One of my favorite things about being married to Ben is listening to (and reading) his stories. He always keeps me laughing. I can't wait for Mary Ellen to appreciate storytime with her daddy.
I recently read through all of his previous blog posts, including some from Chisholm Project (when he lived in a bad neighborhood on purpose), and I was reminded again of a few reasons that I was so impressed with him for 4 years (before I impressed him). He is just so very good with words.
My favorite funnies from his old blog:
#3 The neighbors' goat -- the funny part is in the comments
#2 Teaching Shay grammar
#1 Ben, the rat
