Birthday Celebration

Today the orphange celebrated its birthday with a wonderful performance of singing and dancing by the children.  All four of our children danced in these…enjoy!!  🙂





It really struck me how sad it is that an orphanage would exist long enough to have a birthday.  I have said it before and will say it again, if they must exist this is as good as one could be.  We love each of these children and can identify nearly all of them by name and have sweet memories of our times with them.  It is hard to imagine that there are no parents to clap and cheer for them and how desparately each one needs a Mom and Dad to love and care for them.

We were delighted to be allowed to take our four for pizza again afterward and everyone had a great time.

Our Table at Chilantano's Pizza in Makeevka - We're already set in our ways, we all sit in the same place each time!!

We are figuring out that our kids need loads of good water so we’re being intentional about getting all we can to them each day.  While they would prefer pop, we offer good water and juice boxes in their favorite flavors.  Welcome to the world of our family, where we only drink water in restaurants for health and frugality!!  🙂  It was a fun day, all day, with them.

    I would like to know how many times you have banged your knee on the bricks under the table at Pizza Celentano. I never ever learned my lesson on this and banged my knee, hard, every time we sat down.

      Well…we haven’t had the problem. Not sure why…but thankful those are smooth bricks given this potential problem!! 🙂 We love their pizza!!
