Lydi set the lantern down as she turned back to latch the door on the small red barn. The two children had just checked on the chickens that the family had carried from their small coops to the barn that night. Grandma wanted them to make sure the chickens were safe and content on the roosts. The young girl followed her brother's gaze to the sky. "There is the Big Dipper, and over there the Little Dipper, and the North Star. Oh, look, Michael, the brightest star. It sparkles like a diamond. Do you remember its name?"

"Sirius " Michael answered proudly. "Do you remember the nights in Chicago when Dad took us outside next to the street and taught us all about the night sky?"

"I do remember." Lydi laid her hand on the boy's shoulder.
