Pictures in Ukraine

This a picture of one of the two beautiful churches in Kiev, Ukraine. The inside of it is amazing.

This is a picture of the new Harry Potter, but in Ukrainian.

This is just a beautiful statue in Kiev.

This is a picture my dad took of the Wendesday sunrise. He took it while we were on the train.

This is a picture of my cut foot. I stepped on a plug thing and it really hurt.

This is a picture of us eating dinner on the train. The Ukrainian food is called Piroshki. I liked the meat one better then the jelly filled.
That is all the pictures so far. Later I will post pictures of Alexsey because we did meet him. He is one if the cutest boys in the world.

I have to say...I am so jealous of you!! I'm sure you are soaking in everything and I hope you're having a blast!

Hi Julia, I've been reading your, your mom's and your sister's blogs.

I hope your foot is better! I'm sure your mom packed up a first aid kit, but be careful with walking barefoot: there is a reason why most countries in Eastern (and Central Europe) use slippers inside the house at all times.

As far as piroshki go, I, too like the meat and the potato ones better than the jelly filled ones.

Hello Julia,
I really enjoy reading about your adventures and seeing the pictures. I'm glad Dennis has such a great big sister to play with him and keep an eye on him. Does it seem to bother him when people point to his eye, like at the park? Does it bother you? I have a son with something physically different about him too and it can be hard for them sometimes. But Dennis is so lucky to have you and all his big wonderful family to love and protect him! Can't wait to hear about Alexsey. Oh and I hope your foot gets better soon and doesn't hurt anymore :)

Have Fun,

Dennis and Aleksey are very lucky to have such a sweet big sister helping their mama and papa on this trip. This is an awesome opportunity for you both in the traveling to another country but also being a part of the adoption experience.

Julia, I was so excited to find the link to your blog from your mom's last entry. Glad things are going well and I have to tell you that I think Dennis and Alexsey are so blessed to have you as a big sister. You are going to learn and experience so much this trip that you will be amazed when you get back home and realize how much you have grown up! Take care and best wishes for a wonderful trip. Praying for you in the Panhandle of Florida.

I'm so glad things are going well and you are enjoying yourself, for the most part. Your pictures are great and I love getting your point of view regarding the trip. I know you must be a blessing to your Mom and Dad, not only because you are a wonderful young lady, but because you are a loving sister to Dennis and Alexsey

I am loving all of your wonderful updates! To see this journey from your perspective is a blessing for me. Take care of that foot!!! : )

Great photos! And I loved seeing the photos of you and your brothers too!! Sorry you hurt your foot. I've found that going barefoot is a strange thing... In some parts of the world, people go barefoot (even when it's dangerous!) because they have no choice. In the US, we run around barefoot because we can. It is much safer than many other places. It's one of those luxuries we have that most people never realize how lucky they are to live with!
