Over the weekend

James' fish Sammy died on friday. He was sad, but got over it very quickly. As I was getting ready to dump the fish in the toilet, Rachel leaned over the fish bowl with a very serious look and said, "Sammy you died, you just died, you are all broken." It was as if she was trying to console him before being flushed down the toilet.

Rachel being very curious about death, God, and heaven started asking alot of questions. You can just see her trying to understand it all. Here are some of her questions.

Did Sammy die like brother Matthew?
Where is Joey? (She can't comprehend that Joey is still alive, yet not with us anymore.)
While looking at the stars she asked, "Jesus, are you up in heaven?"
