Bridging Ceremony

Norah bridged from Brownie to Jr. Girl Scout tonight! 

RIP Smokey 6/6/2018

We are devastated by the sudden loss of our dear Smokey. He was our first family pet and was only in our lives a short time, but he will be deeply missed. 
My heart is breaking for my Big Boy.

Alex and I stayed home to mourn and we went for a walk - found this little guy

We laid Smokey to rest today. Sam and I decided to do it before the kids got home from school. He picked a nice spot in the backyard near the rhody - Smokey loved to sit on the deck and look out over the yard so it was perfect. We told Alex first when he got home and then I met Norah at the bus stop to tell her on our walk back to the house. I thought it would be a nice idea to go to the beach and collect some rocks to put on the grave. After we placed them on the grave we went for ice cream and we had some nice family time. 
We will miss our Smokeshow-Bubby-Big Boy so much!

Even with all the tears, there is laughter. Thank goodness for my Flavia! Was such a wonderful gift to see you last night! Wicked love you!
