Finally...An Update...With Pictures!!!

Tom Says: Who knew that this blogging thing would be so hard...

Sorry All, It's been a busy month.  As you might know Mary is feeling better but that just means that she's busier than ever.  We've started schooling again, been to a dozen plus doctors appointments, started soccer for the littles, football for Ethan, met with the social worker(s) I'm busy at work (and school), and it seems that if only our days were about 6 hours longer, we might be able to get 6 hours of sleep. 

 But we're having good times, Tolly is doing well and Alina has gained some weight,  but still doesn't eat solids yet (Yaay pediasure/ensure/boost).  All the kids are too cute and we have pictures to prove it, so without further ado:

The Church threw us a baby shower.

Here we are in our Finest Ukrainian wear
Too Cute!

Bonus points for knowing it without Googling it
We met our friends here, dressing alike was coincidental (Homeschoolers what can you say)

Martha & the Girls
Boy with a stick, having fun, what else can you say!
Nice boat (or is it a ship) contains the answer to the above question

Dad says: uh oh, who went overboard? (nobody, really, I think I sneezed there)

Leaving the boat after a good ride

we'll try to do better and post once a week or so. Seriously though, the Lord is good, we're adjusting, and it's a good life Charlie Brown...


  1. Great to see pictures of all of you! I can't believe how much the girls have all grown! And Ethan is so tall!!! Do you remember when you went to Mt Vernon with us and Leanore wanted that talking Martha Washington doll so bad??

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the update! I've been checking here every day waiting very impatiently for new pictures. But if anyone understands the busyness/craziness, it's me. :) The 2 families dressed alike made me laugh...homeschoolers for sure. And I can say that since we are. So glad to see the littles doing so well. Love and hugs to your family!

  3. I anxiously await the updates too. Always happy to hear about your family! Please keep them coming.

  4. It was a George Washington doll, and she still has it! LOL He's missing part of a leg now though.
    Hopefully we'll be able to do that again soon.
    We didn't go into ANY of the gift stores while we were there.
