another day in Kiev

I don't think it is still jet lag, but we are just not going to sleep at a decent hour. I do not believe that we have gone to sleep before 12:30a since we've been here, but then I don't wake up until around 10a. This might seem late, but since it's only 3:00a at home, I consider it quite early!

We met up with our friends Vicki and Rodney yesterday, and they took us to a great upscale cafe where we had wonderful food and dessert!! Here's what Damon and I had for dessert:

Since people like pictures, here are a few from our walks about town.

Us in front of the Kiev Opera House.

"Snowboarding" on the steps of the Opera House (No, I don't understand it either!)

LOTS of men playing chess in the park.


Independence Square in Kiev.


The kitchen at our new apartment.
The bedroom at our apartment.


The living room in our apartment.

Us in front of flowers on the street. Our friends in front of the Opera House.

If deserts look like that in Ukraine, I think I would just live on sweets. :) Praying for your second appointment to go well and for you to find your little one.

oops, didn't spell desserts right. Must have been all my drooling.

Your apartment looks pretty decent.

It is always a blessing to have another family to spend time with.

Might as well enjoy sleeping until whenever, because when the little one is finally with you, the sleeping in days will definitely dwindle :)

Leanna (and all)

We are praying for you guys that you find your son and are enjoying seeing Ukraine through your eyes. His room is soo cute. Saw you found our blog..it is a work in progress, thanx for leaving a comment:)
As you know we were looking at Ukraine and when we changed countries is was very hard for me, as I had pictured our son from there and had been researching Ukraine customs etc. So I still read blogs from the Ukraine,it is hard to let go:) God Bless, Celeste

How's the second appointment coming along, any new news? How aare you two doing? It's great to see you have another family there you can spend some time with.

All is well here...we are preparing Ella's room with more diligence now. Won't be long.
