2nd Time with Alexsey

While waiting at our apartment, I started building a Racko house. Later on Dennis joined me. I wouldn't have made one if my mom played with me. She was mad at me because I always would beat her

Here is a picture of the finished thing.

Later on, walking to the orphanage, my mom and I saw this dog. It is so cute. We just had to get a picture of it.

When we got him, one of his caretakers changed him into the clothes we brought for him. The shirt was perfect, but the pants were a little big.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of me and him.

It is late at night here and we are getting ready to go to bed. We might play a couple games of Racko before we go to bed.

Once you are grown, educated, married and a mom, you will be a fantastic one. You are so good with your younger sibblings.

I'm so glad that you were able to go on this trip to the Ukraine.

How come Alexsey always has a hat on? Are they afraid he'll get cold?
