1) Today my family went to a Russian speaking church. While we were there, the pastor called us up to the front and introduced us and said we were going to Ukraine, and that's why were there. He noticed I had been singing with the congregation during the songs, and asked if I spoke Russian! See, I didn't know the customs of the church, and I didn't want to be rude, so I pretended I knew what I was doing, and lip-synced the songs!
2) If you read my blog, could you comment? I just want to know how many people actually read my blog. I really don't have any way of knowing, and I'm curious.

Today we started drama training. The play we're doing is called Spellbound: Toymaker & Son, and it basically describes Creation to the Resurrection. It starts with the Toymaker & his Son creating a place called Toy land, with special toys. (The Prince and Princess.)
They are tricked by the Evil Magician, and toy land is spellbound. The Toymaker sends his son to break the barrier that had formed when the Prince was tricked by the Magician. (NOTE: I'll post a better version of this. I was half- asleep when I wrote this!)
We also had language training, and we learned things like "Me llamo es..." and "Donde esta es el bano?"
Time to sleep!
PS: HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Drama training. Again. All. Freakin'. Day. There really isn't much to report about that, we just practiced our drama over and over and over and over...
I promise, these will get more interesting, but while we're training\, we have early mornings, long days, and late nights.
Tomorrow we travel!
