Connecting

 It has been a really rough week in the Pohlman house.  My father-in-law has been in the hospital since last Saturday.  His situation seems to change almost daily.

One thing I am adamant about is being honest with the kids.  I've been giving them updates as I get them and trying to help them understand what is happening with grandpa.  It's hard for everyone.  They are so close to him, there is no way for me to hide it or sugar coat it, not that I would want to.

On top of that, we have been unbelievably busy.  It's hard to spend quality time together when everyone seems to be running in different  directions.

 
Yesterday was the most perfect day.  Even though Steve was gone, we spent the day connecting as a family.  We didn't do anything special.  We played outside, ate ice cream and read Charlotte's Web on a blanket under a tree.  We needed it.  It was one of those days that I think I'll always remember and strive to recreate.  

What would I do without these four?  They are everything.
