#140 go to 10 Pacers games (7 done)
#131 let someone plan a trip for me
Ashleyne and I headed back down to Orlando to go visit Kristen and it was great not having to think about any of the details for this trip.
#173 go canoeing or kayaking
#252 go barefoot for a whole day
I had a nice chill day that only required walking down to the lake and out to the parking lot to pick up pizza. Now that is a pretty good combination in my book!
#124 go to Disney World
#287 don't watch TV 1 day a week for 50 weeks
This was just a good thing for me to be intentional in at least once a week unplugging from needless background noise.
#13 read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
#126 go overseas
It is hard to sum up 10 days and how much impact it can have on your life. Although they only scratch the surface, here's a link to my letter that I wrote after I got back and some pictures from the trip.
Our team at the airport
Right after we arrived in Kyiv (Kiev)
My buddy Sophie- we sent daily recaps via Marco Polo back to the US
Ali & Svetlana who are both in the US but from Ukraine
Hanging out waiting for the metro
YWAM base where we stayed
A fun outing to the water park for the kids on their last day
One of my favorite pictures from the trip with Dima & the girls
#288 find the right hat (in process)
#203 attend an opera
The Kyiv opera house was beautiful and I enjoyed Eugene Onegin, although we only stayed for part of it since it was 3+ hours and it had been a very long week. They had a little bit of ballet in it too, which I loved watching.
As a little extra enjoyment for my dedicated readers, here's a picture of me working on my Ukranian model pose. Definitely a future career possibility. Actually this is just what happens when I'm asked to stand and pose for more than a few seconds. I get uncomfortable and can't hold still when someone's looking at me. Truly lovely neck positioning. : )
#272 participate in a competition
#142 go to 10 Indians games (8 done)
A beautiful night for a church outing and hanging out with some of the youth!
#202 do something artistic
We all know that I am not artistic in the least. So I went into this outing at Painting with a Twist with my friend Julie with very low expectations. I was looking forward to hanging out with her and not caring how my painting would actually turn out.
Our finished products
(Side note: my roommate says mine looks like a mushroom cloud, which is now all I can see.)
#33 read John Adams by David McCullough
#132 visit Brown County
So the countdown is now at 30 months until I turn 40!! Time to get serious about working on this list and getting things knocked off of it. Thanks to everyone who's been helping me get things completed or offered to help in the future!
