I’m sorry I haven’t posted much this month. I've spent most of it teaching summer camp for my preschoolers at
, where I've worked for the
past three years. This is the last week of camp…and my last week at the school.
Next week I start my new work life as a full-time freelance writer. Discovery
Also, I've spent time with Angela, a lovely 16 year-old from
Ukraine that my
sister-in-law and her husband plan to adopt. She is here for the summer and
hangs out with The Picky Eater and I whenever my sister-in-law has to go into work.
The entire experience is interesting since she doesn't speak much English and I know only how to say “Hello” and “Thank you” in Ukrainian. However, there is one language we both speak…food! She loves to cook. Recently we made a rustic peach pie, which I’ll blog about soon, and these chocolate chip cookies topped with M & Ms. We also hope to make some of her native country’s dishes soon for everyone to try.
Thank your for your patience as I get through this final week. I promise there will be many, many blog posts coming soon.
