun. Well, I didn't mean it! We STILL need to go to Disneyland at some point. : ) In the meantime, it is amazing at how happy three little boys are with rocks, sticks, and some water! Fun times, I tell you. These boys fill my heart with joy and gratitude!
