Guess what happened today.

Everyone was having a tough time saying good-bye, when someone started fake crying.  And this is what happened next...

If it is even possible to have a good parting, this was likely the best one ever! We all started laughing and hearts were lightened by the folly.

Jake remembered that he and Jack had found some cool pieces of ice down by the river.  He wanted to take his piece home to Ohio, and his cool mom found a way to make that happen.
As they were uncovering the ice, Claire came back up to the house. Thinking she must need the bathroom or that she'd forgotten something, I asked, "What is it, Clairey?'  "One final hug for Joel," she said, as she grabbed him.
It's been a hard day around here.  The house is empty and quiet.  We're rattling around in it.

"Sweet sorrow!"
