Today was a great day! I was getting updates from Christie all day about where they were and what the next stop was, and they finally made it to their destination (Kramatorsk, Ukraine) at about 6:00 pm our time (2:00 am there) and had 5 1/2 hours to unpack all their suitcases full of supplies and get them organized to be at the orphanage Antoshka first thing in the morning. I was really glad to hear that they made it and all of their luggage arrived with them! They had 17 suitcases full of therapy supplies and each of them was carrying a walker and checking it every time they boarded a plane. In all they hauled almost 1,000 pounds of supplies on five flights and by the grace of God everything went perfectly!
Ok, now on to day 2 of the bachelors: This morning I decided to let Owen try something new. He has never had real eggs, because he can't, too much fat in yolks... so I thought I would try my hand at low fat omelets. I used only egg whites, fat free cheese and low fat ham to make him his own omelet. It's not the most beautiful thing in the world, but I thought it tasted good!
Here is where the lesson I mentioned earlier comes in... Applesauce BEFORE bath! I think he was trying to spike his hair like mommy does when she gets him ready!
After lunch Owen took a long nap and then his Beema picked him up and took him to her house so I could get some much needed yard work done. At Beema and Papa Joe's house Owen discovered this Dogwood tree that he was really interested in. He liked to touch the flowers.
Owen loves being outside, and this is getting close to being a problem... He now understands how doors work, and is ALMOST, tall enough to turn the knob. Here he is doing his Stretch Armstrong impression trying to get back outside.
Owen also discovered an old masquerade mask in Aunt Amanda's room, this kept him entertained for a bit while he tried to figure out why he could pull it off of his face, but when he let go it jumped right back on!
