yet, another update.....

                                                                         being silly!

So I got a job last week. It has been really hard being away from the kiddies, but I need to help out the family. Olivia took her first 2 steps yesterday. That was such a cute, but depressing moment. She is growing way too fast! She will be 10 mths. old on the 9th. of August! It has gone so fast. 
Khydan & Kamdan are both having birthdays next month. We have their gifts done!  WHO-HOO!! Now I can start on Christmas!

I am still doing the weight loss. Although, I haven't really lost anymore weight since the 6lbs. But I have lost 3+ inches from my stomach, thighs, and so forth! I know, I am crazy for even talking about this. But, no one has ever called me a sane person!!! I have nothing to loose. I have to look at myself everyday. If I am not honest, then I will fail. 
Dan went into the studio to lay down some tracks. for a drummer to practice to. Hopefully, he will find a drummer that can keep up!

We will be home schooling the boys. We are doing the K12 program. Our school district offers it. That is so awesome!! We are really looking forward to that.

sorry I haven't posted in awhile. We went camping for a week to Fish lake, Ut. (it's by Capital reef National Park) it was very pretty and a great time with family. Dan's parents and his brother roger and his family went with us. 

I will have to post pics later. Our internet is having problems that the company is having trouble fixing. So it takes 20 mins to upload pics. So annoying!

I got a job. I will be working 3-4 nights a week. Not much, but at least it will buy groceries. 
I have lost 6 lbs.! Yeah. I am really excited about that. 
Khydan lost his first front top tooth. He pulled it out himself. GROSS! I don't do loose teeth, sick!
Olivia is standing on her own now. She also says bye & waves. She is getting way too big, too fast.
We got Khydan and Kamdan enrolled in the K12 program. It is a home schooling program through our public school system. It is really awesome. We have chosen German as our world language to learn as a family.  
Dan is keeping very busy with work. He is trying to squeeze in guitar time as much as possible. It is so nice to just relax and listen to him play. He is an amazing musician. 
Not much else is happening here. As soon as we have a better connection, I will post lots of pics.

Our Fourth of July

Dan had to work for most of the day. when he was finished we went to Main Street to enjoy the free splash park. we had a lot of fun. Here are some highlights.

Dan getting in on the fun.
Olivia had a blast!
just a cute moment.
I'm cold!
Khydan entered in the watermelon contest! No, he didn't win, but he had fun!!
After the splash park, we went to Dan's parents house for dinner and to watch the fireworks. We had a great day!

time to be accountable

Okay, so I had a thought last night as I was trying to fall asleep. I figured I would use my blog as a weight loss accountability. I will post updates weekly with all of the stats of my progress. My goal is to be down 25lbs. by my birthday, September 19. 

weight: 176
arms: 14 in
thighs: 25 in
hips: 43 in
waist: 43 in
upper stomach: 40 in

I know, SCARY!! I have been very unhappy for some time. I have tried to do this on my own, but I lose my motivation very easily. So this is going to help me keep my motivation. Comments are welcome, but only if they are positive ones. ;o)
I will post pictures monthly.
