On Friday, Vanya's family brought in a special treat for us to eat - beautiful Russian decorated eggs! I thought they were almost too pretty to eat. In the afternoon, Lilia and Roman both came to talk about the eggs and also to teach the children how to make dyed eggs using onion skins. Talk about combining social studies, history, food science, art ... and snack!
We were also joined by Maddy's father and grandmother, so it was truly a family event.
