Rick, Rena, Nicole, and the boys left on Friday morning. I was so sad. I stood in the hall by Nichelle's room and cried and cried and cried. I guess everyone left to take Nicole to college, but I couldn't go. On their way back, they spent a night in Yellowstone National Park. They stayed in a tent, on the ground, with wild, scary animals all around. I'm not sure if I'd like that. I wouldn't mind camping in the trailer, but a tent would be scary. Anyway, they brought me home a beaver! Isn't he cool? I've been knocking him around the floor and chewing on the little white loop on his head. He has a big nose and big teeth -- just like me!
