Here's to making it through the week without Ben. I must say prayers have been answered because it actually went rather smoothly. Without the help of my mom it would not have been possible. We had a good week and the kids are anticipating Ben being home, as am I. They should be home late tonight so the kids won't see him until morning.
I am excited to hear about his trip. Each night as I talked to him I was excited to hear about his enthusiasm for the people of Louisiana and, of course, about the antics of his travel group. Nothing is more bonding than spending a week with a group of people you don't know really well.
Anyway, thanks for your prayers for myself and Ben.
I just recently ordered a digital camera so I am excitedly awaiting the new toy in the mail --also so I can post some photos more regularly.
