I have sad news to report from the crabitat. Checked on it this morning and found that our favorite crab, Summers, has gone to the giant crabitat in the sky.
No idea what happened to him as he seemed fine the last few days. Thankfully, the other two seem to be fine for now.
Ryan is totally devastated, but I think a part of it is that it pulls up his grief over losing his grandfather. The poor little guy tried to be so tough, too. He was really trying to hold back the tears even when I told him it was okay to cry.
I know this is a small thing compared to the other losses he's already suffered in his short life, but it's enough already. The kid needs to catch a break. I didn't have to deal with a death until I was almost 17 years old.
I'll miss Summers - out of all three of the crabs, he was the one with the most personality.
