Day 10

Today was another great day!!! We got up this morning and left the apartment around the same time we always do but this morning we were going to the corner to meet Christina and then head to the bus stop. We thought we were doing great, we got on the right bus number, but the whole time we are going he's not going the way we needed too, not going the way we need to go and everyone is off the bus at that point and we go ummm what do we do. So we used the little bit of Russian we know, and the address that is written in Russian, and tried to ask him if he would eventually be going our way. He told us to sit lol so we sat. About 10 mins later, we still hadn't moved, which we would later find out is normal because they are on a schedule and they stop every so often and take a break, but Luda calls (our paperwork facilitator in Kiev) and asks how we are doing this morning, and I said ummm and she said "I am ready to listen, what is wrong" so I explained to her. She got on the phone with the bus driver, and sure enough we were on the right bus, sorta, lol. 5 or so minutes later we begin to move, about 20 mins later we arrive about 2 blocks from our destination, which is normal. So here is what we should have done, we should have crossed the street to the other bus stop and got on the bus going in the opposite direction and we would have been there in 10 minutes. Big goof for us, but we lived, we learned and now we move on lol
The visit with the girls was short because we arrived an hour and half late, but it was still a great visit! I have said this once and I will have to say it again, and again, and again, and probably a billion more times I am in LOVE!!!

***Prayer request we hope to go to court this week, please pray that we go to court early this week and that everything goes smoothly***

Ok on to the good stuff...
