"The Ben" Turns 3


One day at Tage's baseball game our friends little boy was introducing us to different people he had met at the ball park. He came over and introduced me to his friend by saying "This is Mrs. Madson, she and Mr. Madson have "The Ben." We all laughed for quite a while at his most perfect, yet simple description of our Ben. Ben is quite frankly a unique little guy, as you can see from the picture above. He is the baby of the family and is still a toddler by grown-up standards but he has a deep BURNING desire to be six instead of three. He works hard at keeping up with his older brothers and has mastered many coordination skills that many six year olds are still working on. He doesn't exactly have a quiet gentle spirit, but he does give BIG, STRONG, LOVING bear hugs...you just have to be sure and practice holding your breath because they do take your breath away...literally!

Ooo, I like that! The kids are always trying to come up with a nickname for our Ben. . .he hasn't grown into one yet!

HAHA - now that is one of those pictures he'll probably be embarrassed of as he grows older.

Happy birthday to Ben.
