Ben's Poem

Ben was the Star Student of the Week last week in his class.  His teacher really put a lot of time and effort into making each student feel special when it's his week.  He got to make a poster all about himself, including family pictures.  He spent HOURS on this, he was so proud.  He also got to bring in his favorite book and have Daddy come in for lunch one day.  We were also asked to write a letter/poem/story about him and send it in for the teacher to read to the class.  Here's what we came up with.  It started as something I just wanted to check off the to-do list and turned into something really emotional and will be a keepsake for all of us.
Our Ben

One upon a time there was born a boy named Ben.

He came into this world and quickly became our best friend.

An easy, sweet baby with a special blanket of blue

He made us so happy we didn’t know what to do!

With brown hair and bright blue eyes

Our love for him came as quite a surprise.

Over time he grew and became such a smart, strong boy.

His smile and giggle brings us endless joy.

He became a big brother to Sam and then to Allison too.

He loves them and helps them and shows them what to do.

Ben loves swimming and hiking and camping and such.

He also loves baseball and video games just as much.

He’s kind and gentle and patient as well.

He has a heart of gold, you really can tell!

He’s becoming a great reader and writer this year.

And with God by his side he has nothing to fear.


We love you Ben!!!!  We are so very proud of you.
Love, Mommy, Daddy, Sam & Allie
