This week, I'm on duty for a couple of 'night shifts' as well, which is always an adventure. This morning, Mikey decided he wanted to paint, which was a lot of fun. Of course, I wasn't expecting him to paint his hands and arms up to the elbows, but it washed off easily ;-)
On a sadder note, Lorraine's faithful companion of 16 1/2 years died last night. Kaela was a sweet girl, a tad scruffy perhaps, but a good friend to Lorraine and the boys. They are all sad to see her go, but she went quickly and didn't suffer. We are going to have a little service for her, and plant a tree or shrub in her favorite shady spot in the backyard. Liam and I wrote a list of all the good things he remembered about her. I'll post that when I get a chance, it's very cute.
