WE never know what tomorrow brings, so we have to live for today! The last several months have been difficult as I am sure you all have read. It seemed to be one thing after the next. I decided that Kendra's hernia surgery could wait until this summer. They girls are both going to be having back surgery soon. I was trying to hold off until this summer, but we will see. Maliyah is doing AWESOME right now. I am so proud of her. She is one strong little girl. We just got back from Disneyland. It wasn't suppose to be a Disney trip, but turned into one. It was very tiring. The kids had such a good time, Jake and I were very tired from all the walking and pushing of strollers. The beach was just amazing and it felt so good to be away from the medical stuff for a week. I just hope we can extend the surgeries and hospital stays to this summer. Courtney and I are leaving for St. George on Friday. It will be a fast trip!! We are staying with Jake's brother it make things cheaper. Courtney's competition is on Saturday, I hope early in the morning so that we can get home. Jake's sister is getting married on the 18th of April and would love to go and see that. Justin and Austin are getting so big and talking so much. I am so excited for the all of you to see the documentary on TLC. The kids were so cute when we were filming. The fitting for the girls "robot legs" went very well. They were so brave and Kendra was excited for the new step in her life. Maliyah is a little nervous for her "leg". Everything in Maliyah's own time. We have so much work this summer to help them to use their legs and get them moving. I really hope they aren't discouraged with the difficulty of using their new legs. I really want things to go really easy for them. They really need a break!!!
