Sunny Beach

On the last day of summer we went to the beach because it was so sunny! Summer is over and you can tell for sure here in Alaska as the air gets colder and windows of your car are foggy in the morning. Our summer was nice and we had a lot fun activities. I think I am ready for a fresh coat of snow on the ground:)

Emma in AWANA again!

This is Emma's second year in AWANA's and she still loves it! Last week was her first day and we were working on her verse in our school hours. Did I tell you that we started school with Emma? She is not 5 yet but I decided to start her on reading and math, both Russian and English. We start our school at 8.00 a.m and do it for 2 hours. Anastasia wants to do school too... I need to think about something for her:)
