Benjamin James Smithies

Next on the list after Sophie is... Benjamin!

(Have you missed Dad, Jacob or Sophie?)

Benjamin James is the fifth oldest in our family and the oldest boy. He is currently 11 years old.

Benjamin (or Ben, as he is commonly known) loves doing sporty things, like running and climbing trees. (Below picture shows Ben running.)

He also loves reading books. He has recently got into Biggles books, which he really loves! Also Enid Blyton books will do when there is nothing else. ;-)

Ben is such a great older brother. He works so well with Johnny and always makes sure the younger boys have something to do if they are bored! He is a natural leader and takes charge with such patience and kindness with the result being that he is very popular amongst the younger children in our family!

Ben is a great worker and always does the job well. He loves making wooden boats in the garage and is making a destroyer! Perhaps when it is finished I will photograph it to show you.

Ben, I am proud to be your older sister. May you grow in wisdom and in stature and in favour with both God and man, just as Jesus did when He was on earth. May you be blessed greatly as you bless others.
