Location: Quito, Ecuador
The expression “April showers bring May flowers,” came into mind many times during the weeks that followed the birth of Grace Erin Meier. It certainly seemed that we were getting enough rain in Quito during that month to water the May flowers of several countries. Although Grace’s memory bank will not be able to remember those first couple months of her life, her mother will not forget them.
It is hard to believe that spring has so quickly slipped into summer and we are now preparing to make our next big move. It has been nearly three years since we moved to Quito, Ecuador on July 31, 2008, with a 12 month old boy and a few suitcases.
Now, we are preparing to leave with a nearly 4 year old boy, his 2 ½ year old brother, their nearly 3 month old sister and quite a few more suitcases. Please visit the posts below to find out more about our big move to Lake Jackson, Texas, and some of the adventures we’ve had in the past few months.
