Nick and Jamie. He wanted no part of picture-taking after the service, as many of our pictures indicate.
Nick and Caterina. Love this girl. They’ve bonded really well this year and get along famously. When he got to the church, he had on a dark blue tie, and she made him change it to a second tie (white) that I also had. She was trying to get him to stand up straight in this picture, and you could tell he was having none of it.
Love this picture. Totally depicts his personality.
Not to end on a down note, but if you’re the praying sort, please say a little one for Eli. He has had a rough weekend, and is currently unable to walk. Taking him to the vet tomorrow (after many fruitless efforts to get someone to see him this weekend), and hoping for the best, but bracing myself. Lyme disease or a slipped disc might be fairly treatable, but unfortunately hip dysplasia runs in Berners, and that would be terrible. If he doesn’t pull through, I’m going to have a very devastated little boy on my hands.
