A couple weeks ago Dave and Matt took the kids for some sled rides behind the snowmobiles. The kids were so excited and had a lot of fun, especially telling Dave to "Go faster". Jenna and Gracie donned some shades to keep the cold air off their eyes....pretty stylish sledders if I say so myself.
Thank goodness Grandma Sandy bought a big sled so all four could ride together. Grace, Jenna, Jacob and Hannah all rode together and it worked quite well.
How can Garrett be 6 months old already. I know I sound like a broken record but seriously time is flying and he is growing so fast! He's had some pretty big firsts in the last month including the not so fun being sick for the first time. He also got his first two teeth! He loves his cereal and baby food and finds it rather entertaining to make motorboat sounds and see how much of it he can spit on the poor person feeding him. He sits up all by himself and loves playing with toys in front of him....plus he can keep a better watch out for his sister trying to sneak up to bug him. It's so cute to see him put his little arms in the air if he wants you to pick him up. We don't have his 6 month appointment until next week but when he was sick and we had him to the doctor he was 20lbs 3ozs. It's so fun to watch him grow and learn...just love this little man!
The journey of the Kapenga/Meyer clan officially began on 8.8.08. Jenna was already 3 at the time and in September of 2009 we welcomed Garrett in our family. We are now eagerly anticipating the arrival of #3 in May 2011! I love being a mom to Jenna and Garrett. These two precious little people remind me daily of what really matters in life. I have been blessed to continue my marketing career by working from home as a marketing consultant with Image Builders Marketing (although working from home with kids does come with challenges). Dave is a toolmaker at Drawform. We live in Zeeland and love being close to family and friends to share the adventure of life with!
