Earlier this week, Bear and I spoke to his 2nd grade class about our life in Kyrgyzstan. This was similar to the talk I did with my daughter’s 5th grade class. The biggest difference was the amount of time we had to share–we were given over an hour to share. It was a pleasure to share stories about our life there, to show some of our Kyrgyz treasures, and to provide a little Kyrgyz snack.
The food, pictured above, are mini “naan” loaves I made. While these little naan loaves are not the traditional size (or using the traditional recipe–I used my pizza dough recipe), I did use a naan stamp to decorate it. I also served osh. The students enjoyed the tasty treats.
Bear was only 2 1/2 when we went to Kyrgyzstan. He was almost 6 when we returned back to the US. Bear did not do a lot of talking, but he wanted to make sure he shared a story about our dog, Jackie, who was left behind. Kyrgyzstan was home to him, home to us all. Oh, sweet, sweet memories.
