This morning Kolya was working on finishing the trench for the water line. Julia painted casings for doors, and Karina was helping Doug put it around the windows, while Garry and I were teaching.
Marcie was cleaning out the bottom cupboards trying to find the source of the corn millers flying around the house. She found a suspect bag of beans and we tossed it. Now it is very organized down there too.

Garry told me there really was going to be a student picnic at our house (outside) at 5 pm. He had gone to the store with Maria and bought hot dogs and 15 loaves of bread and she would take care of everything. She sliced bread and peeled plastic off the hotdogs.
She asked me if it was normal for visitors to clean your house because Ukrainians would never do such a thing, it would be rude. I explained that Ev had cleaned to help before the team came and Carol and Marcie were also trying to help me while the team was here, that was one of the reasons they came. Yes, it is pretty normal for visitors who stay overnight to help out around the house, I guess.
|Yesterday afternoon they put in these two windows- |
the holes were a little small so they had to trim some tin.
|Good thing it was not the new line, they were covering it up.|
|Painting and trim|
Marcie is standing on the countertop to paint around the window.
Soon there was a football (soccer) game going on in the yard and a fire roaring in the firepit.
They also tried out the boccie balls I bought at the JSYK store in Dnepro. Garry said they liked it.
|They even made some seating|
|There was a Frisbee flying too|
|Don't let it hit Garry's car!|
|Why are they laughing?|
