So very tired

We wanted to let everyone know we made it here safe and sound, just exhausted.  We left our place in PA around noon, then it was a 3-4 hour drive to the airport.  We made it to the airport in plenty of time and took off around 7 pm.  The girls did great on the plane.  Keira had a few moments of crying, but nothing that lasted long.  Around 11 pm the girls fell asleep.  Thankfully we had great seats on the plane, where there was place to put a baby bassinet, which ended up coming in really handy.  And there was plenty of room underneath for Violet to spread out and sleep.

I love taking their picture when they are sleeping.  Anyway, the girls slept for about four hours.  Keira was a little cramped so she moved around, but basically stayed asleep the whole time.  Micah and I did not sleep at all.  I might have closed my eyes for a bit, but it wasn’t sleep.  We arrived here in Moscow about 4 am our time.  We got all our baggage, went through passport control and customs very quickly and found our friend waiting for us.  The ride home went by quickly because it was a holiday here in Russia, Women’s Day, and I think I dozed a bit as well as the girls.  It was about 7 am PA time (4pm Moscow time) by the time we made it to our apartment.  While the girls and I settled in a bit, Micah ventured outside.  The girls were in bed around 7 pm here and we went to bed very shortly after.  They only woke up 2 times, and thankfully not for very long.

We are still so tired today, we are hoping to have another good night’s rest so we can adjust as quickly as possible.  It seems like we need to keep moving or we just want to sleep.

Thank you for your thoughts.  Please keep them coming as we adjust back to life here.

That’s all for now, I just want to close my eyes for a second…
