Life is crazy busy. We are preparing to head back to Ethiopia any day now, getting ready for Amon, enjoying the last little bit of summer and getting everyone ready to start school…Harper kindergarten and the boys MDO. Plus chalk up everything else life throws at you. So we’re a little on the nutty side. We’re also really making a conscience effort to enjoy these last few days as a family of 5. Loving and playing hard…very hard.
We may be eating ice cream and popsicles a bit too much because life is really good.
The wee Kelleys are crazy swimmers. And everyone is a full fledged swimmer now. I even bought diving sticks and rings the other day. I can’t believe they are that big now. I so enjoy hanging at the pool with them for hours upon hours.

I am completely convinced Sol is going to participate in some type of endurance sport when he’s older. This kid is crazy cool and holds his breath like I have never seen…we’re talking, diving for rings and getting them off the bottom of the deep end. He’s a bit stubborn and determined not to leave the ring on the bottom. I like him and his unlikely 3-year-old breath holding.
Harper is really enjoying some girl time lately. I often forget how much she enjoys some real girls only time. We did a little finger and toe painting this weekend. She wanted rainbow with hearts. As she wished.
Harper’s got her own style too. Sometimes it’s super hard to just go with the flow of letting her dress herself, but she’s just so herself and I can totally appreciate that.
Huddy recently cut a bow and some arrows out of a magazine. We’re not sure why…he just did. And continued to talk about it for a while. Josh made everyone bows and arrows this weekend. HUGE hit. Major Dad points for sure.
A weekend full of cold treats, a cool pool, pretty nails and shooting homemade bows sound like a perfectly perfect weekend to me. And here we are…Monday. Today we’re getting life done. Crossing things off our big to-do list and still enjoying our last days as a family of 5. I cannot wait for Amon to join us and make us a family of 6, but we are not going to waste these days…we’re going to live it up big time before the wee-est Kelley joins us for the ride.
