So, my sister-in-law Debbie left yesteday morning, with her three kids, to go back to Israel. They were in Toronto for three years. It was so sad to say goodbye.
I, of course, had a good cry. I knew going in that if i looked at Adina, it was going to be all over for me. But, it was looking at Debbie that totally set me off.
I can’t say that I am particularly close to her, she is 8 years older than i am, and we are very different people, but I’ve gotten very used to having her and her kids around. It’s going to be a hard adjustment for all of us.
Last night Emily said to Gav as he was putting her to sleep: “Daddy, is Tali close enough for me to walk to her house?” He told her that she would have to take a plane and then she said, “well, once we get off the plane, can we walk there?” She just doesn’t get it. She’s doesn’t know any different then having her cousins around her. She will be the most affected by this, i think.
