Celebrations and more work on the farm

Lots on the go today ,  Starting with a trip to the bazaar, then to Kolya's graduation, then on to a children's day celebration.  After that we picked up more lumber and headed to the farm to build the counters for the kitchen and get it set up .  I also brought Kolya's bed out and set it up in the boys living room .  It will be a day bed, and also where Kolya will sleep . 

One of the bunk beds in the girls room ..

Here is Kolya's bed.  Aigula is working on all the blankets and sheets now 

We brought one of the table sets from our apartment out to the farm as well so that the kids will have an extra table inside. 

There is a great work space for the kitchen now.  We went with three of everything so that Aigoola will be able to teach two kids at the same time , kind of like a coking school.  We have a nice island table as well as another old dinning table that can be used as a work center when we start canning .  

these are the dishes we went with .  When I was looking for sets they were about $50 a set of 6 , we were able to get this set for 18 for just $30 

we did not have time to paint the walls and ceiling yet, but we can't do it all, and it will also be a great job for the kids .The have chores in the morning and evening, then have a few hours in the afternoon for special projects like this . 

I missed the photo of the dish station where there can be a garbage pail, then a low counter with two bus pans and then a water tap and basin. 

We still need some towels and personal toiletries and barn boots  for the kids, and would love it if anyone wanted to help with this , just use the link on the side of the blog.  We would really appreciate the help.   Just 4 days and we are wheels up, ready or not!
