Dinner with 'da girls

We started affectionately calling the school teachers from Bucharest Christian Academy, 'da girls, when Stephen first got here and they were helping him shop and get set up in Bucharest. It seemed like every time we talked he was off to another store with...'da girls.

We met Whitney through a homeschooling friend and actually met her for lunch when she was in the upstate after Christmas. We go to church with them here and they let Maria stay with them for a few hours while we had an anniversary dinner my first week here.

These young ladies have been super in helping us adjust to the living away from the states. They let us know things before hand that we needed and how to find things here. We actually packed brown sugar, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips!

On the back row starting at the left is Amy and Laura. Seated is Luke, Whitney's friend from England, and Whitney. Luke and Whitney met on mission last summer.

We had a great time with them and the meal was outstanding! We even played a game of UNO much to Maria's delight.
