Father's Day... again.

It is so hard to believe that this is the 5th year now. The kids and I have just returned home after leaving a flower at their daddy's grave. We released the annual message balloon, and for dramatic flair, Shelby drove the car around the cemetery to demonstrate what she has been learning now that she has her permit. And to think she was just an elementary school student when he left us...

The pain is no longer raw for any of us, but I know that the kids feel these little rituals keep them a bit closer to their dad, as do I.
