April 21, 2013 Relief Society Activity

I think all the snow is gone now.  There was one pile that was thrown off the roof of our building that sat in the shade, slowly melting.  As of yesterday, it is finally gone.  The weather has been quite nice this week.  We had a little bit of rain but the temps were nice.

Now that the snow is gone, we have to watch out for the bumps and potholes in the sidewalks.  You cannot just assume that the sidewalk is going to be even.  When we left the church building Friday night, everything seemed normalna.  But when we came back on Saturday, the whole street was torn up and they're redoing everything.

Here's a couple of photos showing the damage the weather has done over the winter.

The stucco has just peeled off this building with the thaw.

Here are some stairs outside the Polish Consulate.  I think some of the damage was done by vehicles!

Of course it was the rainy day that we got to go out and visit Galia's school again.  It has been quite a while since we were able to visit.  On the way there, we had to go through a muddy path.  I had to hang on to the fence to keep from sliding down the hill there!  I think my shoes weighed an extra five pounds after that.  I should have taken a photo!  But, we made it after all and had fun visiting with the class.

We played a game with the kids.  They blindfolded us and had us draw on the chalkboard. 


We also went into another class to let them practice their English on us.  These children are so well behaved.  We really enjoy visiting them. 

This boy's shirt says Men are Always Right.  We had fun teasing him about it because it's PINK!

We had a Relief Society activity on Saturday.  One of our sisters is very gifted artistically and offered to teach us how to do a drawing.  The rest of us are not so artistically gifted, but we had a great time anyway.  The elder's Kazakh instructor Zhansayu came too.  We were able to communicate OK.

So, now we know how to draw a yurt.
One of our elders has artistic talent.  He drew a chart for us to track our district goals.  He went the extra mile to make it with Kazakh legendary characters and local landmarks.
