Going to the cemetery was hard. It is the same place Olivia is buried. It's also where my brother and sister are buried. We had never really explained this to Abby, but this time she asked who the two other small stones by Olivia were. Stewart explained that they were Mommy's brother and sister who were in Heaven with Olivia. Abby thought a minute, and then, it was almost like a comfort to her. I was like she was! She went around telling the family that was my brother and sister just like hers in Heaven. It was sad, but touching at the same time. It's amazing what that little, young mind has had to process in her short years. God has comforted her and shielded her in a way I never could.
That night, we debuted the Harvest dresses for the year. Yes, I'm one of those holiday themed, OCD, match my children mothers :) I did get them half price at the end of the season last year though, so it's all good :)
And here is our newest Daisy Scout on her first outing to the police station!!
We found out today that Abby is going to have surgery Monday morning. They are going to put tubes back in her ears, take out her adenoids, and "clean out" both sinus cavities! Not fun, but we are hoping this will help her with some health issues she has fought for several years. We were planning to go to the Smokies for Fall Break, so we are going to go for a few days this weekend to distract her from the upcoming events. Please say a prayer for us in the coming days! I hate it when the babies are sick! Ellie Kate is feeling better - let's hope it stays that way!
