Thank you for the additional information. An important thing to remember and advise him of, is that the court order is still going to control. While he is entitled to his parenting time, if the order states the pick up and drop off spot is at a school, then that is where it needs to happen. Of course, it is at your discretion to meet in the middle or at another locations but you are only obligated to comply with the court order. Moreover, you, as the mother
, need to act in the best interest of the children. If they are still morning the loss of their grandfather and you also have a counselor saying one of the boys needs to be home at this time, you may have to resist sending them. In an ideal situation, you would still honor the 5 days, since he did send the children back and did not get his full time. This can always be at a later date. However, if you did not, he would need to go back to court and let the Judge decide. Seeing how he lives out of State and there could be issues with him moving and violating the order, he may not be inclined to do anything and may be willing to work with you, if you present him with a reasonable alternative.
