There just isn't enough time....

Ok so I am really bad at blogging. I just never seem to have time to sit down and write/post pictures. So I am often really far behind on my blogging but I do keep up with everyone else. So lets see...what's been going on with us??? Grady is almost done with his first year of preschool. The girls are all over the place. Catie is finally walking (at 16 months) My parents were here so we went to Disneyland & Sea World. I went to master Nationals in May and placed 6th in the 100 back. We are looking forward to some down time and possible doing some traveling this year. I have been swimming 6 days a week along with a dryland (a workout such as squats, crunches, etc. for you non swimmers) program. I started doing hot yoga once a week. I am back down to my pre-baby size!! And Lea, Robert & Jaxon moved back to CO last week.

The girls took the same course Grady too last year. But they are much younger then he was. It's amazing that at 18 & 15 months they can swim and float. It is worth every penny I have spent on swim lessons to know that they could save themselves if they feel in a pool (even fully clothed)!!! So here is Abigail swimming

Better late then never!

So I am not so good at blogging. I never seem to have enough time to sit down and type. But I guess late is better then never. So lets see...December was filled with the holidays. My mom, dad and two brothers came down for 2 weeks. So our house was full, 8 adults and 4 little kids. We had a great time. We did some shopping, hit Disneyland a few times, played with the kids and had a good Christmas.
Jan we celebrated Catie & Jaxon's first birthdays! The rest of the month was filled with trying to find a new house. Since we can't get a jumbo loan to buy the house we want, we bought another rental property and are renting a bigger house! So this will be the 9th move for me in 9 years, Crazy. The good thing is we don't have to be out of our current house til the end of the month. And we have the keys for the new place already. So we have some time to move but still a pain with 3/4 little kids. But we are really excited cause the neighborhood is so great. Grady has 3 friends from preschool who live on the street. So we are looking forward to a family friendly neighborhood which we have never had. Also this month...I will be competing in my first swim meet in about 5 yrs. It should be fun, a bunch of friends are going to the meet too. And at the end of the month we will all be heading to Oregon! So a busy month is ahead of us. I hope everyone is doing well! I will post pictures soon from the holidays and everything else!
