Bennett's 6th Birthday!

This post is a little late, but so is everything else these days! Bennett's birthday was on April 18th, so now I have a 6 year old. I can't believe it, but on the other hand, he very often seems like a 16 year old, not a 6 year old. We had a "camouflage party" for him at my parent's house. His dinner request was beans, rice, and tacos, and in lieu of a cake this year, he requested banana splits. He saw them on TV and thought they looked pretty great. They were a big hit and definitely easier on me! Bennett was blessed with all kinds of fun gifts this year. We got him a skateboard and a knight in shining armor costume. His grandparents got him a "school" table. A really high quality table like they have in classrooms for him to do his work and play on. He has really been enjoying it and uses it every day. Some family friends got him a 5 foot lion that we named "Judah." They don't know how small our house is, and he takes up a VERY large space. Bennett also got alot of various paper and drawing items, and he has really been into tracing paper and art lately. It was a wonderful celebration, and we are so blessed to have Bennett as our son. He keeps us on our toes and challenges us everyday to be more like Christ. He informed Jeromy and I the other day that we are only doing a pretty good job at being parents, not great. Apparently we have some things to work on. The kid is right!
