Day 5-- exploring the city (part II)

Well, exploring didn't go as planned.  LOL.  Kids really weren't up to walking around.  So, ended up getting pizza for lunch and going to a little convenience store for supplies.  Great news is at lunch his tooth looked more like a new tooth coming in rather than an abcess.  Asked him if it hurt & he said no.  Now, just hanging out at the apartment.  Going to try to find some places to go tomorrow.  Dying to get out and explore.  Or, at least find some type of city park for them to play at.  Anyone out there know of some please let us know.  Want to go & play w/ the kids.  Not much else going on at the moment.  Still getting to know each other.  Have learned that Logan is way too into his hair.  LOL.  More than the girls at home are!  Seeing bits & pieces of Summer's personality coming out and it is so cute. 

Wished we'd have packed for more days.  We were trying to save space.  Now, have to wash clothes but the washing machine is so tiny it is taking awhile.  That, and no dryer.  Hoping some of the clothes dry tomorrow.  Going to eat dinner here this evening.  Maybe play Uno w/ the kids.  Low key stuff for now.  Weather isn't bad at all and no snow in sight.  Should be meeting up w/ other families tomorrow some time.  Can't wait.  I'm ready for Monday to come b/c even though we don't go home, it IS the week we go home.  Like I said, like the country and people a lot but there is no place like home no matter where you go in the world.  More to come.  Wish I could post the pics but Warren forgot the thing that plugs in to upload pics w/.  Enjoy your weekend everyone.  Great apartment, great kids, nice weather, fantastic sitter at home.  I have no way to complain about anything.  Praying it continues to be smooth.  Monday is the big test b/c that's when all the real paperwork starts w/medical exams, passports and such.  This coming week we'll also have to get them visas to enter the country with.  All one step closer to being home and being a family.

  2. We adopted from Bulgaria in 1997. We rented a car and driver for the day and went to Rila Monastery for a day trip. It was wonderful to get out of the city and see rural Bulgaria esp since our son had grown up in a rural area and Rila monastery was really impressive. I love the pictures we have from that day.

  3. We also enjoyed the flea market at Alexander Nevski Square and there was an open air book market right outside McDonalds and we got a Bulgarian/English side by side children's bible as well as some disney books in Bulgarian.
