Our Trip back to Indiana

Friday morning we received a phone call that my grandfather in IN. was not doing well. They were calling the family in. Daniel and I were scheduled to fly out on Sunday to see him, but they felt this  would not be soon enough. So on Friday morning we booked tickets for the whole family to fly to IN to see my Grandpa one more time. As soon as the kids arrived home from school we left MA for the CT airport. We were the family that no one wants to be with on our first flight. Daniel screamed most of the way and Benjamin was vomiting. Tom and Benjamin were covered in vomit. The flight attendants were not very friendly to our family. We flew to Georgia. The second flight was much better. We flew in to IN. We were able to spend the weekend with family and visit all 3 of my grandparents. Daniel met his Great Grandparent for the first time. Flying home was much better also. We flew through MI, which made much shorter flights. So we were in 5 states this weekend. My Grandpa is still hanging in there, if we are lucky we will see him again at Christmas. We are taking the train to IN on the 23rd of December. Thank you for all of the prayers.
