|Crystal hard at work|
It was raining in the morning and rained hard when Carol and I arrived with the coffee and cookies... well us and Nikolai and Sasha arrived. The boys had been feeding the cows behind our house and caught up with us as we walked to the house where the construction is happening, and insisted on carrying all the bags.

Did I mention I fell in the mid again? This time over there just before lunch, luckily only damaged my pride and dirtied the seat if my jeans!

We were invited to MaxRudei's house at seven pm for an authentic Ukrainian dinner cooked by his wife Yulia and her mother, it looked like a holiday, there was so much food on the table. The team really enjoyed it many of them found foods that they knew , the same ones made by Mennonite relatives.

A neighbor who stooped in asked Max where the angle grinder was after seeing the handles, I don't know if they are amazed or horrified by the handles!
