Do I have to go back to school?????????

Today was our first day of Russian Language school! Woohoo. Kristen has class in the morning and I have it in the afternoon. Yes, we are in different classes with different teachers. I think that will be good though, or at least that's what everyone tells us. We have class for 3 hours Monday, Tues., Thurs, Fri. and have homework and speaking assignments that should keep us busy. I thought I was done with the whole "first day back to school" feeling but I guess not!

Independence Day

Today is Independence Day here in Ukraine. They are celebrating their Independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. We're going to a picnic with a bunch of friends so it should be fun!

We're off to see the wizard...

Well, ok not really, but we are off to vacation in sunny Odessa for a week! We are very excited to have a week of relaxation and rejuvenation on the coast of the Black Sea. Please pray that God will use this vacation to renew us as we look forward to a Fall full of new adventures!

4 years and counting

Today is our 4th anniversary. Woohoo! Some of our friends couldn't believe it either when I told them. I think they think we're "old".
