Our driver is still out of town so he called a taxi for us this morning. We were supposed to call him once we made it to the taxi so he could tell him where to take us. So we got in the taxi, tried to call Rostik but our Ukrainian phone had run out of minutes so we where sitting in the back thinking what in the world are we going to do and how are we going to tell the driver where to take us. Thankfully, just a couple days ago I took a picture of the orphanage from the road view where we get dropped off. I showed him that picture and thankfully he knew exactly where it was and took us there. Praise the Lord for that picture. Had we not had that I don't know what we would have done.
Rostik must have called a driver for us after our morning visit because there was a taxi waiting for us or I should say impatiently honking at us while we were trying to figure out what we were supposed to do. LOL The other couples translator (Julia) that is always with them came up to the taxi for us and talked to him to make sure he was our driver and Rostik must have already told him where to take us because off he went and we arrived at the correct apartment complex so that was good. Julia wrote down on paper the address to the orphanage and the address to approximately where we live so that next time we can get in the taxi and show them the piece of paper and they should know where to take us. So we are very grateful for that. Hopefully that will make the next few days (or however long Rostik is gone) go smoother. Oh how we miss him!
For the afternoon visit Jim met up with the other couple and road with them to and from the orphanage so that was good that he didn’t have to worry about getting a cab or anything.
On the way back home he stopped by and figured out how to add more minutes on our phone so that we will be able to call people here in Ukraine.
Todays visit with Mina was just about the same as usual. We played outside today because it was a much cooler day! She enjoyed riding in daddy's lap on the merry go round thingy.
Myla and I stayed at home this afternoon. She managed to take her naptime diaper off between the time we layed her down and the time she fell asleep in bed so she woke up with wet bedding & a wet blankie. She doesn't like it very much when she has to wait patiently for her "blankie" to air dry after it's been washed.
We had chicken and rice soup for supper that I made (although it is hot here- & definitely not soup weather :) because Myla and I have had tummy problems since yesterday so I thought that might be soothing. It was good but Chicken soup just doesn’t taste right to me without chicken base or bouillon cubes for added flavoring.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day or evening whenever it is that you may be reading this. Please say an extra prayer for Myla and I to feel better tomorrow. Thank you all!! We will post pics tomorrow!
