I should never had said that I wouldn't post again until tomorrow night when we find out the gender.
That was a big, fat lie.
I apologize.
The thing is, it's been a pretty exciting week around here.

Tomorrow is Ben's last day at SFP (Strategic Financial Partners).
It's a bittersweet time for us.
He has LOVED working there for the last (almost) 10 years.
He adores the people he works with.
They are so wonderful to him and have been like family over the years.
They've seen him graduate from college, get married, and have shared in the excitement of the baby on it's way.

Last night, they threw a going away party for him at the office.
His boss also wrote a tribute about Ben.

His boss, Jim, and his bosses' wife, Teri, recently took a trip to Italy.
This is what they brought back for us:

Aren't they adorable!?
I couldn't get over how thoughtful it was of them!
We LOVE them and are sure Baby Bolt will, too.

I wanted to somehow show just how tiny they are.
So, I decided to have Jack model them.
It took an entire handful of Pirates Booty to bribe him into compliance.

Don't be fooled by the look on his face.
He did NOT like wearing the booties.
He did, however, like the cheese puffs. :)

Alright, back to the important stuff.
Monday begins a new chapter in Ben's career.
He is joining the team at the CCB (Church Community Builder).
We have been incredibly blessed by this opportunity!

This has been such a sweet season in our lives.
Thank you, Lord!
