Two years ago today, we came home from Ukraine with two new members of our family. It has certainly been a journey for all of us. Learning how to speak and write english. Being in a family that really loves them. Getting a lot of new friends at school and church. Taking up new interests like, skiing, sledding, water skiing, jet skiing, wake boarding, piano, break dance, soccer (of course), biking, driving, chores, getting good grades in school; which is the last thing on their list of liking to do! It's been an emotional roller coaster these past few years. We have learned a lot about ourselves, and what we are capable of. Mostly we learned how to be a lot more patient and to love unconditionally. I just look at them sometimes, and it amazes me that they haven't been with us all of their lives.

Team Ukraine is back, in full force! The boys were all so excited to be playing together again. They are so fun to watch. They haven't had one practice, but they know each other so well, that it didn't matter. They played great for not being practiced. They played a team that Andrew Garrett is a member of in the spring. Every time Andrew scored, the fans of the other team kept saying "It just isn't fair!" It was funny, and light hearted. We tied 4 to 4. Not bad for our first game! GO TEAM UKRAINE!!!
I will try and load the video, but I think it will be too big. It's just ov
er six minutes long. I have uploaded it to youtube, but they took out the audio, due to infringement issues. It is not as fun to view that way. I don't mean to break any laws, it's just more fun to watch with a great song. I didn't think it was even that popular!?!
