More goodbyes and so on

Saturday morning half our group was out with Victor for a Mennonite tour while our son Micah and Crystal went with us to Dnepropetrovsk where we did a little touring with Eugene before dropping him off at the airport for his flight. Two of the girls came down to our house before 8 am to say goodbye to him, and we went by the new barn so he could say goodbye to Karina, who had guard duty.

We went into the big Orthodox church downtown, a mall and the art market, where we had to push start the car when the starter didn't work! Then I stayed in the car while they bought sharma for lunch so we didn't turn it off until after taking Eugene to the airport, although it started every time for the rest of the day.

 Garry drove along the river to get to our next stop where we we going to speak to an English class. We passed a large gathering of motorcyclists near the island along the riverbank.

 Actually, Micah and Crystal did most of the speaking, they got to answer questions  for an hour, or more. Afterwards we did some shopping while Garry got a haircut (the teacher knew a good and cheap place... that was the name of it!)

Then we went down to the island and walked around, watched some beach volleyball, Micah and Crystal rode a ride, and we met Denis, Victor's son that Micah knew because he spent two summers in Canada visiting our farm.

After that we went out to dinner before heading back tot he village, we even got home before the other group, who were a little battered from the bumpy trip to the Molosnika colony. However, Carol and Roy and Wilbert found some of the places where their ancestors lived.

Victor had stayed overnight, since they got home after ten pm Saturday, and he was driving some of the group to Dnepro for church, since everyone doesn't fit in our van. We had oatmeal and toast for breakfast, the guys loaded up some milk and we were off to the city. Three of the students came along with us, and they wanted to ride in Victor's blue van, so we had only Micah and Crystal with us. 

We went to Morningstar this week, where we normally go to church and had two people translate into English for us and our guests.

After church we went to the park where Wilbert bought us lunch, and the students had some fun.

 The tulips were blooming in the park and everyone was fascinated by the tiny dog in Ukrainian dress and took photos with their cell phones.

 The hotdogs were interesting, they weren't hot, but the bun was, and they had chopped cabbage, pickles, ketchup and mayo. The french fries were hot, anyway. It was nice sitting under the tent, too.
