Well we managed to keep a hamster alive for more than a couple weeks this time around, but Bella still had a relatively short life. She passed away this afternoon as a result of an unknown cause. It was a bummer that this happened the day before Ivy’s first day of school, but she handled it pretty well. There were some tears from Ivy and lots of questions from Ada, but then they were playing the rest of the night so I don’t think they were too worried about it. Miss you Bella!
