We had a great visit with the family, and "T" consisted of borsht, apples, grapes, fruit we do not recognise, bread, and a big plate of candies and cookies... basicaly everything this and every other family in town could pull together with no notice...
We then went out on the street and met up with so many kids that we know and gave out mits that were made by a friend of ours back in Canada.. What a hit.. and this time it was not 122 out when we were giving out knitting. Amazing how much more they appreciated them today..hahaha
We had to ruch back because we were hosting a dinner for about 40. We had a group of the English speeking friends of Altynai's from the school, as well as David and Jayne, and a few other couples that work with and know these kids as part of a suport network .
After supper we gave the kids some new journals that the ladies brought with them from another friend of ours.. They were so excited to recieve them... Last year when we gave them out, there was a marked improvment in how the kids did.
