It was an especially moving experience, because as we prepared to leave, an older man walked out of the church carrying an accordion, just like the one Great Grandpa Hebrink had.

Another day we walked to the old church at the bottom of the hill by our house.  We told Carla and Nathan about the Serbian Orthodox tradition of candle-lighting in memory, so all the kids took a quiet time to think about the family members we had lost during the year.


The kids were drawn to the park and pond across the way, so Dave volunteered to watch them while Carla and Susan meandered over to the newly-opened museum/estate of Prince Milos.


His motherís house, the Ljubica mansion, had been one of our stops the day before.  They were both constructed in the early 1800ís with tremendous Turkish influence.  The walls were surrounded by divans and there were tea tables and colorful carpets everywhere.  The wood was dark and the walls washed white.

There was quite an ensemble of historical documents, costumes, religious relics and weapons.  Susan was very proud of herself because she was able to translate more than 50 percent of the map that outlined the Kingdom of Serbia Ė all written in Cyrillic!
