Happy Birthday, Megan!

It's Megan's birthday on Sunday March 30th!! Megs always looked forward to her birthday parties, just hanging out with friends, having scavenger hunts, etc. There were even a couple of years when Matt's band (with Matt G. & Scott) played at the party!! Loads of fun.

Megan had an assignment in 8th grade to put together a book which was titled All About Megan. I found and read the book after she passed away. It is a treasure. On the front cover she glued the following saying:

TO SEE IN THE WORLD" Mahatma Gandhi

I have thought so much about this saying since I found it in her book. It is a beautiful statement and I am happy that it touched her. All of our lives have changed so much since Megan died. I know that parents hug their kids more, and I know that kids hug their parents more as well. It has opened up alot of dialogue in families and has made them closer. We know what is important in life. We cherish the good times and get through the not-so-good times. Through it all, we miss Megan more than words can ever explain.

Happy Birthday, Meg! We love you!! Mom, Dad, Matt & Madison

Here are some photos from Sunday's get together at Megan's Grove!

After the longest, darkest, coldest winter on record (at the Myers house anyway), signs of Spring are in the air. There is new growth everywhere we turn. The weather is warmer. The trees in Megan’s Grove at LN Regional Park are starting to get their leaves!
It was 6 months ago today that Megan died unexpectantly. I still can’t believe it. Our life is now so different without Megan. Today I want to spend my time thinking about Megs (like I do every other day), but I also want to think about all the things that I am so grateful for! (Check out the photo for two examples of what I am grateful for!!!!) I encourage you to do the same! Gail

Vote Postponed Until April Board Meeting!

One of the Board Members had to leave early due to health reasons, so the issue could not be voted on tonight! The good news is that the Board Members and Superintendent Carter had positive things to say about the plan, so I am sure that it will pass next month!!!
I want to thank everyone who e-mailed the Board Members with your input! I am happy that they know that the community is very supportive of this plan!!
The next meeting will be in April, and I will update this site with the outcome of the vote!!!
