A Taste of Russia.

We ended the term well and strong!..... We had a wonderful get together with the MacMillans. Both of our families have been learning about Russia from the Sonlight Core 5 Curriculum. Each kid had to "Choose their Adventure."

CoolDude drew the St. Basils Cathedral in pastels and kokis(felt tips)

WizzKid made a time line of Russia .............

Miss C. did her project on The Matroyska Doll ......

And Mr K. did his on the Cossack Dancers .......

Then we listened to Tchaikovsky on my laptop, and I played a short piano piece by this magnificent composer ....... "The Sugar plum Fairies".

To end it all .... we enjoyed a deeelishious Russian meal .... Beef Stroganoff.

We'r on holiday for THREE weeks now! YAHOOOOOOOO .....
