I'm Back!

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. This first month back to work has been a little hectic with open house, preparing for testing, and all my GATE responsibilities. Everything is going well. We are all just really busy.

Kalena continues to participate in Girl Scouts and soccer. We tried a new club soccer team for a short time, although she wasn't having the fun she did with AYSO. Club soccer is a huge financial and time commitment, so we decided to register for AYSO again in the fall. She begged me to be her coach again and of course I couldn't say no. Kalena is doing really well in school and has made huge growth since moving to Corona Ranch with me. It has been great to see her every day and to be able to spend some Kalena and Mommy time on the way to and from school. She is such a good girl! I feel so blessed!

Kulia tried ballet this past month and the key word here is tried. She talked about it for months. She was very excited and couldn't wait to start. The day we tried the class was a totally different story. She was excited to walk go in, but once she realized that they were closing the door and I had to stay outside, it was all over. She cried and cried. It was horrible! We stayed and watched the rest of the class and she attempted to go in again without me, but that only lasted a minute. Well, I wasn't about to give up so easy, so I took her back to a 3 and 4 year old tap class and again she cried and cried. I guess we will have to wait until she matures a little. She is so different than Kalena was at this age. I don't know if it is because she has been through so much (being sick) or I have really babied her. It is probably a combination of both. O'well we will get there! Physically she is doing much better. We went to see Dr. Mohrdar for a recheck and she grew 1 in. in 2 months. The previous 5 months she only grew 1/4 of an inch. Her coloring has improved, also. She now has pink cheeks and no circles around her eyes. She eats meat and has been really good about taking her supplements. Also, she is no longer on any pharmaceutical drugs. She had been on them since she was 1. It is so nice not to have to do breathing treatments anymore! Yeah!!! Of course, she is taking supplements, but they are all natural with no side effects. I love it!

Kunane is busy coaching golf and continues to coach football. They can now practice year around (lucky us), so he is gone on Thursday nights for practice. He still enjoys it and that is what counts.

We have taken a camping trip once a month with different groups of friends and have been having a blast! We are so blessed to have so many wonderful friends with great families that we can spend time with. We are going to Vail Lake for Mother's Day and are really looking forward to it.

We hope all is well with you! Hopefully, it won't take as long send another update!
