Chadd goes on an amazing trip to Russia, Estonia, Finland and Denmark with the Selander Family!

Chadd ended his summer vacation in part of the world where the summer sun rarely stays set, with a trip through Russia, Estonia, Finland and Denmark with Nara (grade 3) and Sage (grade 1) Selander!

Here, Chadd takes in the sites of Tallinn's Song Festival Grounds with a statue of Estonia's most famous composer Gustav Ernesaks. 

He wonders if Chadds Ford Elementary would allow him to paint the school library ceiling to look like the famous Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia and ponders the view from the throne of the former Tsars. 

With the Olympics in Rio underway during the trip, he paused to admire the 1952 Summer Olympic Stadium in Finland from a statue of the "Flying Finn" Paavo Nurmi, who set 22 Olympic records in running.

He ended the trip by posing in the Copenhagen, Denmark airport with a local version of the Little Mermaid statue and two girls who are excited to get back to school!

Thank you Selander family!!!
