Home a week and a half

Things are going very well.... the kids are getting along and the transition into our family is going well. I am always amazed at how well the new and the old children come together. We have had a very positive time so far. Jonas is doing great with his not smoking... today while out he rubbed a cigarette butt into the road with his foot... telling me ughh... He seems to be over the worst of his withdrawl. All have adjusted to having rules ( not many in their orphanage we think they were allowed lots of freedom ) , eating has not been an issue except keeping enough fruit -- we ate at least 100 lbs of apples so far, bunches and bunches of banannas, bags of plums, nectarines, oranges and peaches ( 3 bags of each), 20 lbs of grapes... not to mention 10 loaves of bread, 8 gallons of milk, etc. etc. etc.... they are not to picky. We have no leftovers..... :)

I will post pictures of Donetsk and Kiev... more sites of the cities later. Tonite we actually went on a date..... it was so good to do a "normal" thing again.... I love being home with them all.

How many haircuts have you given? Seems like we were constantly trimming our boys hair his first months home! I am still amazed at you and your family! May God continue to bless you, and give you friends with orchards!
