Didn't Do It

Well, I didn't update weekly like I said I would.  Shame on me.

This blog used to be my way of communication with friends and family.  Now that I review old blogs, I can see that nearly none on my blogroll have been updated in a long time.  However, I know this can be a great way to documenting the happenings of the Kelsey family.

So what has been going on?

Homeschooling with the kids has been going great.  I think Kim is doing a great job and the kids love it.  I like that we can incorporate Lads to Leaders work into easily.  I still miss seeing the kids at school each day, but I know that we made the best decision.  It wasn't an easy decision by all means.  After all, I am a public school teacher that has children out of public schools.  The school I work with is good, but we worried about what the future held in higher grades and what challenges they'd face spiritually.

Softball season is about to start.  I'm excited about getting to coach.  Lila is excited too!  Kim is going to help with Addi's team.  Meanwhile, Levi will stay busy with Karate and Boy Scouts.

Besides all these things, I'm glad that we have a church to be active in.   The kids enjoy their Bible classes, they work hard training in Lads to Leaders, and they have friends to play with.

Life is good.

Stay tuned for another update.  Maybe in 2 weeks again.  Ha.

Decided to update my blog that I used for communication just a couple of years ago.  I guess Facebook and Twitter had my attention more.  I also noticed my mother-in-law udpated her blog yesterday, so I think it's time for a revival, don't you think?

Life for the Kelsey's has been good.  Addi just turned 10, Levi is 8 today, and Lila is 5.  Did I document Lila's birth on this blog?  Can't remember!  The kids are now being homeschooled by my wife.  They all love it.

We are still invovled with our church with Lads to Leaders.  In fact, Addi has taken up blogging.  One event she is doing is website, so she's been using a blog for entry.  Check it out!

I still teach at Pleasant Grove Elementary, 4th grade.  It's a job that definately keeps me busy.

I think I may make it goal to write here at least once a week now.  We shall see.  Check back for more!

Yearly Update

Wow, this blog has really been neglected.

Life is good for the Kelsey family. Our community was hit hard when an F4 tornado hit. We were missed by a couple hundred yards. Our friends were not as lucky. Our community is rebuilding, but it will never be the same.

Addi has been headache free for 9 months! She loves school and starts gifted classes this week. I'm so proud of her.

Levi is a great little first grader and behaves so well. I have a feeling he's going to be getting straight A's.

Lila can't wait for school to start for her, but still has to wait a couple of years. She is definately a "girl girl" and loves anything pink or princess related.

Kim is doing well and is going to be a room mother again at school. She did a terrific job last year. She is also involved with our school's PTA. She had a job for an on call service, but the hours were not worth the money.

Take care everyone....if you are reading!

Fading Away

It's sad that I haven't updated this blog in so long. I used to love blogging, but I guess Facebook won the competition.

Here are a few things going on with the Kelsey's

1) Addi is doing better despite dealing with headaches.
2) Levi loves school and is doing great.
3) Lila has turned 3. WOW!
4) Kim continues to do well with her job and continues to do a fabulous job taking care of us.
5) Our dog Molly had a surprise litter of puppies. Want one?
6) School is fine for me. I have a smart-board in my room and love it.
7) I haven't been dieting good lately.
8) We're going to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving. Can't wait!
9) We're going to Disney World for Spring Break. Can't wait!
10) We love staying involved with Sylvan Springs Church of Christ.

Hope all is well with you, if anyone is reading this!

Diet Mode

Well, I'm going to try to get back in diet mode. I'm going to try to lose 30 pounds before school starts. I know I can do it. I'll use again and go to the gym daily this summer. Hopefully I'll get back on track!

Watching The Biggest Loser inspired me. Once I have one good day, I'll be able to keep it going!

Note: Those are not my toes! :-)

Little Munchkin

Addi was in a production of "The Wizard of Oz." She did great! Here is a pic.
