Nate and Nikki
20 October 2009Logos International School
Nate’s new scholastic pursuit. Its not so easy, lots of lip and breath
action. He has a band class in 7th grade. It’s a new season of music in
our house. Both kids started piano lessons in Sept. They will have
their first recital in Nov. No wonder “Aura Lee” and “Jingle Bells” are
running through my head!
it’s a good year, Ancient History, speeches, typing, New Testament, and
all the usuals. Occasionally we have dinner discussions on rocks or
ancient Egypt. Nate is a diligent and successful student. He is also
active in the Middle School combined International churches Youth
Group. He still likes to play soccer and is looking forward to the
season next year. Last year he tried all the Middle School sports.
is a good one too. Nikki’s teacher is very experienced, in her 20th
year of teaching. And she has a great class. She is currently studying
Japan. She likes Science too, and art and music and PE and Swimming. Of
course she does great in all the basics too. She is reading like crazy,
mysteries, horse books, . . . And she loves to have friends over
We are very pleased with Logos, a
Christian International School. The curriculum is American and most of
the teachers, but the students are a wonderful mix of Cambodian, Korean
and various other nationalities.
of our favorite things to do as a family is travel. Over a recent
school holiday we took a trip to Koh Chang Island in Thailand. It is
not far from the border of Cambodia and we drove our car into
Thailand for the first time. It only took us six hours, including the
border crossing, to get to the town of Trat. Then, the next morning a
couple of hours, including the half hour ferry ride, to reach our
hotel. We had one clear sunny day to enjoy the beach and then it
started raining (well, it is rainy season!). Back in Cambodia in the
border town of Koh Kong we went to see the mangrove swamp. It is
one of the largest in SE Asia and very interesting. We walked on raised
pathways over the water and climbed an observation deck to look out
over a sea of mangroves.
- Pray that Nate and Nikki would grow in “wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.”
- And that they might be rooted and established in Christ’s love (Eph. 3:14-19).
- Ask for their continued protection from accidents and sickness.
- Pray for godly friends for them.
