Christmas 2008: sleeping right in the middle of the action
I was not prepared for how upset the kids would be. I think I was so wrapped up in my own emotions yesterday that I didn't consider how they would take the news. Seeing them so upset made an already long day even longer. They have constructed a makeshift memorial with one of his dog beds, his food and water bowls, and some pictures and letters they drew last night.
We're going to be getting used to a quiet house and remembering our dear friend.
