In the frigid cold
While the rest of the world was blossoming
And I was cursing our tundra land still well covered in snow
Ben ran ahead and turned around with a huge smile on his face,
and exclaimed, "Mom, Look! Grass!!"
and he was standing in the one strip in all of minnesota that actually had unearthed some real ground.
and that pretty much describes my boy -
always looking on the bright side of life
very quiet, but very positive.
I know that he was sent to earth specifically for me...
to help me see the bright side of life
when I tend to get down in the dumps
Sure do love this
(no, this is not trick photography,
and no, the girl next to him is not a midget... she is actually a 'normal' sized kindergartner...
he really is that tall.)
And to celebrate his recent birthday, he got not one...
but TWO ultra cool-super-fancy super hero cakes.
He requested a star wars cake...
and I thought - darth vador... not happening
storm trooper... not happening
light saber - straight lines... I can do that :).
Happy Birthday Ben!!
(now please stop growing up so fast!!)
