Good grief, where have I been????

I have been a sorry blogger here lately. Between facebook and Jokers to keep up with my Big Brother obsession, and just life in general with my kids and family I have left little time for much else!

I guess the biggest news going with me is that I am ready to go back to work! GASP!! I didn't think I would ever say that but I am! I have thought long and hard about it and it is time for me to get back into the real world, and for the kids to experience being with someone else besides mommy and daddy 24/7. Sure they get interaction at church but that is just one day a week. And I really would like to get out and have some adult interaction of my own! So truth be told, my reason may be a little selfish, but I really do think the whole family will benefit from this change. Now the hard part of finding a job. We have been really blessed to find a babysitter who is just minutes from our house and keeps a few kids that are both Kyndall and the twins ages. So there will be a chance for each of them to be around other kids their age. Now I am just waiting for the phone to ring from one of the several applications that I have put in! I am praying that something will pan out soon, cause I would really hate to lose this babysitter!

Since I have been a bad blogger I will share a few pics of some of the fun stuff we have had the chance to do in the month of July! We love summer! So here are a few more things we have done this month:

I got Kyndall's hair cut off!!!! It is as short as she has ever worn it! I am still adjusting to it, but her daddy loves it. This particular picture was taken at Faye and Pa's. Kyndall is actually riding Faye's horse Skywalker, but you can't tell cause Jordan was afraid to let her loose and back up to take the pic! Good thinkin' daddy! We had all gotten together for a real family dinner, Jordan's dad was even up from Texas. The kids all had a big time and Kyndall was so upset when it was time to go home! She is such a country girl!

We have a "for sale by owner" sign in our yard finally! After lots of talk and decision making, we finally put it up! Not much action yet, but we are hoping it will pick up soon!

Kyndall competed with her first batch of big girls in the Allen County Fair Pageant. She was grouped with 2,3, and 4 year olds! Although she didn't get a trophy, she did an amazing job on stage! She did her smile and wave like she practices and blew kisses to everyone! To my surprise she even did a cute little twirl a few times! She was so great! This pic is her and her bestie Hayden Grace before they went back for their competition! Aren't they the cutest!

Claire got second place in the Allen County Fair Pageant! She was a dream on stage....smiling, waving, and walking out all by herself! She is a lover of all eyes on her for sure!

We went to our first wedding as a family of 5!! Ali Bomar and Joseph McReynolds had a beautiful ceremony is Fountain Run! The wedding was gorgeous, but keeping the kids quiet was exhausting! That will be that last one for us for awhile!

So that is just a brief look at what has been keeping us so busy this past month! Can't believe that summer is winding down and fall will soon be here. Seems like the older I get the faster the days go! Hope everyone is doing well. I will try to be a better blogger, but I am not making any promises!! LOL!

Sounds like life is keeping you pretty busy! Cute pictures you've got there! I might end up having to go back to work as well, but out of need, rather than out of desire to get out of the house. Good luck to you! Hopefully you can find a great job!
Take care!
