Whew! It’s been too long again.
As you can see, the kids had a blast on the Fourth. Parade, picnic, fishing, fireworks…they just went full throttle all day long from one thing to the next. In the pictures, the last one is special to me. Fishing was done and Michael was very disappointed that he hadn’t caught anything other than a crayfish. He went off by himself…very sad and crying. Abby went to talk to him. No go. Grandma went to talk to him. No go. Daniel went to talk to him. No go. Finally, DAVID went to talk to him. This in and of itself is quite a little miracle because David doesn’t often have a lot of empathy for his younger siblings. Anyway, I captured the moment…brother comforting and encouraging brother. And in this case it worked…Michael got over his angst right after this.
