Since our June beach trip was full of rain and we decided not to go to Disney again this calendar year, we decided to go to the beach for a full week. Saturday to Saturday. Eight days and seven nights. Maggie was probably more excited than any of us!
We had lots of fun, but had a bit of bad news on Wednesday. Our hamster passed away. Olivia had been acting normal and extremely active for the past several weeks. I had found a little bit of blood in her cage a few weeks ago. Maggie saw it too and had asked if she was okay. Since she seemed fine, we hadn't thought too much about it and wondered if it was some coloring from some of her food. All of my hamsters had lived for over 2 years and we had only had Olivia for 15 months, so Maggie was especially devastated and I admit that I was too. I could write pages about the conversations that we have had about her since she left us. More than anything, Maggie wants to know what caused her to die. All of the people that Maggie has lost in her life had some sort of sickness beforehand. To the girls, Olivia was truly a member of our family. Maggie wrote her notes and both girls prayed for her every single night during their bedtime prayers.
And now...beach happiness!
