Blog Resurrection

What better day than Easter to bring a blog back to life? We have a lot to be thankful for, and I just wanted to give you a glimpse into what's happening with Ben these days. It has been almost 10 months since his last surgery, and his airway seems to have healed perfectly. God has made it like nothing ever happened except for leaving the scars so Ben can always tell his story.

Ben is now in the process of working toward his new dream of growing up to become a race car driver. Originally, he wanted to grow up to be a race car, but he has set that dream aside for now until technology catches up. Right before Christmas our next-door neighbor gave us a Ben-sized 4 wheeler that his kids were too big for. Now that the weather is nice again, I foresee a lot of time trials up and down the cul-de-sac.

We were also fortunate to visit uncle Hal and Aunt Emilie in Montreal during Christmas break. Since we were already paying to bring along an extra suitcase of gifts, we tried others ways to minimize travel costs.

We also had a crazy snowstorm on the first day of spring that gave us a chance to practice the skills we picked up in Canada. I'm pretty sure that baby snowman is going to give me nightmares.

Here are a few videos of Ben learning how to be Canadian.
