We miss home

Though we are having so much fun in Ukraine - we also miss Jeff very much and are getting ready to come home.

Andre is definitely homesick (though he is having a lot of fun here, but there are a few thing he lacks here) and talks about home in California every day. Here is his tonight's prayer: "Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for home, that we can see Papa, go to the beach, and to Disneyland. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

He also mentions during the day that he wants to go in the tent camping with Jeff.

Another drawback here, is that Church lacks Nursery, I guess supposedly they do have it, but it is in no way structured. The only time I tried to bring Andre in, there was a 5- and a 4-year-old (definitely not a Nursery age) and there was no lesson,no singing,no snacks, nothing. Just unstructured play, so it wasn't a big surprise to me when they brought Andre to me only after 5-20 minutes into it. From then on I have been taking him with me to the Sacrament meeting and then my Dad picks him up and takes him home, while I stay for the other 2 hours. This whole Nursery problem aslo lead to another thing on Andre's 'miss' list. He says: "Mom, there's no Nursery. The Nursery and friends are in California."
