Three weeks is far too long in between postings, but it seems to be a trend for me lately. I'm sure that once x-country is over and the weather keeps me indoors, blogging will rise on my to-do list.
So school has started and I once again, after 17 years, have only one child in homeschool. Very nice to be one-on-one again - and this time only the dog is vying for my attention and not a toddler or baby (or babies)! Kevin and Kyle are at the public high school (Kamiakin) and experiencing the burden of homework while also managing after school sports practice and meets (x-country). Kyle seems to have pulled teachers who assign more homework than Kevin and we try to console him with the thought that he's learning more than Kevin. :)
Cross-country has been great for K&K. The kids are good students, hard workers, and cheer each other on at the meets. As of today we've been to three events with another coming this weekend. The first was a local jamboree, second an invitational in Olympia (266 miles), and yesterday a district meet in Yakima (83 miles), and Saturday in Spokane (141 miles). LOTS of traveling!
Here are some pics from yesterday's meet in Yakima. Kamiakin runners in the red uniforms.
The course in Olympia last weekend was level around Capitol Lake. Easy, and the times showed it. :) The bonus in going to the Olympia meet was seeing Connie and John Dunton, who spent the day with us at the park! They brought along their daughter Amy and her two little girls.
