Dinner Time!

Obviously, there are lots of new and/or different things for us to adjust to and so far we are all doing pretty well, in most areas. We discovered this week that Ethan hasn't quite adjusted to the later dinner time here in Macedonia. Dinner happens around here about 7 or 7:30 and that just isn't working for our little guy. Last night we planned to walk down and try out the neighborhood restaurant, Bravo's. Ethan had already told us at least three times that he was hungry and we had already distracted him with a snack and something "fun" to do an equal number of times. So, we stopped working on our tasks and began getting ready to leave. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something move under the dinning room table...just before I screamed (thinking it was a mouse or a cat or something else that crawled in from the balcony) I looked closer and saw this...

Happy Father's Day!

We celebrated Father's day with a trip to the playground (just down the street from our house)!

 Ethan had a great time on the see-saw and going down the {much too steep} slide! 
Good thing Daddy was there to catch him on the way down. 

Ethan wanted Daddy to wear his hat, so he could wear his Daddy's hat!

It can't be a celebration without ice cream...luckily, the corner store across the street was open! 
Ice cream before dinner, yummy!

Happy Father's Day to the Best Daddy in the World!

Photo of the Week

Each week we will post a photo and a brief description so you can enjoy the sights too!

We took a 15-20 minute drive up the Vodno Mountain to see the city from above!  It was breathtaking. We stopped at an Orthodox Church and restaurant and snapped this shoot of another church and Skopje below. You can also see the Vardar River as well.

Let us know if there is something in particular that you want to see!!

We made it!!

After 4 airports, 3 airplanes, and 22+ hours of travel we arrived in Skopje, Macedonia on Monday, June 4th!  Travel went better than we anticipated even though we had very little rest.  As soon as we arrived we hit the ground running!! Thanks to the help of Shelia and Arville, we were able to select a place to live and signed a lease on Tuesday. We were able to move in yesterday afternoon and we are settling in. It is so nice to have a place to call home! 

We can't help but be deeply grateful for the many people that have made it possible for us to be here! Thank you for you love, support, and prayers! We have much to share with you in the coming days so stay tuned!!
