Ok, after much persuading from many people, I've decided to take the plunge and create our family blog. I'm sure I will be really great about updating it for the first week....then you may never hear from me again. :) Here's a bit of info to catch you up on the last 8 years...On July 8, 2008 Derek and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary!! It seems like only yesterday our little (ha!) family began. Brooklyn is now 7 and will be starting 2nd grade in the fall. Bella is 5 and is quite the big girl starting kindergarten! We are so happy that she has the same teacher Brooklyn had, as she is AMAZING!!! No word on Brooklyn's teacher yet. Brieyn is our spunky 2 year old, always being silly and making us laugh. She is hilarious! And little miss Bradyn is 2 months and getting to be more fun by the day. She has the biggest smile, complete with a sweet dimple! We love watching all our girls together, especially when they are all getting along (it doesn't happen often!). We are counting down the remainder of our summer days, once the kids start school our lives become crazy, including soccer for Brooklyn and Bella, and swim lessons for the older girls and Brieyn. Bella also takes dance with some very good friends, she is quite the wiggler. :) Derek works in medical supplies sales, and I work for a great company managing 2 properties in Pullman. We are an extremely busy family, but we wouldn't change one thing!
