Shout out






Yesterday I met Ben at the ball field. I had dropped the boys off and he came shortly after ( to relieve me of my watching-baseball-practice-every-Tues &Thurs.-from 5-6:30)When I saw him he had this kind of bummed out look on his face.

I asked what was the matter and he said, "just a bad day at work". Later he told me the rest of the story. I hate to see that look on his face. It makes me sad.

So I just want to tell Ben how much I love him. He works so hard to provide for the kids and I. I have been able to be a stay at home Mom since I had Harmony. I know that there are a lot of women who would love to stay home and can't. But thanks to my hard working hubby, I can. I may not have the biggest house or the fanciest car, but I am well taken care of. Dare I even say it? A little...spoiled! :)

Ben is such a hard worker. Not just at his actual job, but in everything he does. His church calling, his duties as a father...everything. He is involved in what the kids are doing. From helping the boys (and me!!) with Scouts, to learning all the kids name's on the boys baseball team, from playing legos for hours, to taking the kids to movies or to go play baseball in the backyard. He is a wonderful person. No wonder he is so tired all the time! :)

Even though Ben is Navy, he still has to get his Architects License. So he has been busy studying away. Unlike the engineering exam, this one has more than one test. I think there are 10. He passed the first and is now onto the 2nd. They don't tell you your scores just pass or fail. But I am sure he did very well on the 1st!! So after a few months of studying, he goes in to take his test today. I know he is going to do great but I just want to wish him luck anyway!

I know he will be embarassed by my mushy gushy blog post, but I don't care. He means the world to me and I am grateful for all he does for our family! Love you honey and GOOD LUCK ON YOUR TEST!

That is so sweet. Even if he is embarrassed. I think they like to know we still kind of like them. :)
