Time with My Honey.

I'm so proud of Ben. He made it on the Dean's List. When we were dating I had no idea how smart he was. It's a nice little bonus. He worked so hard for his grades. And they use a curve so it really is an honor for him to be ranked in the top 1/3 of his class. Law school is competitive like that. Well, I was so proud of him I got him a present . . .
an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. It says "Congrats Ben 1 down 2 to go!!" It was yummy and we've already ate it all.

This weekend we were suppose to go camping at Shenandoah National Park but my sunburn hurt to bad for me t0 be lugging around a back woods pack, so we just went to the lesser, near by park - Great Falls. It was an easy hike but still a lot of fun.
Aren't they beautiful? There were some people kayaking down them. It looked fun and scary all at the same time.
Ben has been collected the National Autobon books for a couple months now. So far he has trees of the East, Birds, and Spiders and Insects. He was able to identify a caterpillar, a bird, and a spider. He was pretty excited. He could tell you exactly what they were and if we ever see them again, he'll remember. I'm not good at stuff like that. I've already forgotten all the trees we identified around our neighborhood.

I LOVE MY HONEY!!!

Benjamin,
Congratulations! We are very proud of you. Just one question -- if you're so dang smart, how come you married Liz? JK! We are very happy that you did marry Liz. You two make a great couple and we enjoy having you in our sometimes crazy and bizzare family -- heck not sometimes -- all the time!!!
Best wishes on your next two!
