Daddy's Done It Again!

His 2nd album is completed and available on his website.!!!  Within one year, he's mananged to write, arrange, record, and produce not one, but two amazing albums.  (Not to mention run a trucking company, take care of his wife and children and much more.)  We may be slighty biased, but we're busting at the seams with proudness, excitment and happiness for him!

This past year has been full of adventure.  One we'll always remember, and this coming year is promising to be just as memorable.  Some people think this year has been hard: for me and the kids (in regards to bouncing back and forth, among other things).   And while I don't feel I have to explain or justify anything, it does bother me to have people thinking that.

Contrary, it's been some of the best times in our lives.  We've been able to experience so, so much.  Meet new, fabulous friends.  Share in some sweet fellowship.  Go to places we maybe never would have otherwise.  But mostly, we've been able to be a family through this whole experience.  There is no place I'd rather be at this time than right beside him.  With our kids.

I've hestitated to post anything regarding his music on here.  For a variety of reasons, but mostly because of those who don't agree with everything and voice their opinions (even more irriating and sadly behind our backs- which we all knows comes around to us).  We understand not everyone will agree with what we're doing, or enjoy Ben's music like we do, or understand the meaning behind it all.   Just like we don't agree with everything that other people do.  Yet, we are happy, content, and satisifed with our choices.  And I guess that's all that really matters.

way to go Ben!
I figure it's between you and Ben so no gossiping here :) Besides, he's an amazing man to have all that on his plate.

That's WONDERFUL, Go BEN!!! I couldn't agree more with Neisha....It's completely between you and Ben. Your decision no one elses. Sad that people feel the need to gossip about what isn't their decision or effects them. I'm so happy for you all!

I love your post and your honesty ... what a sweet family and I love how you share how much you all care for each other! Now excuse me while I check out the new album!!! Sending hugs!

I'm proud of ALL 6 of you! Way to go, Ben...you've done some amazing work! I wish people could realize that we each have our own convictions...and that is what we have to live by. What is right for someone does not make it right for others.

p.s.-for those of you who like to gossip about things like this...how many of you can say you're living your dream? mmmhmm...that's what I thought!

Boppa and G'ma S. said...

I agree with y'all.

Heather, you said it completely....NOTHING matters except that you guys are happy....don't listen to what others say, even though I know it hurts as we've been there. WAY TO GO Ben!!!

Way to go Ben!! Congrats to all of you! Isn't it great getting to live your dream! Excuse me while I go check out that new CD!!

ditto on the gossip... not fair. if it makes you feel any better, i've heard people questioning whether kelvin and i are still married. and even the "jokes" hurt. as for the travel back and forth, it seems to me it's been a pretty neat adventure; your family's been able to check out new places and see fun things! i love your honesty... care to write a post for me? :)
anyway, i love the samples from the new album too, and it's an awesome accomplishment for benjamin. oh, and i love what mel said about living dreams... TOTALLY agree!
sending love your way <3

I don't always get over here to check things out, but just wanted to say that it is great that yous are able to be there for him as he lives out his dream! And you & all others who said it are right, its great for your family to be able to see all the wonderful things you are seeing while traveling! Its years the kids will always remember and love. :)

Congrats on the 2nd album - i'm sure we'll enjoy it as much as we do the first one! I agree - your business is no one else's.

Elissa & Logan said...

I think that you all have something to be proud of! You are very happy together, and with what you're doing, and that's what counts!
p.s. GREAT new album, Ben! (and heather, and kids. you've probably inspired most of his songs!)

Heather T said...

way to go, ben! glad you can all be together as a family...and that you can experience things you never would otherwise...i agree with what's already been said by several...it's your life, your business, and if you're happy that's all that matters!:0) Enjoy it!
