Minimum furniture, lack of water line and canalization, wiring, seemed to be repaired a lot of times, walls from the clayed wood planks of white color, deficit of clothing and toys, a parrot in a cage under the ceiling old stove and a smell of pies – these are the conditions the Grushas kids are raised in.
Normal people, purposeful and hard-working parents Inna and Sergei, despite all endless financial difficulties and lack of personal place of living, live and work every single day doing their best to make their children happy.
They live in a small wooden house in a village of Zhitomir region. There is no work here to be paid money for. To feed the family Sergei and Inna raise vegetables and cereal crops near their house and keep fowls. But this is not enough to provide children with wholesome food. Inna I Sergei buy milk and meat from the home-folks paying money, received from the government as an assistance to the large family. When money is over Sergei works for farmers in neighbor villages and gets payment by food products.
Inna and Sergei dream to have a cow and a couple of pigs. In that case they would have solved problem of meat and milk, at least partially.
They have no money to allow a pig or a cow but they hope on and have built a shed for cattle.
Their children go to kindergarten and school in a neighbor village and leran very well. They help parents at home and almost don’t have time to play. They simply got used to work, not to play.
The children have simple dreams and wishes comparing with the ones of city children.
