“Mack! Look! It’s a cardinal out back! Mom says when we see cardinals, a loved one is visiting with us.” Cheese said excitedly.

Mack looked out of the window. “I wonder who could it be.”

Dad was on his laptop in the middle of a Zune conference call and yelled upstairs. “Boys! Come downstairs! Someone wants to see you on my computer!”

Mack and Cheese came running down the stairs.

Mack looked at the screen, smiled, and waved, “HEY NANA! Hey PopPop! What cha doin?”

Nana replied, “Hey Mack! Hey Cheese! We miss you guys. We’re doing good. We’ve been watching movies. How have you guys been?”

Cheese spoke first, “I’m tired of the DAYVID virus. We can’t go on any field trips and worst of all, we can’t come see you!”

Mack followed right behind him, “Yeah! We can’t go anywhere. It’s no fun at all. We can barely play outside. When is it going to be over?!”
