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!
