That's old. I don't even know where to start. Ben is good. So good. He helps, he serves, he is kind, he is funny, athletic, he is smart, he stands out. Did I mention he's strong too? His gym class had a pull-up contest. Out of 50ish 6th grade boys he came in second place with a solid 10.
His birthday was last month. He's twelve now. At church that means he graduated from Primary (the Sunday school program for kids), and has moved on to the youth group (teenagers--yikes!). He also received the Priesthood, which is humbling and beautiful. Now that his responsibilities include joining other young men in passing the sacrament to the congregation, he got a new suit for his birthday. Good looking kid.
