As expected, we made it through the day. It wasn't the same as years past, living in a different city and having Gus be involved, but it was what we did this year.
We began the day going to the grocery store and choosing a breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner for each child. To keep Gus involved, he was in charge of choosing Tittle's food. The grocery shopping felt rushed, because we had to be aware of Gus not getting bored, but it felt nice to be able to think about what grocery shopping with Oscar and Bella could have felt like.
We then dropped all the food off at the local food pantry, where we were able to share their story and talk about them.
We then headed home, where we watched Bella's movie, The Pirate Fairy.

Gus wanted a balloon for each of them, not just Oscar and Bella.
