Mommy's new Job!

Hi Everyone! First, an update on our house search. It's come to a halt right now. The house that we really liked and wanted to make our home just didn't work out for us right now. We've really slowed down on looking for the time being though. We know that something will come along, and we're just going to sit back and wait a while for it to come. 

In other news: MOMMY GOT A NEW JOB! She will still be working at the university, but she won't be cleaning any more. She will be the Administrative Assistant for the Communication Department.  Everyone in our family is really excited. For those of you who are familiar with our family know that during the school year Mommy has to work in the evenings leaving Me and Daddy at home by ourselves. Now we get to be a real family!!! It's so exciting! She starts her new job on Monday!

Everything else is good here. Ashland is doing GREAT with potty training, and the weather here has been wonderful :-) The weather people say that it has been the coldest July on record here in NE Indiana. We hope the weather in your area has been nice, too. We love everyone! Let us know how you're doing in a comment!

In search of a house...

As some of you may know, we have been on the lookout for the perfect house for our family. Mommy and Daddy has looked far and near for the right one and we have finally stumbled across it. Today I got to stay at daycare for a while longer while they went to meet with Miss Kelly (our realtor) to put in an offer on the house. Please, please, please say a prayer that the house that our family likes so much is really "the one" for us.

We'll keep you posted!

Home from Vacation

Hi Everyone! 

We made it home from vacation yesterday. We went on a cruise with all of Tyler's Mom's family. There were 15 of us and we went to Alaska and Canada. It was absolutely beautiful there! We all had a lot of fun. Some of the highlights were--seeing a lumberjack show, seeing bald eagles, seeing a bear in downtown Jeauneu, seeing a glacier, finding real gold, and seeing some seals in the wild.

It was an amazing experience. Ashland loved the entertainment on the ship, and he has never eaten so much in his life. He was so well behaved the whole week...and best of all...HE ONLY ONLY HAD 2 ACCIDENTS THE WHOLE TIME WE WERE GONE! He only wet the bed one night and had one accident during the day while we were on land and weren't able to find a restroom as easily as we needed to find one.  We have decided that it's time to start drinking from a "big boy" cup at home, and not have a sippy cup all of the time. 

Our final big news for Ashland while on the trip is that he got to sleep in a big boy bed while on the cruise. He did so well that we have decided to put him in a big boy bed at home. He slept through the night in his big boy bed last night. Our baby is growing up...

We will post lots of pictures on flicker this week and we will post the link on here. 300 pictures is a lot to load, so give us a few days. We'll make sure it's done soon :-)

We hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th of July. Ashland didn't have the energy to stay awake for fireworks this year, so we missed them, but they happen every year, so we didn't miss much. Back to work and daycare for all of us this week :-)

Lots of love from the Benners <3

P.S. Brooklyn, Ashland says Hi  :-D
