Good Morning to all. This week has been filled with great weather, busy family outings, and school! Last weekend we were able to go out for a hike all together. It was so much fun and God blessed us with great weather. Chowder even came and he was a very happy dog!

Also that weekend the girls had a one day swim meet back at Whitworth College. They did very well. It was a long and exhausting day, but we made it home safe. Melina was so tired she fell asleep on our way home! She NEVER does that! I will try and post some pictures of our weekend.

Melina had her ISAT tests these last two days! We are so proud of her. I do not know the numbers yet, but she scored advanced on Language Arts, perfect on Math, perfect on Reading and she scored basic on Science. The Science test was new, so every one that took it scored basic or below. It just feels good that she is learning and doing so well!
Also, Olline scored super high on her reading test that she took Tuesday. Her "bench mark" was suppose to only be 53, but she scored 69! She is a good reader. So proud! This homeschooling think must be working! PTL!

So today we will be schooling. The girls will go swimming later. I wanted to let our families know that Jade and I have decided that the girls will not be swimming this May-July. At least that is our plan for now. We will be taking a big break from it and hopefully start back up in August. It will feel weird and we will miss it, but summer is coming and I know we will be swimming a lot in the lake!
Also, I am going through the photos I took of the girls "school photos". I will get wallets and different sizes soon to share with all of you!
So, I better start up our schooling plan for the day. Hope all is well with our families! LOVE YOU ALL and GOD BLESS!

Birthdays and Easter

4-4-10 The LORDS Easter Sunday and Olline's 7th Birthday!

4-3-10 Melina blowing her eleven candles out!

I am having difficulty downloading more photos. I will try more tomorrow!

Well this has been a big weekend. Melina turned 11 on the 3rd and Olline turned 7 on the 4th! Can you believe how old they are getting? Jade and I both are amazed. They are such beautiful, strong and sweet girls and we are super proud of them.
We took it easy this year for the birthdays. Melina said she liked it "quiet", not having a lot of people. Melina opened gifts in the morning, then we went to lunch at Jalapenos, then she spent some "birthday" money! When Jade got home we all went to the movies and saw "Alice in Wonderland"! It was fantastic! After all that we came home and rested, then sang Happy Birthday and had cake and icecream. It was yummy. Melina also stayed up till 11pm, on her 11th birthday!

So then for Olline's birthday we sort of did the same thing. Although we did wake up to some snow! Jade also had to work and he was able to attend the 5am service on TOP of Schweitzer mountain! He said it was gorgeous!
There wasn't a lot to do on the 4th, being that it was Easter and most places were closed. So she was able to open presents, eat lunch at McDonalds, then spend her money...then when Jade got home we went back to the movies and saw "How to Train Your Dragon"! It was also fantastic! Jade loved it because it had great Viking stuff in it! So now we are home and we will be getting the cake ready soon!

So I believe the girls are so very happy! Also happy today for the fact that we get to celebrate our Lord! To celebrate HIM and all he has done for us! He has RISEN! Thank you Lord for all your blessings.

I will try to post a few photos. We pray all our families are well and had a fantastic day! LOVE YOU ALL!
