I had worked out a swap so I could go with Olivia's class of their field trip to the Cape Cod Canal. I really was interested in learning about this as well and I learned a lot about the canal and the travel of boats through it. I did not learn a lot about the building of it as they worked on that in class so I may need to do my own homework.
It was a beautiful yet cold day.
When we got home I am unloading all our car crap and they come running out to the car yelling that Ted won't move. Well, frequently I have seen these poor hamsters dragged from their slumber when the kids want to play so I say let me look.
Oh no, he was gone.
These girls scramble into action. He needs a funeral!!! I sort of stood back and assisted them with whatever they needed. This was the outcome. It was placed on the side of the house so Ava could see it from her window. We each spoke some fond memories and Ava and I sat outside for a bit.
She really is a sweet and gentle hearted little girl under that gruff exterior.
I later found Ava cleaning out the cage by herself. (Sound like anyone else you know?) I asked if she was Ok and if she needed some help. We cleaned it together and for now I think she will be putting her birthday fish in it. She asked to keep the Welcome Home Ted stickers that Auntie put on the side and of course she can.
