Dacha picnic

I'm way behind. This was over a week ago, but I still wanted to share it with you all.  I had asked for prayer for a youth picnic at our dacha.  In the midst of very rainy weather, we had a little break.  It was still a very wet picnic, but the heavy rain held off.  Everyone was brave enough to try a picnic, even with a drizzle coming off and on.

Flowers from Asya

We had a great time, and I think everyone else did, too!  Yes, there was a lot of sitting inside, near the stove, but that was just fun and cozy.  Thank you for praying!

Thanks for the pictures! It looks like the youth group is growing. There are two or three faces I don't recognize. Oh, that first picture of Asya is just precious!!

Looks like a wonderful day. For some reason, these youth pics look so much more happier than the ones from Russia. Maybe I'm just imagining it.

Also, I just really looked at the top sidebar photo of the kiddos for the first time. Beautiful!

Oh how fun! It looks like everyone had a wonderful time.

I meant to get a postcard for you but totally forgot this past weekend - we were so busy with Mother's Day.

I'll try again next weekend. :)

It looks like you had a great time. I wish I was there. You need to have Stephen bring marshmellows for the next picnic/campfire.

That looks like a fun day! I would have liked to have been there (and maybe it's a little warmer now too:) ). It's good to see the youth group again even if it's only in pictures!
