    A Perfect Fit

    Barry and I have between us 7 university degrees so an education for our children is simply a given. But with a bright young son who is a gifted athlete and a passionate competitor we needed to find an adaptive school environment that permitted him to compete on all continents through the winter and succeed academically in preparation for university. Blyth made this happen. Dylan loved the small classes, the commitment of his teachers and the can do spirit of the school. Blyth staff helped with SAT preparation, with university applications and with campus visits. Dylan applied to three great Canadian universities and three NCAA Division 1 American schools. He was accepted at all 6 schools and received several scholarship offers. He has accepted Dartmouth and looks forward to being part of this wonderful community in September. Thank you to everyone at Blyth.” ...



    Culinary Arts in Italy

    What a day! I think day four was the hottest day yet, but this is the beginning I'm sure. This morning we woke up and met at the vans at 9 am to go to market. Once we got there Paul and Tracy handed us our assignment and asked for all of our dictionaries and phrase books. They had handed us a paper full of names of vegetables and meats in English and we were to ask around for the Italian translations. Good thing barely anyone in Puglia speaks English, right? That was the fun part of all of it. Everyone in town is so nice and helpful. After our lists were completed we met up and bought roasted chicken, cheese, fruit and foccacia. Can you believe 9 half chickens were 12 Euros? After a quick cool down, a small group of us went into the kitchen to make dessert to go with tonight's dinner. We made sugar cookies, fruit tarts and tiramisu. (with Erin's homemade Ladies feet :) ) When the desserts were done we were definitely ready to run right into the pool, and that’s exactly what we all did. Nothing like a refreshing dip in the pool after a long hot day. Anyways off to dinner, I can't wait to dig into dessert! Ciao, Carly (student) ...
