Thank you so much for your comment! It is so nice to get news about you!!!
I think it is great to use Google Earth in the classroom, may be I'll try to do the same.
As for summer - we swam and sunbathed a lot, the weather was too hot. In some regions of our country there were big fires because of it.
Fortunatly, in our place it changed by rains.
Our school starts on September 1 too and I' ll begin preparing for the new school year soon.
