Having grandparents live far away can be hard. I have accepted the fact that my children will not have as close of relationships as I had with my grandparents, it sucks, but it is something that is part of modern life (although, skyping, email, etc. do help to ease the distance). It is especially nice when they do visit and spend some time with them. This Saturday, Grandpa came to visit and got to help Michael out with his clarinet.
