One Amazing Kid

I'm sorry! I know, I have not been on here in 2 or 3 months! I forgot all about my blogger account because summer is amazing and I don't think I stopped moving till ... todayish.
I have some long overdue good news (sorry again). You see, I know this guy...

His name is Ben Graves. He come from an amazing family; you know the family that has parents who are so nice and have done such a great job with their kids that you want to ask them what the secret life is? The family that has kids involved in everything, and good at everything. Good grades, good at all the sports they are involved in, popular, good looking, and not even stuck up because of it. These are seriously some of the best behaved and well mannered kids I have ever met. ... you don't know that family? Then you don't know the Graves.

Ben is one of the students that I noticed always pays attention, always has an answer, and always seems to genuinely get whatever we were studying. But he had never been baptized... that is until the one day I decided to neglect me phone. I missed the call to come and baptize Ben! Ben had been thinking about this for a long time, and finally made the decision... and I was unreachable. *sigh* epic fail on my part. Oh well, Austin came to the rescue and I picked up my phone about 30 mins after he got done baptizing Ben.

I think Ben took the Lord seriously when He said to count the cost of being His disciple before making that all-important decision (Luke 14:25-35).

So now, this awesome friend of mine, can add Child of God to his long resume of awesomeness. Here's to you Ben. ... oh! and if you are wondering which stone Ben is like... humm, I'd have to say the Rock, lol.
