Daddy was not around for Josiah's actual birthday. He went to a retreat with some of the other men that are training the future pastors of Russia. Here they are enjoying some "shashleek". My favorite!
Here are some of the men in front of one of the "cabins" they stayed in.
Since my neighbor Sharon(one of the other missionary wives) and her kids were home alone also, they came down to our place to help celebrate Jojo's birthday.
Last year at Josiah's birthday party one of the twin boys kept trying to blow out his candle so I thought everyone should have the opportunity to blow out their own candles. We sang "Happy Sunday to you" to the other boys.
