The Benson Family

Hi Badger Staffers!

I just happened to stumble on this blog...who knew that the 2008 staffers had a blog!

First of all, Congrats to Will and Tiffany! being parents is pretty much the most amazing thing ever! even more epic than the poster Abe took a picture of.

It was so great to read about what everyone is doing in life. For those of you still in Rexburg, Cherish every moment you have at BYU Idaho it is a blessed place.

Josh and I are doing well. We find ourselves far from our Idaho home, but we are striving to build Zion in Sunny Arizona. We have been living in Scottsdale for a few months now. Our son J. Will (short for Joshua Willard) is 14 months old and he is the joy of our lives! For those who may not know, J. Will was born with Down Syndrome. He is adorable, sweet, and very loving.

Our lives have taken many unexpected turns since we last saw you all; at this time Josh is preparing to apply to medical school. He hasn't decided if he wants to go the distance and become a physician, or to become a physician assistant. If anyone has advice for him, I am sure he would love to hear from you.

We love you all

The Bensons


  1. Awww! I love you guys!

    I know his name is J. Will, but...

    Baby Joshy looks so cute! Thank you for sharing the pictures and an update on you all.

    (This is Rachel, by the way.)

  2. First of all...I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

    It has been too long.

    So, I have some advice. My dad is a physician and he always preaches that if he were to do it again that he would've become a P.A. I'll have to talk to him and find out more, but I'll let you guys know. He would be happy to talk to Josh too.

  3. I would def. agree with mackenzie!! I am in the Exercise and Sports Science Department and we just had a P.A. speak to us and he says that being a PA is much better and he is grateful for his decisons because he can move around he doesn't have to stay in one specialty and only do surgeory he can do surgeory or go do something else. Plus, schooling is shorter and its either the second or third job in the nation, look it up! I would choose to be a PA myself! Good luck, and I know you will choose the right one for you!!
