Benny and Yaya at five

This year marks Ben and Ella’s fifth year – a seemingly landmark year.

The babies are gone. Well, they still come out once in a while, but they are rapidly moving into the next phase.

I met Maddy when she was six. I remember how sweet she was during those years before the great change – the great transformation into a young adult.

These truly are the good old days.

Happy birthday my son and daughter.
