Its been a while...

Ok it has been a while since I posted. I can't believe how time gets aways from me. Alot has happened and that just goes with having 5 kids and a husband that never stops.
We are enjoying fixing up our home. Clay let me buy paint for mothers day to paint the inside of the house. It was fun painting with my husband. School is out now and I am glad. I like to have my kids home with me.(although today I wouldn't have cared if they were gone).
We have been busy with ballgames and just the running around that goes on. Clay and I were lucky enought to take Keltcee and Rylee to a Diamondback game. It was alot of fun to see the girls when they saw the big field. They were in amazement. We don't get to do some much alone with them and so it was alot of fun just to spend time and visit with them.
Clay has been working very hard, he LOVES his job and sorry for those that have been seeing him more than me..haha.. I have to laugh at all the people that say" I ran into your husband the other day" I just laugh and say sorry.. they are all really good about it.
Just to tell you a little what is going on with each of us.. Sierra ( my niece that lives with us) just graduated high school. I love having her here, but it is a change going from Keltcee being 10 to my oldest being 18.. I will definelty be doing thing different with my girls and enjoy things with them alot more. Sierra is such a great girl that has not had a great life. We are glad that she trusted us enough to come live with us. We love you Sierra.
Keltcee is 10 going on 16 now that Sierra lives here. She loves to have her hair done and be all dolled up. The problem is that she looks older than Sierra. Clay doesn't like it all and isn't looking forward to the coming years. I want to congratulate Keltcee on making the ALL STAR team in baseball. She is a good little player and dang it won't be able to play due to a broken left foot she recieved by jumping on the trampoline with Rylee..
Rylee is 8 almost 9 and is PROUD of the fact she is the one that broke Keltcees foot. Rylee is going in for surgery on July 2. She is having her tonsills and adnoids out. Poor thing has been very sick and I thought she just had allergies.
Kennedee is full of life, but if it is not happening for her it is not happening for any of us.. She keeps us going. She is so excited to be in the 1st grade. I was reading on the report her teacher is sending to the first grade teacher and in big letters it said (SENSITIVE PERSONALITY).. I wasn't quite sure how to take that..haha.. She is 6 going on 21...
Tate.. my big boy.. Tate will be 5 in August and is just short of 55 pounds.. He is a TANK..He is so sensitive and a loving kid. He LOVES to tease his sisters and reminds me of my brother teasing when I was little.. OH NO!! (deanne and Leanna can relate).
Gavin is 2 and is in his 2's full force. He is a MONSTER. He is on the go all the time. He no longer takes naps and just wants to be one of the big kids. He is into everything and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I love all my kids and I love my husband. I am not the perfect mom and am always learning. I am trying to just do what I can do.. I have some pictures that I need to download and will post more.
