Bits of news.

Jake took a few pictures of Gracie and I last sunday. She has an aversion to sitting still, but who doesn't?
Well... what's new with us... We bought one house and now we're buying two. We close on the second one in September. I start real estate school next week and I will be done soon enough to list our house when we sell it. I love real estate and am very interested in it and have sold by owner before, so I am really excited to sell and buy for family and friends and for Jake and I as well. I am going to work for Realty Executives when I finish.
What else is new.. hm.. we are going to Florida for a week, we leave on August 13th. Ruby is getting tubes put into her ears on the morning of August 8th, and we are all really excited to hear less screaming and more words!
Jake's brother Levi is getting married, and we're really excited for him. Salt Lake temple, sometime in October. He graduated from Law School last summer and has been working in New York. He met his honey there and they are so great together!
Ruby's favorite pasttime is pulling Gracie's hair and the look on Ruby's face is hilarious while the look on Grace's face is horror. It's tough teaching Ruby, who is 18 months, not to be so vicious. She just blinks her eyes and acts innocent, but if she understands, "Ruby, go upstairs and get a shirt out of your drawer and bring it to mommy", then she understands, "Don't pull Grace's hair". I'm crossing my fingers that she won't be the kindergarten bully.
We love our girls so much. Jake gets them out of bed sometimes at 11pm for an 'extra snuggle'. They can't fight the snuggle when they're asleep, so we'll lay them in our bed and we'll examine their little faces and hands. They are amazing creations.

Well that's a lot of news! Why are you selling your home so soon? And where is the new house? I'm glad you guys are doing so well. As you know Jody is a realtor also and when we move he wants me to get my license as well. I have always been way too into his job so it will be good for me to actually be the one doing it! it will be great extra money and something you can do with kids. At first I thought you were going to say you were pregnant again!

ha ha ha no, not pregnant yet and not really trying, but trust me, when I am pregnant, I will blog it! Real Estate is fun and so fast paced. I plan to only work a few hours a week and I would never want my kids to be in day care because of it, so it will just be sort of part time. We are staying in our current house, we will be selling our investment soon after we buy it because we have 8 months worth of equity in it, since its a new build. The new house that we are buying is just up the street. Literally, two blocks away. So if we choose to rent, I can keep an eye on them. :)
