Well it has been a long time since I last blogged. We are back in school. Both the girls are enjoying their teachers and classes. All the kids are in Gymnastics and love every minute of it. Hannah and Morgan go 2x a week and Kali and Logan one time a week. Kali loves the trampoline and Logan loves "the pit".
We have about 8 more months in North Carolina and hope to find out where we will be heading for the next 3 years in December. Pray that it is some where in the WEST!!!
October will be a busy month for us. I have a triathlon, Jay leaves for a month to Cincinati, we have a family trip planned to Bucsh Gardens, and Morgan will be starting Pre-team in gymnastics and of course Halloween!!! Hopefully we'll get some pictures posted of everything.

Oh what to do in the Summertime...

Well my blog and facebook account have really been hurting. I began teaching swimming lessons in June and I haven't had a free moment since. We have had several happenings since I blogged last, a few birthdays, a family reunion, a new dog, and summer break. Here are some pictures and hopefully I will be able to write again soon!

So what's new?

Kali and Logan- Impossible to get a picture together with them both looking at the camera, but they love to pose by themselves!

This last month has really been busy. Since we moved into this house, we seem to find something new everyday that is broken or not working. I think I have had a repair man at the house everyday for a week and a half. We finally started getting some "summer weather" and that's when we realized the AC didn't work. It's been a week and it's still not working, but the good news is I think I have sweated off 5 pounds! LOL

I am excited because I am starting swim lessons next month. We have a nice pool so I decided to make good use of it an offer lessons. I wasn't expecting to make a whole lot, but since I put up my signs, my phone has not stopped ringing. I am amazed at how many adults are calling me for lessons. Who knew so many people couldn't swim!

The kids are doing really well. Morgan and Hannah are enjoying their new school and both are doing very well. Logan and Kali are best buddies and are giving me a run for my money. Jay has started taking the kids fishing when he gets off work. We have a pond behind the house that I wasn't sure had any fish in it, but they have caught Bass and Bluegill and love to go fishing! Notice what Hannah is holding in the bucket... That kid will touch anything! She is quite the animal lover. We have giant slugs that come out at night and she will pick them up and move them out of the way so nobody steps on them...eeewwww.

Although not with family, we had a fun Easter. We had our friends over for dinner and did an egg hunt with the kids. Jay and Dominic hid the eggs. Most of they had candy in them but there was a surprise in one. They caught a frog and replaced the candy with a frog. Hunter found the egg and was not really happy about the frog inside!

We're In!

We finally got moved in to the new house and are trying to get settled and out of boxes. The kids love the new house. I love it too, just not all the dirt, bugs, and frogs. I was cleaning out the pool today and reached in to grab the strainer basket and grabbed hold of a frog. YUCK! The frogs don't bother the kids, Logan won't touch them but he likes to watch Hannah and Morgan catch them. Hannah has "loved" three frogs to death so far. Not to worry, we have millions. I have been told that is a good thing. If you have a lot of frogs, you don't have snakes. I'll take the frogs anyday over one snake.

Hannah had a birthday last month. She is now my big Six year old. She had a party at a jump house with a few of her friends.

G.G. came to visit us while we were packing and moving. She helped me with the packing and taking care of the little monsters. The kids loved having her here. Logan still asks "where GG go?"

Life is Getting CrAZy!!!

This is just a quick update because I haven't posted anything for a while. We finally sold the house, Hooray!!!! We are closing on the 20th of March and will be moving to our rental house on the 15th. We are really excited and sad. The new house will be a lot of fun for us. It has a great yard with a pool, basketball court, and lots of places to explore. It is actually bigger than the house that we are in now, but it is an older house. It will be close to the kids new school, church, and Jay's work and best of all it is less expensive than where we are now. We are really going to miss our house and neighborhood firends, but know that this will be better for us in the long run. Well that's about all for know, hopefully I will have some new pictures and stories to post soon.

Wrestle Mania

Logan and Kali love to wrestle. Kali usually ends up crying, but I think she got the upper hand in this particular match. Notice her sneak attack...

Frosty the Snowman

The girls were excited to be able to make a snowman this year. The first day the snow did not pack very well, but after two days of melting they made good use of what was left. The nose is the traditional carrot, but the eyes were made of crumb doughnuts, very resourceful girls...
