Benjamin at 7

 Benjamin Robert Anthony Dziadul turned 7 years old on February 22nd.  He waited along time for his birthday to get here and counted down sleeps since before Christmas.

 Ben is a great kid.  He loves to create and has extravagant ideas about what he can do with some tape and some sticks.  I have a hard time trying to explain why his creations won't work, because he is so sure his idea is fool proof.
 He is happiest when he is coloring.  Or painting.  Or using markers or tape or rubber bands or drawing.  He is an artist and has stacks of papers he has drawn or colored.
 He enjoys his siblings most of the time.  He, Sam and Emma love to play together games they have made up.  Most days they are outside running around or jumping on the trampoline.
 Ben is doing good in school.  He can put letters together to form words and can read all the sounds, but is not reading just yet.  I know the light will turn on for him in a short while.  He is a whiz at his math however!
 Ben just recently became a believer in Jesus.  He has asked so many questions over the past year or so and it finally all solidified in his head.  He was allowed to participate in Communion last Sunday and he was so thrilled.  What a joy to be able to be a part of that.
Happy Birthday Ben.  We sure do love you!
