Best Wishes for 2009

It is now 2009. It’s hard to believe it!

2008 Highlights

2008 went by so fast, but we wanted to share some of the highlights from last year. We had a number of guests in 2008. Here are some of their pictures.

The Müller family (Klaus, Heike, and Fabian) came from Germany in January to meet Simon, who had been studying at Portland Adventist Academy.
Taiwanese university students Hankuang & Hanlun Lee were so excited to watch an NBA game live in Portland.
Japanese university student, Noriko Tsuji, visited at Easter time.
Jingmin Yang came from Taiwan and made great friends at Riverside Christian School.
Liwen (aka Vincent) Yang learned to waterski at summer camp.
Portland area high school students came to The IDEAL School with their host families for a fun party. Here Amy Hasada is shown with the Mears family.
School friends, the Canadays, celebrated Easter at The IDEAL School, where we had both a young kids’ Easter Egg Hunt & an older kids’ one along with a delicious brunch.

Danbi, Sanghoon, and Jinin had a wonderful summer at The IDEAL School, trying many new things and learning a lot of English. Friends Rachel and Susan spent a significant amount of time helping out at the school as well.

Korean mother, Jaeran, came with her children to The IDEAL School for summer vacation. In this picture, you can see students Mayson (7th grade) and Allysa (5th grade).

We had a White Christmas this year. We got over 3 feet of snow in the 2 weeks before Christmas. It was beautiful, but it was very difficult to get around much. We sledded and made snowmen and had snowball fights. Everyone had lots of fun. It was a great way to end 2008.

We love and appreciate all of you who have visited The IDEAL School. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for 2009. We will do the same for you.

If you have any questions for him, you can email him at theidealschool(at)gmail.com. As a result of his great work, we have been getting many more inquiries about our programs. Please help us spread the word about The IDEAL School.
