Hello to All

1948 Grandad (Clyde D. King) hunting!!!

1957 Grammy and their dog Rebel!!! So cute!

What a beautiful day today! Suppose to be in the 80's! The nights are cooler and the days are just perfect. I think I smell school in the air. Or Jade would say he smells hunting! LOL.

This morning we woke up to get ready for swim team. Melina was the only girl there on her team. Summers are so much slower for swim and I love the days when her coach can spend more one on one time with her. I think she likes it also. However, she pushes herself more when she has others to race with.

Olline just is doing so well also! We are still very proud of them. We are hoping that Melina's next swim meet will be October 2-4 in Coeur d'Alene. It will be at a brand new center and it should be exciting. Plus we won't have to drive over 4 hours to get there! Also, we won't need a hotel, we can come home! Great things to look forward to.

School is coming fast. We will be starting on the 31st of this month! Olline will be starting the Idaho Virtual Academy. It is an online school (charter school), which they supply all her needs, even a computer. I just need a bit more structure with her! I just get overwhelmed with two whole curriculum's! I am nervous, it may be harder for us, or it may be a great way to teach! We all need lots of prayer. I just need to remember to take it day by day! My brains get ahead of me sometimes and I get scared!

So, school seems to be getting lined up and ready. Just need to do last minute organizing when the time get closer. As for now we are trying to enjoy every minute of our summer!

We hope you are all doing well. Love you bunches. God Bless.

Quick Note

I just wanted to say that this year on August 1st Melina swam the huge annual Long Bridge Swim. Yes, it is the same bridge you drive over when you come to Sandpoint! It is 1.76 miles long!!!! Melina swam it in 1 hour and 36 minutes! WOW WEE. We think that is incredible and she really didn't train or practice. She just went for it. God has certainly blessed us!

Today I am using Jade's laptop. Our computer has been out of commission for some time now. We are hoping that it will be back up in a week or so. So I just wanted to post a small letter today. I miss adding to my blog. So much has happened since July 17th. Kids attended camps. Melina attended a bible camp for a week-over night!!! It was her first over night event. It was so strange. That same week Olline attended the Schweitzer day camp from 8-4pm. To be home alone without my girls was a very weird feeling. Jade and I did get a little vacation though. We went on the boat, went to Canada and such. It was great.

So time is ticking down for school to restart. I am in the process in getting everything in order. However, without my computer I am unable to do a lot of it. This year I will be signing up Olline for the 1st grade Idaho Virtual Academy. It is a public (charter school) system. It scares me a little, but I want to try it for a year. It is a homeschool system. They send us the computer, school work and everything we need. It does not have a christian study, so I would like to add that. If we like it, I plan to only use it for the 1st and 2nd grades. We will see how it goes. I am still trying to register her up.
Melina and I will be doing the next level of A New World of Adventure! It is a great program with all the subjects except Math; I supplement that in.

Oh, we did go camping too! For just a couple days. We dug for Star Garnets, had wild weather, and great bonding time. We had to leave our camp at 3am to get away from tornado winds, thunder and lightning. WOW!

Well I will try to post soon. It may be awhile for our computer to be running smooth! We love you all and wish the best for you. God Bless you!
