A few more random pictures

I apologize to those of you who think you are going crazy because all of sudden there are pictures in the posts! :) :) I went back in and edited the posts over the time we were in Ukraine to add some of the pictures, so if you haven't checked you may want to skim over the last couple of weeks' worth of posts.


And a few more pictures that didn't quite make it into the old posts:


Blue skies in Kyiv


One of the results of my infamous pizza-ordering skills

A large playground in Khmelnitsky


The boys outside the SDA appointment door
(they have no idea of the significance of the door; we just asked them to stand here and get a picture)

Okay, this last picture needs a little explaining. Those of you who followed our first adoption journey may know that we spent some time at a playground in Kyiv close to our apartment while we were waiting for our flight home. At this playground Zhenya launched himself off of a playground tower apparently expecting to be caught (even though no one was waiting to catch him). It was our first parenting experience of "oh no, we just injured our child" although he wasn't actually injured (although pretty shaken up, as were we!). Here is Zhenya a little over a year later, going down the exact pole that he had tried to go down (but neglected to actually grab hold of) the last time we were in Kyiv. This time he didn't fall. :)

Just scrolled back through the pictures. Your girls are ADORABLE! I'm so glad they've finally found their family!

I just looked through your pics. What DARLING little kids you have! You better start preparing for the "are they all yours" comments 'cause you are getting ready to be innundated with them. They look like little stairsteps. ADORABLE!

Did I already mention how cute they are?

The girls are so precious! All four of your kids are just adorable!
