September in a Flash

Where did it go? I don't even know what happen to the month of September. Oh, that's right 3 members of the O'Kelley Fab Five started off the month sick so that made mom wanting the month to fly by :) We have been extremely busy with cheerleading like I mentioned in the last blog. We had cheerleading pictures taken on the 15th so when we get those back I will post those. School has kept me extremely, I have had tests, presetations, and projects all in one month, but you know it is all for a good cause in the end. Kerigan is preparing for the church play that she is in on November 18th so that keeps her busy on Wednesdays. Morgan FINALLY started walking last week. If you haven't personally seen her do it you need to see her (you know who I am talking to). Even though we have been busy we have been just us. We stay on the run but we manage to survive. I feel like we stay really busy until I go to write it in our blog and then it feels like nothing so who knows. Until next month, we will see what kind of trouble in can get into and stay out of all at the same time. :) Love to all our friends and family.

Let's try this again

So I started this blog thing about 6 months ago determined to keep it up and keep our friends and family up to date with our every day life and well, everyday life happened and I haven't kept up so I figure I might as well see if I can try and keep this up again.

We survived the summer and boy was I happy when the girls returned to school. Now don't get me wrong I love having my kids out of school but I am also into routines and as many of you know it is hard to keep routines in the summer so I am finally getting another routine down.

Let me get you caught up on everyone in the O'Kelley Fab Five as we now call ourselves around here.

Jason: Is staying extremely busy at AT&T in the Tax Systems Department as a manager and when he is not doing that you can either find him at the keyboard at church (his second love), playing short stop for the church softball team on Tuesday Nights, or helping out at the flag football games where the girls cheer on Saturdays. However for the last week he has either been battling the strep virus or a stomach bug and at the point his "lovely" wife is about to pull out her hair.

Kerigan: She turned six during the summer and is our big first grader this year and is loving every minute of it. She has a fantastic teacher. I was told that if the principal of the school's kid was in the class then you know you have a great teacher and I am extremely blessed to have such a great teacher. She is excelling at all of her work and receives really good comments and grades for all of her hard work. When she is not at school she is either cheerleading, taking ballet and jazz, or participating in the kids program at church.

Liv: She is now 4.5 yrs old and she is in the pre-k program at Kiddie College which is about 5 miles from our home. Her teacher is Ms. Patty and she is loving it. I have always told Jason that the girls seem to grow tremendously once they start at Kiddie College and the same holds true for her. She has become an even greater joy to be around and has grown into a little girl. When she is not at school she is cheerleading, taking ballet, or participating in the kids program at church.

Morgan: Well, little miss priss is 15 months now and is most definitely a priss pott. She is attempting to walk but still to "chicken" to let go and have at it. She keeps all of us on our toes though from playing Daddy's keyboards to climbing the stairs when noone is looking.

Me: Well, needless to say I can't stay still. I started Fall Semester at KSU in August on Tues and Thurs mornings, I still work at church, I am co-room mom for Kerigan's class this year, I attempt to keep my house in order, and I work at nights at the Cobb County Jail 2-3 nights a week for the Public Defender's Office. Also in August I was FINALLY to put on a daily medication for my migraines which has made life a little easier and less painful.

My true intentions are to keep this up to date at least once a month (maybe readers will get lucky and I will do more based on what's happening with the Fab Five). I have some readers that will give me a hard time if I don't keep it up (you know who you are) and I will keep it up to date with their help.

Signing off for now
