This last week has been a blast! From playing LOTS of football to camping with family and friends. First of all, if all of you didn’t know, my family and I have just arrived in University Place, Washington. We plan to spend our summer break here, and stay until early August. My summer here will be eventful and fun-filled. So far, I have gone to the campground in the small town of Belfair and stayed with my Cousins and friends there for about 5 days. It had to be one of my favorite camping trips of all. I had countless fun moments there, from playing lacrosse to eating sweets in the tent that we shared. I’m sure we all had a blast. One of my favorite things to do there was to play a game called Navias with everyone. This is a Football game, which involves scoring of crosses, volleys and headers with a fun twist. It was a unique game which had many fun surprises! With all this, I’m still keeping athletic and fit, so I’ll keep everyone updated! Talk to you soon.
For the past few days me and my brother Jaisen went to a camp ground named Belfair. We went with my uncles family, my cousin’s godparent’s family, and my friend. We go there every year to celebrate my aunts b-day which is on the 4th of July. Since we spent the past year in Moscow we were very anxious to go while we were back. When me and my brother found out we were going we were so ecstatic. So on that day we hurried home packed our bags and hurried over to Belfair. Even though it took 40 minutes to get there it was worth it. When we first got there we were a little bit shy since we just got back from Russia. But after a few minutes we opened up and had a blast. My favorite part was when we had a seaweed fight. Basically what you do is you separate into teams and you find seaweed and throw at the other team. The teams were The Zurfluhs VS. The Non-Zurfluhs. It was soooooo much fun! But one bad thing was that both teams had to walk back to the camp ground all slimy and fishy. Good thing I got to shower. Another one of my favorite parts was when all of the kids went to the store. Near Belfair there is this mini market that has an antique store next to it. So what we like to do is we go there and stock up on all sorts of stuff to eat in the tent. I still have a lot of candy but kids are kids right? Basically what I’m trying to tell you is I had a lot of FUN!
The kids spent some time staying with my brother out at Belfair State Park again this summer. As usual, they had a great time and the weather was generally cooperative despite some typical Washington rain. Most of it was blue skies and lots of fun!

Small clip from piano encore from Khatia Buniatishvili, concert pianist that night for the Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna at Musikverein. Wonderful performance for the whole family!
We spent Spring Break 2012 with a trip to Austria. Rented a car in Vienna and stayed in a nice village just outside of Salzburg called Fuschl. Then a few days in Vienna while Jon attended the ECIS Spring Administrators Conference. We enjoyed the country and explored a tremendous amount of history in both cities. Of the two, we enjoyed Salzburg the most, including the final night concert at the Fortress overlooking the city.
Ice skating is fun and creative and lets people express themselves. But your probably thinking “How can people express themselves through ice skating????” People can express themselves through skating in many ways. Some can express themselves through different moves, some can express themselves through the routine, some can even express themselves by just doing what they love. Everybody can do this task freely and they get a chance to be creative. That’s why I love skating so much!!!!!!
Under construction and coming soon!
Had to give up on Mambo site because of upgrade hassles. Was overdue to switch to WordPress for this site as well. Stay tuned. This is limited time available project, but the kids will get involved, so good things are coming!
