I Know I Am A Terrible Blogger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sorry that I have not kept up with our blog! I can barely keep up with life most of the time! By the time the evening comes around...I am all out of steam!

Update on the King Family -

David is working at Weir Mesa Manufacturing as the materials manager. It is very busy as the oil field is going great this season! He is also the ward executive secretary at church. When not at work...he enjoys being with his family and beating us all at every game we play! He is that darn good!

Laurel is the 2nd counselor in the primary organization at church. Along with that she stays very busy with the four girls (running them around to their different activities & trying to keep the peace), her vinyl lettering business, zumba classes as well as doing some transcription/dictation for a local doctor in the area. She has been batteling swelling in her foot along with the constant neck problems that she has. Maybe she stays so busy so she won't have time to feel the pain...unfortunately the pain seems to find her when it is time to go to sleep....grr!

Ashley spent the 1st part of the summer playing the part of a Bolin sister in the community play of "Annie". We (her parents) have decided that will be the last time she is in a play until she can drive herself to all the not. We will see! She really did love it and it was exciting to see her on stage and perform in front of a different audience each time. The middle of the summer was spent babysitting a neighbor family (for the month of July) while their mom finished up her school courses. She enjoyed earning some extra money and even purchased an iTouch and her first clothes outfit. She has enjoyed having extra money. She has enjoyed taking voice lesson's this past year and earned a class I in her solo/ensemble in choir. She earned straight A's all year long as well.

Briana has spent the whole summer involved in gymnastics. She has been training 9 hours a week and really loves the sport! She recently learned her round off back handspring and her coaches say she is an absolute "beast" on the vault and bars....I think that means she is She was in the honor choir at school and earned straight A's all year long as well as not being absent AT ALL during the whole school year.

CJ has become such a little reader. When not with friends, she can be found sitting in the corner reading a book. She has also developed a thing for texting with her moms phone. She participated in her first piano recital this year and while it was very nerve racking for her...she did very well!

Danielle (or Dani as her fellow gymnasts and coaches call her) has also found a love for gymnastics. She has a great natural talent for the sport. She has won numerous contests involving handstands and long-hang pullovers on the high bar. She even beat the varsity gymnasts in the pullovers. Her coaches can't wait until she is old enough to be on the competing teams. As well as gymnastics...she also participated in her 1st piano recital and did very well. Her feisty attitude and stubborness continue to make her parent's hair turn grey!

All in All, the King family has been doing great! Even if we don't find the time to post! We love you All!

I just wanted to post a quick update on our family since I don't seem to get on here enough. Here is the run down --

David is enjoying work at Weir Mesa, and when not there working, stays busy as the executive secretary at church.

Laurel has picked up a job doing medical transcription on the side so while the kids are at school, she is working from home. When school ends...she is running around with kids to gymnastics or other meetings. She is one of the activity day girls leaders at church.

Ashley loves being a 7th grader at Bonham. I was really worried about her starting Jr. High but she has loved it from day one and has met a few good friends that she shares classes and lunch with. She decided to take gymnastics as an elective this year, as well as choir and AVID. She is also taking an after school gymnastics class 3 days a week with her sisters. She loves Young Women and singing with the church choir.

Briana loves being a 5th grader at Milam Elementary. She made the gymnastics team and her 1st gymnastics meet will be on September 29th. She also auditioned and was selected for the Milam Ministrel choir. For their P.E. classes at Milam...they have the option of taking dance, so Briana will also be learning Ballet & Hip Hop this year. She loves Activity Days and is also taking the after school gymnastics classes 3 days a week.

CJ is our little 3rd grader and will also be taking Hip Hop and Ballet this year. She is also taking piano at Milam once a week. She loves activity days & gymnastics after school with her sisters.

Danielle is having a harder time with going to kindergarten. It is a very long day compared to what she has been used to. With Milam being a Magnet school, they don't get out until 4:15 pm. She cried the 1st 2 weeks but I think we may have found the key...We decided to let her buy ice-cream at lunch everyday if she goes happily without crying. Except for a few tears...this has worked pretty good. She is impressing all of her gymnastic coaches (after school) with her natural talent in the sport. She will be learning Ballet at school this year but she has stated that she does not want to "perform" in front of the parents for their recital. I don't know if that is part of their grade or we shall see what happens when that time comes.

That is our update in a nutshell. Hope all is well with you guys! We love and miss all of you!
