Spring is Here!

How did you like that moon last night?

Okay...here are some photos taken last Saturday (March 12, 2011) at Whitworth college in Spokane. The girls raced in the Shamrock Shakeup Swim Meet and did very well. Both girls improved on their times! Olline won her first ribbon for the 100y Freestyle Relay coming in third place! Melina's age group did the same in their 200y Freestyle Relay! So awesome! Our SWAC Sharks were also mentioned in the local newspaper!

We are SUPER PROUD!!!!

I do have so many more photos. I think I edited 206 yesterday and that was just from Saturday. I usually take photos for the whole team. So I will have more photos from Sundays events, but I won't have those finished yet!
Stay tuned...
God Bless and know that He loves you!

Just wanted to say that our computers have been a bit infected lately. So my blogging has been super slow. I will try to post as much as I can.

The girls have a swim meet tomorrow and Sunday. They are super excited and Melina is having a hard time focusing on school! Hee. We are traveling to Spokane for this meet at Whitworth College. Early morning for us. Need to be there at 7:30 for Olline to start her warm ups. Meet starts at 9am. So this time Olline swims all her races first, then Melina starts around noon. We will be there all day! I am looking forwards to it because I can focus on Olline's races, then I can focus on Melina's races. Yeah!

Anyway, that is what we are up to. Hope all our family and friends are well!

God Bless...Hope to post some swim photos next week!

Sick, Snow, School, Swim, Ski

Just an update on things happening around here. I have been sick for a few days now. The ol' sinus, headache, ookie feeling cold! Again! I think this is my year for colds. If I could get rid of the headaches, I would be so much better. I think today I do feel a bit better than the last two days. I was able to teach school a little bit and move around a lot more.
Thankfully I have Jade! He is my blessing and he does so much for us. He was able to go snowboarding today! Very happy for him. We have been receiving so much snow and the mountain must be so fun to snowboard on! (I am talking many FEET of new snow on that mountain.) So Jade ran up there and took a few runs. He also has taken the girls swimming for me. Pool rooms and headaches do not mix, so I am grateful that he is with them and allowed me to stay home.
Girls are preparing for a swim meet on March 12 & 13. We will be at Whitworth College for this one. It should be a great time and the girls are always excited.
So here are my photos to share...

2-28-11 My tulip is starting to die, but isn't it beautiful? I love their smooth petals.

2-28-11 Yesterdays snow! The flakes were so huge! It snowed most of the day and still is snowing today!

You can see our deer target is starting to be buried. So I assume by his legs, we have around 2 feet. Maybe 2 1/2...

Just another flower moment! I love them and they are so colorful! Can't wait for spring!

2-28-11 Here are the girls school picture I took one year ago, I believe in April 2010. Haven't they grown up? I will be getting ready to take their April 2011 school pictures soon. I just like to do it after they age up in April.
We love you all and hope your days are well. I know that some of our family have been receiving so snow as well. Maybe it has changed to rain by now. I know it has been warmer at our house and our snow is on the edge of being rain.
God bless you all and may you remember He loves you always!
