Funny Duck Shoes

Mostly everyday when we go on a walk, there is this little girl from our apartment with duck shoes on. Everytime she takes a step it makes a duck sound. The first time me and my mom heard it we cracked up laughing. We still do everytime we here it.

Yesterday we went to Premier. It is a fancy restaraunt here in Ukraine. It is about a mile away from our apartment so we walk to it. It is nice because on our way over there we work up an appetite and then work of our meal on the way back. At Premier, I ordered a mushroom chicken dish. It wasn't that good so I traded it for moms borscht. I normally don't like borscht but this kind was very good. It didn't have big chunks of tomatoes in it and didn't have beets. I think it is my favorite Ukrainian soup.

I can't wait untill tomorrow because tomorrow is the day we get to take Alex out of the orphanage. Today me and my mom made the kids gifts. In it is a juice box, a teddy bear cookie, a napkin, and a fake phone. We got them a fake phone because everytime they see Alex with the one we bring him, they all want it. I can't wait to see how much the kids love their phone.
