So Long, Farewell.

Guess who lost his front tooth?
Yep, the boy.  We have no idea where it went--
but we are smart enough to show the gap
while he's sleeping -- I do value those fingers.
He is such a comedian.  When I told him 
the girls were coming home from being away at camp for a week--
he said-- "No, no sisters."
Clearly, he enjoyed being an only child.
 The girls each came off the bus with big smiles.
 You should have heard them on the way home-- all trying
to talk at once.
 They spent the week at Camp Rainbow Gold's Siblings Camp.
About a hundred kids went-- all with brothers and sisters
who are fighting or have fought cancer.
I can't even begin to explain how much this means to my girls,
how much it means to be with others who understand exactly
what it is like to watch a sibling suffer so much.
 Camp Rainbow Gold understands that when a child
is diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed.  And they
set out to make sure the "shoved aside" siblings are
treated like royalty.
I know my girls adore everything about camp, especially
their friends.
 I'm sure that's the one thing they don't like about camp-
saying goodbye.
