Andrey again!

We visited the high school again and Andrey met the Principal, Dr. Miles, and Assistant Principal Helene Dutcher. They were very impressed with his English and told him that they are really looking forward to having him as a student at Tift County High School. Andrey will be a Junior.

We went swimming at the YMCA with Andrey!!!! He and I went down the slide many times and swam in the big pool. Andrey is a very good swimmer. He is very athletic and is very versatile. Guess what - we met a lady and her daughter from Ukraine who were at the pool. Mama has been wanting to meet them for a long time, and believe it or not, they were at the pool yesterday! Mama was sitting right next to them and overheard them talking. She thought it sounded like the Russian language, and it was! They greeted Andrey in Russian and had a good conversation. Her son, Igor, will be a senior at Tift County High School this year! They have lived in the United States for 4 years.
