Happy Birthday, Benjamin!
When my boy was five, he sure was a cute bundle of energy!
But today, my boy-quickly-turning-into-a-young-man finished his eleventh year and began another with breakfast in bed and opening presents.
We tried to watch Monday Night Football (Go Steelers!) in a hotel restaurant, but their satellite was down. And we tried to have a pool party at the same hotel, but the pool had been drained.
So, we came home and watched the colored lines move across the screen and happily shared caramel brownies and ice cream with our SITAG family instead.
Oh, my Benjamin. He's still a cute bundle of energy (how I love his dimples!), but he is growing into a mature and creative young man who loves Jesus and has music oozing from his pores like his daddy (that viola will have to wait until we get back to the States). Happy 11th birthday, son!
