Soccer Games, Sword Fights, and Glowsticks - Typical Weekend With Benton!


My parents were out of town this weekend and I was left home to play Mom. Luckily, Brett jumped in to play Dad... or maybe it was second child, but either way, both Ben and I were happy to have him around. On Friday night we went to Brett's game and then slept on the trampoline surrounded by 30 glowsticks of all colors while we watched Shrek on my laptop. While we were looking at the stars Ben, with great concern, said, "Allie, some people think that the stars are just gases but I know that Heavenly Father made them because he made everything." What a big testimony from such a little guy! At 5am we made a mad dash inside when the sprinklers underneath the trampoline came on. On Saturday morning Brett and Ben enjoyed some of my fabulous cooking (Yes, you are sensing some sarcasm. I could burn water.) After eating we had sword fights. We then went to Ben's last soccer game of the season. It was a fun weekend! Mom and Dad had a great time on their river rafting trip too!
