Try tapping out the rhythmic values to the notes at slow speed but leave out the grace notes. When you've got the rhythm down add the melodic values to the notes, still leaving out the grace notes. Finally, when you have the rhythm and melody securely in your head, add the grace notes. The first and third go down a half step, the second one goes up a half step. They should fit right in without adding any time value to the measure, just a momentary "ti-yah" onto the eighth note, speech-like, almost as if you hit the wrong note and quickly corrected yourself. Hope this helps.
