On March 8th, Ukraine celebrated International Women's Day in grand fashion. (It's a fabulous holiday that American needs to adopt asap!) All schools were closed giving everyone a four day weekend. I got to celebrate Women's Day Weekend with Baba Nina, Mama Halya, Vika, and a few other lady relatives. All my favorite women in Ukraine.
The weekend was spent eating, relaxing, and laughing at each other.
My school put on a few concerts in celebration of the day. My students bought in flowers and candy and cards for all their teachers. My 3rd form gave me a beautiful blue iris and 8th form gave me a basket of flowers made of chocolate.
My kindergartens right before their concert. They were so excited, they couldn't stand still.
Each girl wore a different kind of flower on her head to represent spring.
My sweet, sweet 3rd form. They're just precious.
The 5th form breaking it down to a song about grandmas.
I don't teach these students but their form makes up 8 out of 12 students in my English Club for younger students. They are awesome kids.
