Easter Sunday is an amazing day for a baptism.  It is even more amazing when two of your grandchildren are getting baptized.  Grace & Ava gave their testimony, favorite verse, and answered a slew of questions.   They did an awesome job!

An early birthday present - a bat bag for an awesome player.


Easter egg hunt - counting their treasures.

It was fun getting together with the Liabenows, Websters, Luke Rumleys and Tim Rumleys.  We had to leave early because of youth group at our church.  Fun times!

We missed the Vastbinders, Stauches, and the Boltons.  Maybe next year?

Zachary has been doing science experiments with the grands.  They each had two cups of water, some food coloring, and shaving cream.  One bowl of water had shaving cream on top.  They put the food coloring in the other cup of water and slowly dropped the colored water on the shaving cream.  It was supposed to look like rain under the shaving cream.  I'm not sure it worked completely, but they sure had fun.

After the experiment was over, they decided to "play" in the mess.  I think they had more fun doing this than the experiment.  So much for the clean table cloth and the grands hands.  Notice Caleb left the scene when things started to get messy, ha!

It sure is fun to have the grands here each week.  Thanks, Zachary, for being willing to make a mess with the grands.

Today was the day!  Emily, Elyse & Lydia were amazing sales people.  Luke, Lacey, Grace, Caleb, Ava, Jaden, Kai, Gpa, Gma, Dan-O, Jackson & Judah were the shoppers.  Zachary kept getting texts on each item that was sold.  It was a great day!

The three famous sales people!

The amazing display!

Custom orders are always welcome!

It was a great day!  Gpa, Gma & Zachary (Zappy) enjoyed pizza with Luke's family.  Look for the next one in September!

Tonight at the Hudsonville High School Board meeting, Zachary was honored with 26 students for getting a 30 or better on the ACT.  These students are in the top 5% of the millions that took the test.  We are proud of you, Zachary.  You da man!  Here are some of the pictures:

Today was the first day of the last trimester of four years of high school for this handsome lad.  He is decked out in new shoes, handmade gloves, ancient backpack, and handsome as ever!  Enjoy!
