Well it hasn't gotten to be any smoother this week either. Saturday night around 6:40PM Coltan and Cody's grandfather peacefully left us and went to Heaven. He was surrounded by Chris and his brother, sisters, and mother. Services will be tomorrow and Wednesday. I'm not quite sure if it has really hit my boys yet and I'm hoping that they can understand. Grandpa Jerry was always at their soccer games, took them out of town this past January, and loved to teach the boys some golfing tips. I know that we have lost a few other family members but Jerry was by far the closest to my boys, so the impact of this will hit them a lot harder. I'm really sad for Chris as well. I could never imagine losing one of my parents and I know that these next few weeks/months are going to be very challenging for him.
Yesterday was Cheyenne's BIG 1 birthday. Chey is Chris and Jessica's little girl and Coltan and Cody's half sister. My mother went to Gates BBQ and bought them some food and we made a cake for her as well. That way the Hoffman family doesn't have to worry about preparing for the birthday and a funeral.
Today went kind of smooth. Carson and I did have to take a car ride and he was very upset during the whole ride. He kept asking me not to bang my car.....he is still frightened over the wreck and I hope that the more we get in the car, the more comfortable he will be.
Just like everything else in my life, this too shall pass.
