So...it's 2 days away, but it's still so hard to believe that my "baby" is going to be 9 yrs old. She's absolutely so sweet and such a great helper. I know that I don't give her the credit she deserves, but I really would be lost with out my Bear! She's doing great in school and softball. If I could just get her to not fight with her brother then we'd be golden. She's so excited for 4th grade with hopes of a certain teacher, but as a mom I know she'll do just fine with whomever she gets. Anyways, we've decided to do a simple bday at concert in the park. Lots of family and friends will be there which will be nice. She's asking for gift cards this year because she wants to be able to buy her own stuff. (I think she just wants to swipe them like credit cards!) hahaha Anyways, she's just the sweetest most helpful and humblest girl and I'm proud of who she's become.
**It's been so long since I've been on here. Lots happening...Another work year has come and gone. Like I mentioned Sky will be in 4th grade....Upper grade none the less!!! I can't believe it. She's in 10&under now and still kickin ass. This summer was really about Kapono since he was finally old enough to take on activities! He did a tiny tots sports class which involved soccer, basketball and baseball. He LOVED it and was so good at it. He's super cordinated and such a go getter. He also took a summer school preschool class. He's first experience with a school setting. 1 time out in 9 weeks was way better then what I expected so for that I'm proud. He'll be enrolling in preschool again come Sept. Currently we're in the midst of his other summer adventure....Hip Hop dance. Oh man can he rock it. He's the only 3 yr old in the class, but he doesn't miss a beat! His big performance is on 8/29 at Incahoots in Fullerton!! Can't wait to see his tootsie roll and dips!! Monday both Skyler and Pono will take on the last adventure of summer....SWIM LESSONS. Skys already a pro but Pono's a water lover with no idea how to stay afloat! Should be interesting especially since it's a mommy and me class!! Good Lord. Summer was also full of other excitement. My dad had his knee replaced. Jr quit smoking. Stacy found out she was pregnant with a girl. I started the process to a healthier life with quick fixes but I'm ok with that. Everyone needs a quick fix in their life wheather it be for health or marital bliss. ;) Last but not least I can't for get to talk about my Keni mama mia!! She's about to be 1!!! Can you believe it?! She, today, started walking. Like really walking. She's been my strangest kid by far all the way from her lack of crawling to her seriousness to her wild unmanagable hair!!! She's her dad in demeanor and her mom in appearance! She's brought us all such joy and I just can't believe that my last baby is already turning a year old.
Anyways, that was just a quick update on the crazy life I live on a daily. It's becoming non stop running around, but my gosh it's the most enjoyable thing I've ever been apart of and I couldn't imagine it any other way!

It's been a long year since Kapono turned 2. I thought for sure by 2 he would be potty trained! Absolutely not the case. He is 3 and is just now interested in peeing in the big boy potty! It's the absolute cutest thing ever. I love the boxer briefs he wears. He yells, "mom I gotta go pee NOW!" He even played an aprils fool day prank on me. He told me he pooped in his underwears. I said oh no and he said aprils fools! He's seriously the best boy around! I'm so lucky to have him. He's a smuggler when I'm down and a clowen when I need a laugh. He brightens my bad days and enhances my good days. He's a great brother and a terrific son. I can't wait to continue to watch him grow

On Saturday my little Bomb Squaders had a game. Well my wedding rings bug me inside my glove so I asked my husband to hold them for me. Anyways, he forgot he had them in his pocket (yes of all places). Hours passed and when he got home I could hear him marching around the house. I asked what he was looking for and he told me he couldn't find one of my rings. The main one. With the diamonds in it!! Holy Cow!! Not only is this ring so special to me because it's my ring but because it was my grandmother's wedding ring. Long story short, my husband in the mayhem text his buddy's from work to tell them to keep on eye out for it. One guy text back to say he found my ring on the ground outside of the break room at the airport!! What were the chances....SERIOUSLY!! Anyways, I'm so grateful that someone was looking down on me (and Jr)

I can't believe how fast my kids are growing up. Skyler is 8 now and in 3rd grade. I can't believe she'll be an "upper grader" next year, in 10 and under and 2 yrs away from Jr high school. She's grown to the height of my shoulders and will soon out grow me in shoe size. (she's an 8 1/2 now) She's so intelligent, caring, helpful, tidy, loving, compassionate and beautiful. She's my oldest and they say that the oldest are always the learning process. I've definitely not done everything right with her, but feel like she's really blossomed into an amazing young lady. Her and I have really sort of grown up together......Kapono is 3 now and looking to start preschool soon. His poor teachers are gonna really have a hard time with him. He's crazy, but caring. Outgoing, but lovable. Rebellious, but sorry. Wild, but so damn cute. He's my hardest to discipline because he's rough and unintentionally reckless but so adorable that it's hard for me to be upset with him. He's ALL boy and knows exactly what he wants to do in life. He's GOING to USC to play football and basketball. He's my only boy and I'm so fortunate to have him.......Kensington is now 6 months. She's at such a super fun age. She's the baby and it's like they're born knowing it. She's spoiled to the max but not by physical things, but by being held and loved. She wants your attention most always, and will let you know if you're not giving it to her. She's fun and easy going and I'm enjoying watching her grow. She's the last one for me so I'm really trying to soak it all in and take each moment and cherish it......These 3 little ones are the lights of my life. I live to see them happy and smiling. They absolutely love me with their whole hearts and will forever be the best friends I'll ever have!

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I am who I am-that probably will never change. I'm not a forgiver or a forgetter. I don't trust easily and once that trust has been broken it's hard for it to ever appear again. Do I give up my feelings for the sake of others, as I usually do, or do I stay true to myself and think about me for a change? If I should choose the latter I will lose someone who's meant a lot to me for a very long time. If I choose the previous then I continue to live with a cluttered mind. I can't for see things ever being the same, but wishfully hope they would be. The future looks grey without a chance for hope. I try so hard to always be the best friend I can and am so saddened by the lack of returning the favor. This situation is a black cloud that looms over a friendship that will probably always cast showers on it. This scenario brings me back to the topic-Letting go.........
