Be Joyful in Hope

We have some new friends, over at  that have adopted 3 Ukrainian orphans and host some others occasionally.  There are 5 here right now.  Last Monday they came over and played with the chickens, colored, painted toe nails and fingernails, just played and had lunch.  It was amazing!  Saturday night we went to their house for a birthday party for the orphans.  We made new friends and the children have really stolen my heart.  Dave and I are considering how God may ask us to be involved.
In other news, at least one of our young girls has started laying eggs.  They are just the cutest little things.  very dark brown and smooth, nice hard shell and a beautiful almost orange yolk.  
Just a little while ago, Joseph and I were watching Ratatouille and he decided he wanted to cook something with me.  He wanted to create something with me in the kitchen.  So we went into the kitchen, found some ingredients and spices and threw them together.  I truly had no idea how it was going to turn out.  It was lots of fun and it turned out to be really good.  Now he is wanting to make ‘some kind of salad, but that isn’t a regular kind of salad’.  I have NO IDEA what that’s gonna be, since we have very little in the house, but it’s going to be fun trying.
