We also celebrated Ben's birthday the Wednesday before so it was a full week!
Pardon the feet...I have weird toes...
Made me want to go camping and barbeque everything I eat!
I love being able to eat outside and stay outside until it gets dark.
It's sooo nice not to have to do all the parenting on my own (which only comes to mind because both our mothers did this whole thing alone. I can't even imagine what a challenge that must have been.).
Being able to run out of patience and know that he can fill in for me. He reads to our children, teaches them to play soccer correctly, to make me laugh, and how to be a good person.
He is the guy that will pull over to help someone having car trouble. He helps people reach things on the high shelves in the grocery store. He picks up trash. He does the right thing, even if it's not his responsibility. He has helped me to be a better person and helped me be ok with being me.
I'm really not super comfortable expressing emotions so writing this is a little challenging...but I really love this guy! He's my best friend and my biggest supporter. One thing we've realized during this past year is that "home" really is each other. It's a wonderful thing to have him in my life, and I'm really happy my children have him for a father!
