Piano Recital and Potato Chips

Abigail performed in a piano recital at her music school on Saturday.  This, her second year of playing piano, had it's share of ups and downs and moments of her wanting to quit.  But she stuck with it, learned some new pieces and played well at the recital.  Video is uploaded to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDGPR28euTg.

On another entirely different topic, one enjoyable aspect of living overseas is encountering foods that we wouldn't find in the States.  These are two of our kids' favorite flavors of potato chips.  Caviar or crab, anyone?

Victory Day

May 9 - Victory in Europe Day as recognized by countries of the former Soviet Union, marking the end of World War II.  The center of town was crowded with people.  Bands played music and speeches were given.  We walked around with our new summer volunteer. Wandering further to the market, I took advantage of the smaller crowds and took a few pictures.
