MADDY AND KAILEY DECORATING EASTER EGGS WITH GRANDMA LINDA 4/14
Springtime has come and gone but it was a great season. We have now lived in our "new" home for over a year! Of course being us we are feeling a little stir crazy for something new, but no worries; I think we will hang on to her for awhile still. Kailey turned 4 in May, we a had a great little party with mostly family. She is feeling really stuck in the "middle" she wants to be "old" like Maddy or a "baby" like Avery. Avery is now 8 months and a little ball of fire, she is pulling herself around on her tummy and has learned how to sit up on her own. Her newest development is pulling her self up on everything! Uh-Oh watchout! It seems like she is cutting about 400 teeth and our happy little baby has been a little cranky lately. Madelyn is 5.5 and loving it. She is starting Kindergarten in the fall at Brooklake Christian School. I was imaging how she is going to look in her little uniform. I can't wait!
Also in May I took a job working for our friend, Dick Drenckpohl, part-time. I am loving it, it is a challenging job but it has been fun learning a new trade. Brad is continuing to work part-time in the Mortgage business and is doing great. He injured his knee in February and had only been working part-time at Fed-Ex until a few weeks ago. Our goal is for him to go part-time permanently there and spend the rest the time working from home doing loans.
June was a wonderful month, we took a short vacation to Ocean Shores with the Lowen family. We stayed in a great little cabin, the guys and the kids enjoyed playing on the beach and Janet, Avery and I had a great time shopping and drinking coffee!!! There is a new water park at the Ramada at Ocean Shores and the girls loved it. It was indoors and was layed out perfect for them.
At the end of June I got the chance to go to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with my Mom, Sisters and my cousins. It was amazing, the weather was warm and humid. Highlights of the trip were laying by the pool (Huhmmm) and traveling around visiting other beach areas near by.
The big news for July so far is that Brad and I just celebrated our 6th anniversary on July 9th. I can hardly believe that it has been so long since we took our vows, time has flown by. I always heard my parents saying that when I was younger and now I know how they felt. It must have something to do with having little ones who change so quickly.
