Today was hard
We did not do school yesterday so we made it up today. Tara and I lit a candle this morning in remembrance of all those who died today 9 years ago. The kids asked about it, so I told them. It was a very hard thing to do though. How do you explain to a 6 year old and an almost 5 year old how scary that day was? Do you even want them to know? I did the best I could, explaining what happened (without even mentioning Muslims). We told them that was the reason for Daddy being away from us. We also watched a short clip on the towers falling. I was torn on if I would show them, but they are both pretty advanced and I figured they could handle it. They did well with the short lesson.
