It struck me how sad the atomic boomerangs can look when placed next to each other in just the right angle. Today was the last day of our visit with this side of the family. It’s quite likely that the next time we’ll all be together will not be until May. It’s tough on the kids since they get along like best friends. My daughter takes leaving them the hardest since both sets of aunts and uncles played important roles in her growth when she was quite young and she is very close to all of her cousins. Now that we live hundreds of miles away, she feels a bit disconnected from the rest of our family. Today’s owl is a reflection of the sadness they all feel when we all head back to our home states.
