Tonight Mark and I ate barbecued goat on a slice of bread, outside down by the Russian monument. It was so tender and delicious.

The bonus was sitting beside this sweet little girl. We talked ba ba ba for a while. June 1st is Children’s day so lots of celebrations going on, and the little girls are very dressed up.

Then a few more joined the group.

I love this group photo with us making hearts with our arms.

It was great to hear them say they would like to become doctors, engineers, artists, teachers, and one young woman wants to be a model.

20140521-201644-73004151.jpg
They sang their National anthem for me.

The next class was also full of excitement to answer my questions.

I was able to visit a maternity hospital to deliver baby bundles which made my day very special to hold a newborn baby on the day Westie was born one year ago. It brought ears to my eyes.

Volunteering at School 65. May13/2014

This morning Sonia and I went to visit school 65. I worked in the 10th grade.

20140513-135353.jpg
I brought pictures of my family, so they learned about my mom, dad, husband, son, daughters, sisters, brothers, and of course Weston was a hit.

20140513-135522.jpg
Sonia taught the 8th grade class.

They treated us to buzz, and fresh beef noodle soup.

20140513-135711.jpg
When asked what I liked the best about Mongolia, it was easy to say the bright blue sky, and the handmade wool baby shoes.


When asked to sing an English song, they treated us to this song.
It was wonderful to be back in the classroom again.

Happy Mother’s Day May 11, 2014

I would like to wish my dear wonderful mom a wonderful Mother’s Day. You worked very hard to raise us, and for that I am very thankful.
Since I knew I would not be spending the day with my children I invited a few women over for a baby quilt sewing lesson.

20140511-191500.jpg
Elaine helped with all the calculations to make the squares, while Sue did a great job cutting and sewing. Ang traced all the blocks.

20140511-191652.jpg
Sue picked Disney fabric.
I enjoyed teaching them how to cut the fabric.

20140511-191807.jpg

20140511-191818.jpg
Sue finished her top, and will look forward to seeing Ang’s when she gets it sewn together.

20140511-192011.jpg
I had a wonderful day sharing my knowledge with these fun ladies, and I am sure a Mother’s Day I will always remember.

Westie is having fun

Looks like Westie is having fun playing in Laura’s cupboards.

20140508-181359.jpg
I can’t believe he will be a year old in a week.
Yesterday was the IWAM meeting and I purchased some more little shoes. They are so cute and all handmade and only $6.00 each.
