We have been blessed with two special daughters and two sons from Eastern Europe. We welcome you to follow our journey as a family of five, waiting to travel and pick up #6, with the ins and outs of family, education, farm life, and love!

Monday 8/30, Day 2 in Capital City

We were able to stay up until 10:00pm last night, then slept all night.  I woke with a headache, I think partly to the difference in Ukrainian pillows (square and thick) and from all the stress of traveling caught up with me.  So I took some advil and went back to sleep.  Doug woke up around 10:00am and then he woke me at 11:30am!

We decided to do some walking to get us conditioned to our many walking trips we will be making in the coming weeks.  We walked about 25 minutes and found an American restaurant.  I had cheese fries (though not as good as in the US.  Doug had a steak.  We commented about how good that food is going to taste after being here for a while!

A walk home and a stop at the grocery store to buy paper towels, dish soap, potatoes and onions (the tradition has continued).  It is now 4:30 in the afternoon.  The rest of the day will be spent re-organizing our bags and reading. 
Tomorrow our SDA appointment is at 11:00am, which would be 4:00am Ohio time! 

Hannah- this picture is for you!  Perogies, your favorite!  I thought of you and took a picture!

Other great finds in the supermarket- my all time favorite seasoning! It's an Italian seasoning that we found on our first trip to Ukraine, then again when we were in Serbia.  The one we have at home is almost gone.  Doug and I joke that when the bottle is empty, it must be time to adopt again! :)  And hazelnut M&Ms.  Laurie, who is in the region we are traveling to, talked about them, so when we found them, we just had to try them!  They are yummy!
