    11th Birthday

    The boy who made me a mom turned 11 last week and we’ve spent the last several days celebrating him. We started Ben’s actual birthday with singing and a birthday donut before a 1/2 day of school. The boys’ school had a planned early out day so we headed to lunch at Fuzzy’s followed by a small family celebration that night at home.
