Stories in the Missional Journey of Bruce & Deborah Crowe

July 26, 2012

Tonight we made a quick fire, busted out some coveted imported marshmallows and made s’mores. We took advantage of our ‘adopted’ child Svychek and had him snap a quick family picture. I think it’s the first one since we had Abigail 4 months ago. The weather has been amazing this week in Ukraine, going for nightly walks and not breaking a sweat!

Abbey continues to bring smiles to all our faces.  She has a bit of a temper, and her fiery red-ish bonnet suits her.  We still get many comments as we walk in public with a new born.  In Ukraine they keep their babies stuffed inside for the first year, and do crazy things like not let them sit up or stand because it’s bad for them.  Many times you hold a baby here and their muscles are poorly developed, they just wobbled all around like jelly:)

Noah the pirate.  He’s armed and dangerous.  We’re looking at some public school options for blackbeard and his three older shipmates.  Time for them to learn the language and take to the seas.  We were originally hesitant to put them in school for the sake of negative influence, but I think they are ready to do the influencing.. hopefully mostly for good.
