It's so easy sometimes to think about all the negative things in our life. Now that we've been so busy lately, its been really easy for me to get wrapped up in all of the bad things in life. But as I'm sitting in my beautiful new yard and enjoying the views, I decided to take a deep breath and focus on how wonderful my life really is! I am blessed beyond belief and so thankful for it!! Here are some updates on our amazing journey...
KENNY-has been working for a wonderful man named John for the last several months and I think he's really enjoyed it. It gets him out of the house and he gets some extra cash out of it. His back is still bothering him but I think we've come to realize that the pain is never going to go away. It's taken a toll on Kenny emotionally. Being a man in your 30's and not being to do what other "normal" men can, is a real bruise to the ego. I try to remind him as often as I can that he is a AMAZING dad and that what is is doing; molding and shaping our kids in to these awesome little beings; is far better than any "normal" job out there!!
LEVI-started Kindergarten in September and seems to be enjoying it much better than last year. We decided to hold him back and give him another year to mature and its looking to be a good decision. He also is playing soccer through the boys and girls club and loves it! His favorite position is goalie and he is very good at it! I'm thinking about putting both the boys in swimming lessons after soccer season is over, got to keep that swimming legacy alive! :)
RILEY-has gotten so unbelievably big, I can barely remember him being a toddler or a baby! He is the same size as Levi; they share the same clothes and shoes! :) He practices with Levi at soccer practice but unfortunately can't play at any of the games. He is definitely our loud, outgoing child. I can see struggles ahead as he gets older..lol
TAYLOR-just turned 1 September 18th! That was the quickest year of my life, no doubt about that!! She is walking and babbling like crazy. She looks like Levi and I but has Kenny and Riley's personality..the teenage years should be very interesting!! She is very much a girl tho and loves to put on shoes and new clothes and usually can be found carrying around a purse!

So it's been a while! :) Where to start...hmmm? Well here's what I'm doing right now. I am of course a wife and mom..I'm also coaching Levi's soccer team. 8 six and seven years running around a field kicking a ball, its pretty entertaining! I am working 2 jobs, I'm a cook at A&W on the weekends and I am doing books for Valley View Trucking Shop. I just started school at the end of September. I am taking 12 credits and this term is more challenging than Summer term. I am taking Medical Terminology, Editing for Information Processing, Medical Orientation, Formatting, Keyboarding, and Window and Computer Fundamentals. Haha..that's a mouthful huh?! We also just moved..again! :) We have a awesome house, it has a beautiful view and is on a good size lot. Life is pretty good right now, very busy..but I wouldn't have it any other way! Whats new with you all?
