Just one example of Ukrainian creativity and resourcefulness.
A few pictures of the girls. As you can see, they enjoyed themselves. They even got to plant one cumcumber seed each!
This was just the beginning of their play time. By the time we were finished, not only were they covered head to toe in dirt, but they had also each decided to take a bite!
We went over to be a blessing to them, but I think that they ended up being more of a blessing to us. They were so grateful for the help that not only did they feed us (MMM she made the BEST chicken I have EVER had! I don't think I can ever cook chicken for her again after eating hers!), but showered us with gifts. They gave us pickles, a few other canned goods and most of their last bag of walnuts from their tree. Christina even tried to give me a beautiful new sweater! In the whole time that I have known Christina I have never seen her wear a new item of clothing. Her willingness to make such a sacrifice was very humbling and a lesson in giving. At the end of the day Yuri said, "Hmmmm. What can we do next Friday?"
