A quick picture

I took this on the way to church yesterday. Today we're exhausted, but I'll tell you about our Easter soon.

I just love the picture in the top left corner! As a child my parents took our Easter picture every year in front of a forsythia bush. Your picture brought back memories!

So, are you Russian? I am curious why you moved to Ukraine. Is English that commonly spoken where you live? I don't mean to pry, but I find other cultures fascinating.

Sweet kids in front of a picture of sweet kids!

Is it an advert for candy? I love the traditional Ukrainian clothes the kids in the ad are wearing and the traditional Ukrainian egg.

Your little girls look so cute and Jaan so handsome. The look like the could be relatives to the kids in the pic! Same type of coloring. Adorable.

Wendy, maybe that will have to be our new tradition! I was mourning that we couldn't take our traditional photo of Jaan and his buddies, like we have every year since he was a baby. Thanks!

Rebecca, no we're not Russian, at least not officially. :-) Our hearts are in Russia, but we can't be there now because of document problems. So, we moved to this Russian-speaking region of Ukraine when we had to leave Russia. No, English is uncommon here. :-) Everyone speaks Russian, with some Ukrainian thrown in now and then.

Lisa, no, it's a message from the President: "Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! President of Ukraine Viktor Yushechenko."
