Long long time no blog!!!

Wow have been a bad blogger or what.  We have been pretty busy as always this summer.  The girls have dance, Cambry has soccer and we go swimming a lot.  But the main change is Brady is Waco M-F for work so that is hard.  Thank goodness for the gym and their wonderful childcare center.  They also have an amazing pool that we use all the time. 
We went to visit my best friend Meghan who lives in Kentucky and has 2 girls who are 5 and 2 and all the girls just loved each other.  They ask to go back all the time.  I want to go back too but I wish it was easier. 
We just finished having the cousins here for like 2 or 3 weeks.  That is always so much fun.  We get to do some awesome stuff when they are here like the circus, Splashtown, movies, swimming, bowling and of course just visiting with everyone.
And the biggest news of all is we are expecting another child via the foster care system.  We are finally getting our license tomorrow and then we will be in the pool to get our sweet girl.  We are requesting a child from the age range of 6-9 and hope to get like a 6 or 7 year old girl.  We hope to get her before school starts but we are just leaving all this in the Lords hands because we HAVE TO.  Brady heard the Lord speak to him Feb. 5th at church and we obeyed and have done all the steps in order to get that sweet girl.  The girls are very excited as are we.  Just nervous but we have such a wonderful family and support system that we want to share with another child. 
I will do my best to be a better blogger but enjoy some pics!!!                                                      Celebrating Memorial Day

We love our new house. We rented out ours and are renting this one. We have an 18 month lease and so our renters. We called back to switch to a 3 year and our renters want a 3 year lease! Moving is no fun!! So we will see. Our goal is to keep our old house to the market recovers or to keep long term as an investment property. We will see how it plays out. Right now we are just enjoying this beautiful house!
