Oh, goodness. I had completely forgotten that I blogged about Sadie! (Thanks for the reminder, Lynne!) I am sorry to say, she "didn't make it". We took her camping with us, fed her hourly, and on the last day we woke up and she was "no longer with us".
Mitch and Ryleigh buried her under a nice shady tree near the lake. They said a few nice words, and I think Ryleigh shed a few tears.
When they got back to the camper we were using phrases like "no longer with us" and "didn't make it"...and Reise looked at Rowen and Maeson and said very matter-of-factly: "boys, the bird is dead". And, in fact just a week ago or so (so, about a month later) Rowen asked about the bird, and Reise said "Rowen, she's DEAD, remember?!".
Ryleigh has said several times-it's sad, but that's just what happens with birds sometimes, and we made her really happy when we had her.
Well said :)
Choosing to love,
