An honorary football captain
Last night our little guy was honored again by the Murray County High School (Georgia) football team during what may be their biggest game of the season. The team, who played their major rival, made Ben an honorary team captain for the night. He accompanied the actual team captains onto the field and participated in the coin toss that began the game. We were unable to be there, so his mom took these photos:
What a surprise to discover that the high school also devoted an entire page of their 2015-2016 football program booklet to Ben !
After 3 brain surgeries, Ben is playing soccer !
Every week, Ben goes to physical therapy to help with the range of motion on the left side of his body. Because the original fistula was on the left side of the brain his muscle development on that side, particularly in his leg and foot, have been affected.
But after getting an okay from his doctor in New York, Ben is playing on an indoor soccer team. The team is for children ages 4 to 6, and Ben is running and kicking the soccer ball with no difficulty at all. During his first game he scored a goal for his team ! My husband and I were able to attend one of his games a week ago:
A kind-hearted kindergartener
Ben’s school recently held an open house which his mom and dad attended. This is what they brought home:
Look closely at the last statement which says “If I had a million dollars I would give all of it to my neighbors.”
We are so proud of our kind-hearted little guy! And he has a favorite little neighbor. They are so sweet together…
