Ben's school had they're 100th day a few weeks ago. This week he brought home an "IF I HAD A HUNDRED..." sheet. Kannon and I both got a kick out of his thought process. 7-10 he got to fill in the 100 ________. We just love our Benjamin!

1. If I had 100 dollars, I would ... Spend it on a merbership card.
2. If I had 100 pencils, I would ... Sell them
3. If I had 100 mosquito bites, I would .., Diiiiieeee!!!
4. If I had 100 friends, I would ... Play with them

I love you because......

We had a fun Family Home Evening last night. Kannon was in charge and found this lesson.
Sorry I'm no good at the link thing.

One of the hearts said, "Tell what you love about a family member."

Me: I love it when Sarah helps me make things in the kitchen. She's a great helper. - followed by a most sincere hug from said Sarah.

Kannon: I love Benjamin because he likes to do stuff with me - camping, basketball.

Sarah: I love you, Mom, because you help me pick up my toys.

At the end of the lesson Ben was disappointed that he didn't get a turn to say one. (There were only 3 of them to pick.) So, I asked him to say one.

Ben: I love Joshua because he always smiles at me.

It was sweet. And for once I actually DID feel the love at FHE!
