It's Holden...er...HolBen

It's all happening too fast. Holden is growing and learning so fast! This is what he wrote tonight.
Here are a few things that are happening in his little world right now.

He has taken on the huge responsibility of being a fish owner. After what happened to the D-O-G we figured it was best to start over with something easily replaceable. Fish seemed like a reasonable solution. We are going on 3 weeks and all three are still alive, no replacements called upon yet! They are pink and they live in a beautiful bowl on the side of his bed with pink rocks of course. Better yet, their names are Ho Chi and Minh, that's right, our child is now Asian thinking. Better yet, the fish have the last name of Jeepney. What, you didn't know that fish need last names? How else would you look them up in the phone book?

Holden is very busy swimming. He says; "Dad, lets go swimmin with women!" and off they head to the pool. He rarely uses any kind of flotation device and manages to stay above water most of the time. Very brave, in fact, too brave for our comfort!
