Words to live by...

From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessing after

Remember who you are and you will walk through life blessed and beautiful

When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things

Children are a gift from God

Never underestimate the power of prayer

Fell off the face of this earth

Okay, so not really, but the blog has been seriously suffering (sorry to those who actually follow this thing). I've been meaning to update it, but it just never happens. So, here goes with what's been happening with Team Meyers. The first photo sums up how Reece feels about thunderstorms (or really loud noises for that matter). We told him he could hide in his bed so he would feel safe.........well, not so much a bed, but a definite place to sleep. Yes, he did curl up UNDER the kitchen rug and fall asleep AND remain asleep for about an hour! In other news, Reece will be going in tomorrow (Monday) for an x-ray and ultrasound for his (assumed to be benign Baker's cyst behind the knee). This has not bothered him, but the pediatrician would like a second opinion just to be precautious. Please pray these procedures do not find anything out of the ordinary. Jackson is doing well since his tubes were inserted a month ago. His ears have remained infection-free, but he is already back on an antibiotic for a sinus infection. It seems my youngest two are prone to those things. He is also talking more and is hilarious to watch as he tries to keep up with his older brothers. Lucas is playing soccer and t-ball this spring and taking gymnastics. He scored his first game-goal last weekend. T-ball games start this week (I have yet to see him participate in this as Tim brings him to those practices). He seems to do really well in gymnastics. We attended the gym in Allendale and just recently switched to the one in Hudsonville that I practiced at (Gymnastiks Unlimited). Although there are no familiar faces there, I am happy with our decision to switch. He seems to enjoy this the most. Right now it's just an "exposure" time for him as we determine his talents. Reece will be able to play soccer next year and is looking forward to that!

We've also been blessed with some wonderful SPRING weather. The days of sunshine have been cherished around here. We spent Friday garage-saleing and then picnicking at a local park with a very fun playground (think it's the highest enclosed slide my boys have been on). They absolutely loved it! I'm so glad to see those garage sale signs out again!

The beginning of spring also marks the blooming of the butterflies at FM Gardens in GR. We have a family membership and definitely get our use out of it. I know I've stated in previous blog posts that this is a wonderful investment.............I still agree!!!! We saw a few new (to us at least) kinds of butterflies this year.

One even landed on Jackson's back while grandma was holding him long enough I was able to capture it (with my camera that is).

One even landed on grandma's bangs.........and stayed long enough for me to capture that one as well! Grandma was less than thrilled to pose with this winged creature for me :)

Hope everyone is enjoying this spring season!!!
