Yesterday morning was going along fine, it was late start for Megan and Zach, so I decided to cut Zach's hair before he left for school. Something set him off and he sobbed the whole time I cut his hair. That of course, got me going as well. I told him he didn't have to go to school if he didn't want to. He decided to stay home with me. We loaded up Jonathan and got Scout on the leash and walked up to the cemetery. Duh, no dogs in the cemetery so we walked on by. We had a nice talk while we walked and I think we were both feeling better after that.
Yesterday was also Jonathan's first day of preschool at the library so Zach came along. He loves the library and the day was shaping up just fine for him.

This morning this is what I found in Mallory's room. She made her bed so pretty and made sure that Trent's picture was tucked in nicely by "Dupa".
We were cleaning up a little before bedtime and my little songbird a.k.a. Mallory was in a world of her own. (Just as a side note, earlier this evening we were eating dinner outside and Mallory ran into the house to use the restroom. Pretty soon we heard the most angelic, clear voice coming from the bathroom window singing, "Come Thou Fount". What 7 year old knows that song? We had a little chuckle over that one.) Anyway, as she was singing she was making up her own words and melody. I quickly realized she was singing as if she were Trent. I don't remember all the words in order but it went something like this:
I miss you so much. You don't see me but I see you. I don't have a body like you but we are the same. It hurts me so much to be away from you but I love you forever. I want to be with you all the time. You are the only one I love. Someday I will be back alive. It is coming quick, it is coming quick. How will I make it without you? I love you. I know you can do this I have faith in you. Just because I am not on the ground with you doesn't mean I am not there with you. I am with you all the time.
I was trying as hard as I could to remember everything she was saying. It was so cute and I loved every word! Tonight I am grateful for my little songbird. I feel as though I have been personally serenaded by Trent. :)
