What a kind offer, Vera. What kind of bread?

We live in a small town so there will be no German bakery for bread. I have a bread machine and can make bread with that. I have a recipe for an oatmeal bread and of course white bread. Anna did say that she does not like cheese and that she likes oatmeal with fruit for breakfast. She also said her mother is a very good cook and they cook from scratch mostly.

It's not something I normally buy because we can take it or leave it, but I'll make sure to get some if she likes it. She said she really likes peanut butter and jelly.

Anna seems mature for her age. I basically told her that I just need her to be honest with me and like you said, if she doesn't like something she just needs to tell me. She also said she wants to experience family life in the US and she is looking forward to doing whatever we normally do. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily she interacted with Seth.
