This is a totally different post. Thing 2's hero has passed away. Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" was killed by a stingray this weekend.

I am in shock. It seems silly I know, but Thing 2 ADORES him. I have been stalking the Austrian Zoo website trying to find out when his next visit to the US so I could take her to meet him.

He's left behind his wife Terry, and an 8 year old daughter Bindi, and an almost 3 year old son Bob. Say a prayer for his family. I don't know the state of his soul (of course) but I will be praying for God to strengthen his family through this loss.

We were bummed about this, too. But I didn't tell Bug Boy. I don't think the time is right, you know?

I have been thinking alot about this all week, but I can't think why. I just feel like the world's animals have lost a great crusader. I haven't told Dino Boy yet. I don't want to set him off after losing Pop-Pop this year. I keep thinking about his wife and kids, too. But I am also thinking about what will happen to his cause of protecting wildlife. Hope we can teach our children that animals belong in their world.
