Day at the залив (bay)

Late to post again, but hey, better late than never. Summer has blown by, and as of today I have about 2 weeks left before I go back to school. In short, it's been one of the best summers of my life, hands down. I'll be sad to see it go, but I also look forward to school, and find myself thinking often about my students and what they're up to. I'm sure they're not thinking about school at all, but hey I think this might be the first time in my life where i'm excited to get back to school.

This is actually the first week where I have nothing really planned. I have had 3 summer camps back to back from the very beginning of June until the beginning of August, so this respite has been a welcome change to my hectic summer schedule. I enjoyed every camp I went to immensely, especially the one in Kharkov- mainly because it was so challenging and intense. I learned a lot about teaching techniques and different approaches to dealing with children. I feel very accomplished in my summer, and I'm glad to say it's not quite over yet.

Anyways, recently my best friend Dasha (also my counterpart) and her family went to the bay that's closest to Armyansk for the day. We cooked "Shashlik" which is basically the Ukrainian version of barbecuing, and swam. It was a lot of fun, and very relaxing. To top it all off, we made home made pizza the next day. All in all, a very successful week! Below are some pictures.


Miss you all,

Love Nitai
