Our first day of is complete and everyone is worn out. The team accomplished a lot today. If fact, we finished so quickly that Yuri had to leave to go to get more materials so we would have work to do tomorrow. Did he think we came to watch or work? Our team is great, all the guys are having fun and they all work very hard. After work we went to visit the local orphanage. WOW, what a great bunch of kids. There was one in particular, she was 7 years old and her name was Sasha. She was full of life and so adorable. However, its with great embarrassment that I have to admit that when it comes to soccer – Ukraine is 1 and USA is 0. The boys were awesome, they were just toying with us and still killed us. When we got there, they wanted to play their 6 against 6 of us so we accepted the challenge and we weren’t much of a challenge. They had so much faith we would score that they let their goal keeper bring the ball down and left their goal unguarded. It was a lot of fun though and I think the kids really enjoyed beating us and that’s all that matters is that the kids had fun and can talk about the day they destroyed the funny Americans in soccer. And to be honest it was probably pretty funny to watch. ITS NOT ABOUT US. We will tell more later, we have another tough day pouring the concrete foundation tomorrow so I am signing off for now.
