Hi everybody. Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. We haven't had a computer, but today our taxi driver took us to an Internet Cafe. So now I can post. I have had so much fun in Ukraine. We have a Flea Market so close to us. It has everything you would find in a Walmart or Target but cheaper. I have boughten most of my friends and family members a souvenir already.

At the orphanage when we go and visit Alex we play with all the kids in his group now. All the kids there are just so cute I really just wanna take them all home.

I'm so happy that today is our last Saturday in Ukraine. We will be home next Friday. YAY!!

Over the last few days it has been raining a lot and it is July. Also, like 2 days ago we saw like little snowflakes falling down. But now today, it is burning hot.

I'm really enjoying most of the food here. Yesterday for dinner we had pizza. We bought it at our bakery at the front of our apartments. It was so good. It had regular pizza sauce, cheese, and mushrooms. And then for dessert, we had something that looked like a creamy, chocolaty, cake roll, but was really a kind of dry cake. It wasn't that good.

Ukrainian T.V. is cool and weird. The only thing me and my mom watch here is Nickolodeon. I like to watch Spongebob. The theme song for it in Ukrainian is so weird. I video taped it one morning and will post it when I get back home .

In six more days I will be home. I can't wait.

Hi Julia,
I can't wait until you guys come home and we can all read about how your family all gets along - which I'm sure will be excellently!
It's really cool to read about your time in Ukraine and it sounds like you're having an awesome time and learning a lot. You'll never forget it, I bet!
Thanks for letting us read about it!
