What We've Been Up To


This is the restaurant/bar with WIFI where we check our emails and post on the blog. We come every day, usually for lunch and sometimes again for dessert. Luckily they have a menu in English for us to order from. Some of the translations are pretty funny. We have been ordering the Caesar Salad frequently because it is pretty good. It is called "Caesar - Salad with the sauce of Caesar." There are lots of other funny ones too. Not even Kostya really knew what the "Fish in Fur Coat" was. There is another one called "Peper Steak - Carefully Inflammable!" Must be steak with a spicy sauce on it. There are more, I will have to make note of next time so that I can post them too.

Julia has been taking Alina home with her frequently so that we can hang out with them in the evenings. We took these pictures on Saturday afternoon when we were all walking to the orphanage together two see the two little ones. We stopped in the park to play.


Julia always has Alina's hair done nicely to go see her mama and papa.



Being silly with her mama.




She loves it when her papa chases her.

Alina cracks me up, she is so much like you. I can't wait to meet the kids in person. Too funny about the menu, I really want to know what fish in a fur coat are. You will have to find out for me.

What a treat, we just got back from a camping trip and Claire and I were anxious to check out the blog since there hasn't been new pictures in a while... yay!! New pictures!! :) Claire loves seeing what Alina is up to and always comments on the way she looks... "Mom, Alina's hair looks so cute today doesn't it?" We pray for you guys every night when she goes to bed and talk about how maybe one day we will adopt too. We are just so happy for you guys!! God is so good!! :) Love you guys...
