I just told the kids we were visiting, I didn't go into details. How much can you tell a 9 year-old and a 7 year-old who is bad with abstract concepts?
I'm still not ready to say a final goodbye, but I am glad we came to tell them they were in our thoughts, with all our love. I am glad my kids got to see this person one more time. I hope they have good memories of them.
As usual, the kids were a bright spot for me. I think it's important for them to be included with important family events, and I loved being able to be close to them and hug them tight for most of the day. It made me feel a little better.
|If nothing else, they will remember the fish and parakeets.|
|James took this picture; I think he likes the ramp.|
|Spring is on the way.|
|Not surprisingly, the fountain was fascinating.|
|James loved splashing ...|
|And getting clooooose ...|
|Voila. The kid who hates to get his head wet soaked his bangs. Go figure.|
