|The kids wanted to wave goodbye to Mom, and I promised them I'd give to her. So Mom, this pictures for you! They love you :)|
After we dropped Mom off, I headed back to get some sleep before starting my day for real. I then got up around 7:45am or so for a FaceTime date with Carissa! Somewhere between me answering and her finally going to bed, 4 hours managed to slip away. It was great to talk with her though, and make her all sleep deprived :)
After I realized my morning had transitioned to afternoon without me realizing, I got started on updating my blog, sending out some emails, etc. Then, it was off to lunch and school!
The kids were kind of strange today.... but in a good way, I suppose. We did balloon volleyball, and the kids LOVED it!

|Sofia, all sorts of smug that she didn't have to crouch to go under the limbo rope|
|The kids catching the bubbles I was blowing for them|
|They were seriously on cloud 9 :)|
|The Silver class - they found the duct tape that I used to tape the yarn across the room, an wanted to plaster it on their face! Who am I to say no? (especially when it keeps them so quiet...)|

|They got SUPER into it! Keeping score, spiking the baloon, all that jazz|
Once we got home from classes, Dima came over - but not for Russian lessons! He came bearing a good ol' pickle pizza... which is exactly what it sounds like. Pickles on pizza. They love it here. Not sure why. Anyway, Dima really wanted pizza and decided to share with his Americans!
|Please notice that Dima stole Elise's hipster glasses. That's basically why I took this picture. Treasure, right there :)|
