We will let you guess who took this picture.
Hint: Do women look at Google maps and then take pictures of what they see on the screen? (He wants to be able to remember where we were!)
Just some funny things about this place.
There are no shower curtains; big, nice tubs with hand held shower massagers, but no shower curtains.
Some parents push their children in strollers. Many more pull them on little sleds. Its pretty cute.
The women here love boots! Boots that go up to their knees and have a 4 inch heel. They wear them with absolutely everything, mini skirts, jeans, whatever. It is now a game for us to watch for a woman not wearing boots. Natalie wants some, of course, for her 6th grade graduation. (Not gonna happen.)
Bedazzle Mania! Everyone wears jeans here! And not just jeans but glittery, rhinestoned, multi-zippered, very tight jeans.
Many middle aged men carry purses/man bags. We have noticed the bigger the man, the smaller the purse; the smaller the man, the bigger the purse. Dan, Brian, Mark: not to worry we have room in our suitcases to bring each of you one! Would you like a pair of jeans as well? Sam, what about you?
Out the window of our apartment is a gym. In the evening, the girls watch the women do aerobics and mimic them.
There are stray dogs everywhere! The girls have a count for each day.
Only flat sheets, no fitted sheets.
There is a show on t.v. that we think must be Ukrainian Idol.
There is no maple syrup here.
They sell beer in vending machines on the street (less than $2 a piece).
To lock a door the key must be turned three times. You should leave the key in the door horizontally so that no one can push the key out from the other side.
Today was a better day than some of the others. We did some paperwork at the "Inspector's Office." Then, we got to visit and play games with Jen.
Tomorrow will be an important day. We will be going to an office about two hours away to speak with the person who will grant or deny the disconnection/separation between the two younger boys and the older brother. This is the deal maker or breaker.
Thanks for your prayers and emails! We love hearing from you!
