Memorial Day Letters

We sat down with the kids.....yes on my messy bed.....and we each wrote letters to those we love who have passed away.  We shared our letters and talked about Jacob, Baby Jake, Grandpa, Grandma, Great Grandma, Carolyn and Emily.  We shared a few hugs and tears and then tied the letters to the balloons and let then drift into the heavens.  We made sure the kids understood that they would not actually receive the letters but knew we were thinking of them.  We don't live near the semitary and this was a really sweet experience and a good opportunity to discuss life and death...... and why we miss and love those we have lost.

I remember seeing the kids out there with balloons, that was such a great idea!
