Sweet weather, sweet day!

Published: June 17, 2015

We have reached the summit of our first summer session.Today was finally a warm and sunny day at Lesnoe Ozero. To have enough energy for the long and interesting day we had eggs, sausages, and homemade кексы (muffins) for breakfast. Full of energy and positive attitude we started our day with Russian lessons where beginners continued to learn village vocabulary, heritage speakers learnt more about сказка (Russian fairy tale) and adults studied new phrases in Russian and could even speak to each other a little bit during lunch. After обед (lunch) our kids and parents went to cultural hours where they could explore more about topics they picked yesterday. Since the weather was beautiful, we could do outdoor activities such as volleyball and футбол (soccer). 

For the evening program, we watched Russian cartoon Маша и Медведь (Masha and the Bear) and participated in a game where they had to find puzzle pieces together.
