"Chillipaha idyot"

This morning Julie and I were up early to go to the bazaar to do a little shopping for our Womens Day party tomorrow.....I won't tell you what we bought yet because I know our friends here are following the blog too... Hay it was only ten sum each for the taxi ....what do you know!
We picked up a new lap today... what an amazing deal. God sure is good. At 3:00 we went over to the playground where we help with English class on Fridays. Last week we had 13 kids. so we planed for 20 just in case. When we got there there were about 8 or 10 kids ...this was ok, but then they started to pile in..and in ..and in.... 45 showed up for the first story telling and craft...and more continued to follow....I don't know what is going to happen next week.
Tonight we had Esar and his family here for supper. We had a nice visit. His Dad is a Dungan
farmer. and has a large field that he grows corn.... We are going to see about having him grow some sweet corn for us. ...Julie drove with Dr Tatyana and Vlady to the chiropractor for an hour... at a turtles pace..or in Russian "chillypaha idyot", only to find that he was in Germany...funny enough though, her back was feeling better by the time she got home..
Off to bed now ..big day tomorrow. A party at the orphanage in the morning and a Womens Day party at the apartment in the evening. Here are the flowers I bought for my three girls .
