A long time coming

I CANNOT believe I have allowed so much time to pass since my last posting. I do apologize, but I have to admit I have been terribly busy and well, the girls and I have been trying to enjoy our days by the pool. And once daddy gets home, we like to spend time together as a family, then once the girls are in bed...we are pooped!

So we did finally get moved, I think it was 3 weeks ago. It all happened so fast. We ended up in an apartment, which isn't all bad. It is only a 2 bedroom, but we couldn't justify the cost of an extra room when we don't have Gracie as much. So Gracie is super excited sharing a room with sissy. Although, I am not a huge fan. Seems to be the nights we have Gracie that Kins wakes up in the middle of the night, which means, Gracie wakes up too. And their room is cramped, but it will do for now, I have become very creative finding place to store things. That and my living looks like a toy store:) Oh well we are scacraficing space and saving money to get caught back up. This is definitely a temporary move, but I am enjoying not cleaning as much space, decorating, and the 3 pools in our complex. The good outweighs the bad, so we are still smiling!
Some of you may remember we were suppose to move into a townhouse, but that property mgmnt. co. was a nightmare. If you are in KC, DO NOT EVER do business with OWENS BUILT PROPERTIES. Day before we were getting keys, they screwed up big time and cost us over $140 for their mistakes, which they refused to reimburse us. Long story short...they do horrible business and we went our separate ways. I am much happier where we are anyways and we saved over $120 a month by going to the apartment.

I started my new cheer job. I am now the Assistant Cheer Coach at Kearney High School. I LOVE IT! These girls have such a GREAT work ethic. Last week we went to cheer camp and they did excellent, I was so proud of them. I even got to doing a little stunting myself. And let me tell you, MOMMA'S still got it:)

Jason continues to stay hard at work! Yesterday we got to spend the day with both of our families. At the end of the day we went to my parents where he got to throw the girls around in the pool. As much as he didn't want to get it I KNOW he LOVED every minute of it!

Gracie and Kinsley are doing great! Gracie is finishing up her swimming lessons, which she loves. She is now swimming like a dolphin:) She had volleyball camp last week and is doing incredible. They had a serving contest and she won! Tomorrow night is the true test, her first game and it's a double hitter, so it will be action packed.
And where should I start with Kinsley. Everyday that little girl amazes me more and more. I never knew how truly rewarding it is being with her everyday is. She makes me so proud. I swear the MY KID IS A GENIUS, as all parents do! She says many words on a daily basis. She uses words in the right context. She runs, she loves swimming, she loves going under water. There is not one food out there she doesn't like. She is great with shapes, she knows quite a few animal noises. She recognizes all her family. She LOVES/ADORES both her Papi's...which they cannot get enough of her either! When she makes messes with her toys or my tupperware bowls, she loves to help clean up. She will take things to Daddy if I ask her too, or anyone for that matter. If we say take this whatever to whoever she does it. Overall she sleeps GREAT! I guess I could go on and on, but I want to post pics for you to enjoy as well...I will let you see for yourselves!

Good to hear from you. I'm glad you got moved and settled.

I cannot believe Kinsley is already doing all those things. It is amazing how fast time flies by and these children grow up so fast right before our very eyes.

I cant wait to see new pictures.
