I know I should have had this post up the other day, but I've been busy, and I wanted to leave Sergey's post at the top for awhile.
Two years ago last Friday, was Tuesday the 6th, and two years ago today was Friday the 9th. I was never "healthy" while I was in Ukraine, starting with the trip over, and a day didn't go by without an upset stomach at some point. I'm sure the conditions of the institution and the very oily food didn't help. On these two days, I stayed home from the institution and hung out at the apartment with a couple others including 9 yo (at the time) Josiah, and one of the days his little sister Olivia. Here a few pictures from those days.

|Alice tried to move the table out, and after her adventure with the blinds, we all accused her of breaking the table too. :) Turns out that the board on top slides out, and flips open to make a big table if that makes sense.|
Oh the food! It was sooo sooo good! (But did I mention oily??) Not only was it delicious, it was beautifully presented. We had 3 cooks who got up at the crack of dawn to start cooking, and were there until usually 9 at night cleaning up. We ate in a shelter/veranda thing to the back of Pastor Gregory's courtyard, and they cooked in a kitchen that was back there too. Here are a few of the many pictures I took of the food!

Oh, and J Brian, the amazing eater behind them! ;)
That's it for this post... Thanks for reading!
